8770-w backlit keyboard

I have a 8770-w and one of my keys has become unresponsive. Is it possible to upgrade keyboard with a backlit keyboard.

8770-w backlit keyboard



The specs says:


The HP spill-resistant keyboard is designed using a thin layer of Mylar film under the keyboard and a drain system that funnels fluid through a hole in the bottom of the notebook. This minimizes the risk of damage to sensitive components underneath. The 101/102-key compatible keyboard features a full-pitch key layout with desktop keyboard features, such as editing keys, both left and right control and alt keys, function keys, and 19.05 x 19.05 mm key pitch (center-to-center spacing). U.S. and International key layouts are available. Other features include hot keys for instant access to power conservation and brightness.
Optional Backlit Keyboard (select countries)
Function key to toggle backlit settings - Off/Full brightness/Half brightness


Now, do you know your country had this option ? If not then you need a new motherboard which supports a backlight keyboard for your country - this is an expensive option now, much cheaper when bought the machine (could be 1/10 or less).
