Hi,

 

This series of laptops (yours and many others) only have 1 option for keyboard:

 

Full-size, island-style keyboard with numeric keypad in black or white finish. Gesture support: MultiTouch gestures
enabled, two-finger scrolling, and pinchzoom as default
Taps enabled by default
Support for Windows 8 modern trackpad

 

Therefore you can't replace the keyboard alone, you also need to replace the motherboard which SUPPORTs a backlit keyboard. If available, this would be a very expensive upgrade.

 

Regards.

BH
