Pavilion 17-G133CY
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

HI, i have a few questions about my HP Pavilion 17-G133CY Laptop. 

1. i have opened it up a few time to clean the fan and heat sink, replace damaged USB Daughter Board, general cleaning and i see that my keyboard can be upgraded to the Backlit version.  What is the part number for the Backlit keyboard for my type of laptop?

2. i don't use the DVD Drive that much and i was wondering if i could replace it with a drive that can hold another HDD?  i see companies making replacement bays that can do that.  Can my laptop do that?  

 

 

Here are a few videos
