Re: Replace standard keyboard with a backlit keyboard



The whole HP 15-ayxxx (xxx = 000 to 199) of laptops only have one option for keyboard:


      Full-size "island style" keyboard with numeric keypad
     TouchPad with multi-touch gestures enabled
     Taps enabled by default
     Support Modern Trackpad Gestures


Therefore you can't replace the keyboard with a backlit one because the motherboard does not have connectors for keyboard lights.
