Replace standard keyboard with a backlit keyboard

Hi,

 

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.

 

Regards.

BH
