X0S19UA-Change keyboard to backlit keyboard

X0S19UA or 15-bn070wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I am looking at buying the 15-bn070wm laptop that walmart carries with the realtree design. The laptop does not come with a backlit keyboard and I was curious if there is a way that I could purchase a ugraded backlit keyboard and install it I know some models have the backlight connector under the keyboard but they just do not come with them installed? If so what model keyboard should I purchase and would the laptop follow the HP pavilion 15 series disassembly steps?

Hi,

 

It is much better and cheaper to buy this option now because backlit keyboard alone won't work, you need a motherboard which have ports for you to connect those lights. Buy this option now may cost you say $50, replace it later may cost you ten times or more and in many cases not-workable.

 

Regards.

That would be a great idea if you could purchase that laptop with the backlit keyboard but the only place that I have found that laptop is as a already built laptop at walmart. I can not find it on the hp laptop to build.

Hi,

 

HP has dozens of different models/products, not just one. It is up to you but my warning: backlit keyboard alone WON'T work, you also need a motherboard which has places/connectors to supply power for all those lights.

I completely understand that and my question was does this laptop motherboard have the connector for the backlight. Maybe I worded the original post wrong and am sorry if this confused you. I understand that the company has many different models but as I also stated I am interested in the Realtree design. Thank you for being concerned that I will not be able to do this due to the motherboard model. That is why I am here to hopefully resolve this question.
