I understand that you are looking to upgrade your Keyboard to a backlit keyboard.
Here is the HP Pavilion 17 Notebook PC Maintenance and Service Guide. You will see that it says Full Size Backlit 3 coat paint island-style Keyboard with numeric key pad black with red LED is listed because some models came with that type of Keyboard (page 4 Chapter 1 Product description).
When I look at the HP PartSurfer using your specific model number, there is not an option for you to use the Full Size Backlit 3 coat paint island-style Keyboard with numeric key pad black with red LED.
I am unsure about plug and play information for backlit keyboards. You could try to contact us and see if they have more information about where you can get a backlit keyboard and plug and play information.
