HP Keyboard Backlight issue

HP Recommended
HP EliteBook 2560p
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I recently upgraded from Win 7 To Windows 10 and even stopped auto-updates.

How do I know if I have a Backlight keyboard? I asked because I saw in the official user manual as below 

                                                                                                           Manuel Link:


" Keyboard light button and ambient light sensor: Turns on the keyboard light and automatically adjusts the
                                                                                              display brightness based on the lighting conditions in your

                                                                                                                                                         Hard Page no:14, PDF page No 22



What do I need to turn on the backlight on my laptop 

if my function buttons work but don't turn on anything of backlight and their sign are as


[f3 - Sleep,  f4 a rectangle with 2 vertical lines beside it (I saw the same sign-on VGA cable), f5 is blank, f6 low vol. , f7 increase vol.   , f8 battery sign, f9  small sun ( was working as decrease brightness when in brightness settings), f10 

large  sun ( was working as increase brightness when in brightness settings), f11 sun with a triangle filled half solid and half with lines)  f12 blank ]


I saw a solution but it was in bios setup in the action center

I thought it can do something wrong.


please help if you know something

It does not have a keyboard backlight.

It might have a light for the keyboard on the screen with the button right beside it



Hope it helps,
