I think for upgrade of the keyboard, but I want to know is it possible to upgrade it with backlit keyboard?
My machine is Pavilion 15-p253nu, W7x64.
Many thanks in advance!

Thank you for your query.
I understand that you would like to upgrade your keyboard. The keyboard is integrated into your top cover, so you would need to replace the top cover, to replace the keyboard. Here is a link to the :
Please note chapter 3, page 18, item 2 for the recommended replacements. Please be aware that this is not considered a customer replaceable part. Chapter 6 is" Removal and replacement procedures for Authorized Service Provider parts" and has the removal procedure if you choose to do it yourself.

Unfortunately when I opened my laptop, I didn't see where to connect the second cable for the backlit keyboard, so I cannot do the upgrade that I planned. I think that the place for second cable should be next to the place for the touchpad, but there is only empty space...
Thanks for the quick response!

Thank you for your reply.
If you look at chapter 6, page 52, of the maintenance and service guide, it will show you the location of the cables for the top cover, which includes the keyboard. If your replacement requires an additional connection, then it would not be compatible.
