If your computer is a "desktop" computer, it should be a "no-brainer".

The USB port on your computer would supply power to the keyboard to run the back-lights.

 

But, since you have a notebook, you'll have to find a keyboard that physically matches the size of your current keyboard, and then hope that the notebook's motherboard will supply electrical power to the back-lights.

This sounds like a tough task!

>>  Full-sized spill-resistant keyboard; optional back-lit keyboard keeps you productive in low-light settings

 

lists that such an option is available, or maybe, was available when this model was first manufactured.
