I recently bought a probook 450 g3 and want to try and change the backlit keyboard duration settings. ive tried finding the settings in teh bios and operating system with no luck. ive also found some drivers for it but none of the drivers are compatible with windows 10. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You only have this option is the board has it built in or change the board to a compatible version board that has this feature. So you have to look at the Service manual to verify if yours has this option or not.

Run the KEYBOARD video.

 

Then check to see if your motherboard has the ZIF connector for the backlit keyboard.

 

This way we will know for sure that you can install a backlit keyboard.

 

Then we can help you find the exact part number you will need.

Probook 450 G3 Backlit Keyboard

Just to clarify, I already have a backlit keyboard installed. What I want to change is the duration for which the keys stay lit. When i wiggle the mouse or type, the keyboard illuminates. If I stop, the backlight will turn off after 5-10 seconds. I am wondering how to increase this duration to minutes or even to never stop illuminating.

Sorry about my misinformation.

 

I just ran your BIOS simulator and in the Built-in Device Configuration there was no option to set the TIMEOUT???

 

But in the BIOS Setup manual for this model it has.

 

 HP PC BIOS F10 Setup Guide Document Version 1.01 For Business Notebook and Desktop Models, N Family...

For this model it has this.

 

 HP Business Notebook and Desktop PC F10 setup overview Technical White Paper Technical white paper

 

Backlit Keyboard Timeout

Specifies the timeout period for the keyboard’s backlit LEDs

15 seconds

 

And does not seem to be the option to change it???

 

What is the 4th number of your serial number??? "It will tell me the year it was manufactured."

 

Sorry for any confusion.
