Hi,

 

Are you sure this option is on your machine ? If Yes flease use the foloowing methods:

 

 To turn the keyboard back light on or off, use one of the following methods depending on your model.

    Press and hold the fn key and then press the space bar .
    Press the F5 key.
    On some models, the back light key is f12 .
