how do i turn on the keyboard backlight? Pavilion dm4 2033cl

I am pretty positive that my laptop does have a backlight. However, I didn't need it at the time and I shut it off. But now I can't turn it on. I originally remembered adjusting it through the power options and that there was a little slider to adjust the brightness of either the screen or the keyboard.  I could have been wrong though, since I no longer see the second slider for the keyboard brightness.

I have tried everything I could find to get the light to turn on. I used the mobility center but there is no keyboard option. I have tried the fn + spaacebar, fn +f5, and my keyboard does not have a specialized key to adjust the keyboard backlight either.

 

Anyone know how to turn on the backlight?

Your notebook isn't delivered with a backlit keyboard. That feature is reserved for only a few select models. The screen brightness and keyboard backlighting are altogether different systems. Backlighting is controlled by a special key on the keyboard and display brightness can be controlled by two special keys on the keyboard.

 

The following image shows what the backlighting and display brightness keys looks like.

Thanks. When you said it didnt come with a backlight, I realized I was thinking about my netbook functions while I was on my laptop.
