Re: Replace standard keyboard with a backlit keyboard on lenovo ideapad 320

Hi Faizanpathan99,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Would you have the machine number to be specific on your model?


Checking with the product specification sheet for Ideapad 320 for both 17 inch model 80XM and 15 inch 80XV laptops showing other keyboard variants are non backlit that can be similar to yours.


This same condition would reflect the motherboard that usually holds the socket for backlighting on the keyboard which will not be available if your model is intended to have no backlit on setup. Replacement systemboards with backlit connector would appear an expensive option.


You can check on your machine for the backlit keyboard connector if available as shown below.

Hardware manual here.

Hope this help answer your query.
