I have a Z500 without backlit Keyboard and want to change it to backlit.
1. Is it just a Hardware Change of the Keyboard or is there additional cabling, bios Change etc required?
2. Where can I get such a Keyboard with backlit for Z500?

I contacted Lenovo and they told me that These Keyboards are not available as spare parts and that they cannot tell me if they will ever be,
I asked them what to do when you have a broken Keyboard and they replied that you should then send them the Notebook and they will fix the Keyboard for you.
Strange. Never seen such statements before from any other Hardware vendor. I would understand the Statement maybe for a Motherboard btu not for a Keyboard that can be replaced within 2 mins.
Does anyone have any idea where such a Keyboard may be purchased or how to get it from Lenovo without sending the Notebook?
