hi waichihang,


Your problem might be similar to this thread.


You can easily spot a keyboard with a backiit feature if there's a "crown" like logo on the space bar and if the keyboard lights up on boot-up. You can also manually toggle the keyboard backlights by pressing Fn+Space.

If you don't see this "crown" like logo on the space bar and neither the keyboard lights up on boot-up then the model that you received doesn't have a backlight keyboard.


In addition, for the backlit to work, the following must be met:

1. Compatible backlit-type keyboard must be used.


2. The motherboard must have a keyboard power connector to power up the backlight.

If one of the above is missing / not present, the backlit feature will not work.



Let me know how it looks like on your machine..
