L540 - Keyboard and Screen Change

2016-07-17, 11:03 AM

I got myself one L540. I wish to change the keyboard since I desire a backlit keyboard. My current one is a plain preinstalled keyboard. I wish to buy it off ebay, they are available there with the model number of L540 with backlit option. Would this work? Other forum posts says it won't work so why is the symbol there?  Hopefully it works now maybe after some updates??

Also, I wish to change the preinstalled screen to a FHD one. I understand it is LCD so I will need to install a LCD. Would any 1080P LCD laptop screen off ebay work when installed?

Thanks a lot in advance.

I am also curious about this. What makes the backlit function work on some laptops but not the L540? The connectors appear to be identical!
