00pa288 vs. 00pa370 Backlit Keyboards for P50, etc.

2018-11-09, 18:04 PM

I imagine this may help a lot of folks that ended up with a laptop and a non-lit keyboard.... These 2 model numbers are for a backlit keyboard for my P50 which is of the 20EN variety. I am reading that there may be a difference between these 2 models as they have different length and position of mounting posts. Anyone have a clue about this?

Thanks

G

Both FRU are identical, applicable to P50, differ just by manufacturer:
00PA288 - Chicony Electronics
00PA370 - Darfon Electronics

So let me refine the question. Based on a "build"(mine is a 20ENCTO1WW BTW), is there different layouts for the mounting posts for different builds or will the 2 different mfg's 288/370 work on every P50 ever built? I am seeing different things as I search the web.

Thanks

G

Let me repeat my statement in the post above - FRUs are identical, applicable to ANY P50 model.

The codes mean different keyboard p/ns - for assembly and manufacturer's one, respectively. They don't matter, FRU defines everything.
