Thinkpad P51 - UK Backlit Keyboard



I have just purchased a P51 and it currently has a US keyboard. I'd like to change this to UK style, which I've found on the parts list.


My question is, does the P51 support backlit keyboard? If so, please could someone let me know the part number of UK Backlit Keyboard?


The model type is 20HH.


Thank you in advance.

Re: Thinkpad P51 - UK Backlit Keyboard

Thanks. I've bought 00PA317 and fitted it all ok, but pressing Fn + Space doesn't bring the backlight on. I've had a look in Lenovo Vantage and can't find any settings in there. Is there any utility or update that I need to be able to enable it?


Thanks in advance.


EDIT: Even though the ribbons appeared to be connected properly, I decided to re-seat them again. Fired the laptop back up and we have light! All good :-)
