A485 Backlit Keyboard

2020-04-15, 4:52 AM

Did anyone ever get one of the backlit keyboards from the parts list to work? 01HX459 was on the list, I bought it, couldn't get it to work, and neither could the service center Lenovo pointed me at.



Figured since Lenovo has abandoned this with no temperature fix (70c thermal STRANGULATION threshold, yet they fixed that on the E485 bumping it to 85c WHERE IT SHOULD BE), and no AGESA/Modules update for the BIOS since November, might as well put a backlit keyboard and sell it since it aint worth a **bleep** to me or my company otherwise!
