Has my T430s backlit keyboard????

2014-10-29, 17:40 PM

Hi! I have just bought a second hand T430s thinkpad to replace my old T61.

 

I get it without HDD so, I've put the SSD of my T61 (with W7 installed). When I press fn+space it only lights thinklight, like in my old T61.

 

But, Is it possible my T430s had backlit keyboard bad the drivers are bad?

 

Product ID:
2356A35
Model:
2356

 

 

Thanks

You can get a detailed inventory of the hardware provided with your laptop at Lenovo Parts Lookup database.  Just type your MTM (what you call product ID on your post) and serial number here.  Please, do not post the serial number on this forum!

 

There is a chance your hardware has been modified, as you note it is a second hand computer.

 

A quick method to identify the keyboard is looking at the "light icon" on the space bar; if it emits light upside then you have a backlit keyboard, if it emits light downside it does not have this device.

 

Another method is going into the BIOS setup.  If you have a backlit keyboard you can decide if you want to turn on the ThinkLight, keyboard backlit or both here.  You will not see any "keyboard backlit" option on the BIOS setup menu if you have the non-backlit flavour.
