Lenovo T540p Intel i7 4800mq 2.7Ghz

2018-08-02, 4:38 AM

Hi, I recently purchased aused  Lenovo T540p Intel i7 4800mq 2.7Ghz, and I noticed it didnt have a keyboard backlight.

I also noticed on the net, that you can purchase backlit keyboards for this model.

If I purchase one of the backlit keyboards, will it work on my model?

yes.  Any T540p keyboard will work - with or without backlight

Sorry, I didnt explain my question properly.

As my laptop doesnt have backlit keyboard, If I get a backlit keyboard will I be able to get the backlight to work on my laptop?

As per RichK's comment 

If you purchase a T540p compatible backlit keyboard and install it, it will work. There is an additional connector next to the Keyboard connector on the motherboard (All T540p Models have this) if you connect the second cable on a bakclit keyboard to this, it will have backilighting (See example below)
