Hello and welcome,

 

Just to double check, what's your MT-M?  There are a few T450s models (US I think) that don't have backlit keyboards.  One example:  20BX0015US

Hello, do you know where one can check if their model DOES have a backlit keyboard?

My machine's model is 20BXCTO1WW. I just recieved my machine and vaguely recall having a backlight keyboard. I've been trying to turn it on (using FN+Spacebar) but it never occurred to me that I may not have had that capability in the first place. Any information would be much appreciated... thanks!

Hi,

 

I suspect from the CTO in your MT-M that it was a configure-to-order machine.  Did you specify options at the time of order?  It doesn't show up in the MT-M search in SUPPORT above.

 

If it's a CTO machine you'll have to find the original order specs to determine the exact configuration.

Hey thanks for the reply guys but I realized I ordered one without a backlight. I assumed it came with one. Sorry for the confusion
