Thinkpad T450s ThinkLight not working after ssd change

Hi, my thinkpad's thinklight doesn't seem to be working after replacing the ssd and reinstalling windows. 
I have already used System Update and Lenovo Vantage to download the drivers, and even reinstalled the hotkey drivers but it doesn't seem to detect my thinklight. I was previously on a Lenovo Signature Edition before, but something messed up when I was cloning the drive so I just decided to reinstall Windows 10 Pro. I used to have three options when clicking Fn+Spacebar, (dim backlight, high backlight then thinklight) but now I only have the two backlight options. I also tried to use TPFanControl to enable the ThinkLight but it just triggers a 0 battery level warning making the computer shutdown unexpectedly. Any suggestions to get my ThinkLight back?

Re: Thinkpad T450s ThinkLight not working after ssd change

Hello and welcome,

 

I'm afraid this isn't going to be very helpful, but I can't find any mention of a ThinkLight in the user's guide or the base spec or PSREF page.  My T450s doesn't have a ThinkLight - and there's no room in the LCD surround for one.

 

Can you post a pic of the top of your display showing the ThinkLight?

Hi, I guess it was my fault lol
I was using my other T430s for a week and I think I got used to the three backlight levels.
Thanks!
