Re: Backlit keyboard x240

Hello and welcome to the Community

Factory configuration of this laptop features a keyboard backlight. The space bar should have small flash icon.

Re: Backlit keyboard x240

Hello 

 

I have a Lenovo x240 20AMS1BG00 with the backlit keyboard feature.

 

When Windows 10 was released, the computer updated automatically, afterwards the backlit keyboard feature wouldn't work. I haven't been using the laptop until now, and therefor i would like to get this function to work. 

 

I have installed all of the Lenovo drivers via Lenovo Vantage, and i've clicked FN+space MANY times in hopes of getting my backlit keyboard feature to work again. I simply don't know what to do. 

 

Do you have any advice for me? 

 

Thank you.

Has the spacebar a flashlight icon at the left side?

If the keyboard, its cable, connector on the systemboard etc. aren't broken, the backlight feature should work even in the BIOS Setup environment, i.e.it's drivers, OS independent.

Hello again, and thank you for the quick answer. 

 

The keyboard's backlit feature has worked before, but stopped when the computer updated to windows 10. The computer has the flash icon on the left side of the spacebar indeed.

Re: Backlit keyboard x240

Nevertheless, the backlight feature is software independent. The only assumptions are something is broken (have a look above) or BIOS is outdated (Windows 10 support has been added in BIOS v.2.31)
