Re: X230 Backlight keyboard not working anymore

The keyboard backlight does not depend on the operating system.  It will work if you just boot into the BIOS.  I cannot be sure without seeing the machine, but I have seen backlight keyboards have the backlight fail (actually, the turn-on circuitry).  Unless it is turned off in the BIOS, my guess is that the problem is the keyboard, which is more likely to fail than the circuitry on the motherboard.  Motherboard and keyboard are the only parts involved.
