Dell :: E4300 How Do I Turn On The Backlit Keyboard?


Some of these may seem rudimentary, please bear with me..

1. What does the button to the left of the Power button do? Nothing happens when I press it.

2. How do I turn on the backlit keyboard?

3. I'm did a clean Windows 7 install. What drivers do I need for the mousepad scrolling-shortcuts to work? No "trackpad" drivers are listed on Dell's drivers page.

4. What do the battery icons on F2 and F3 mean

Dell :: E4300 Keyboard
I just received my E4300 from the Dell outlet, it's in great condition with one exception.

The keyboard has a bulge or slight rise in the center. I have the back-lit keyboard.

Dell :: Keyboard With A Backlit One
I got a Dell Studio 1737 through the Dell Outlet, and after a little while the Num Lock light stopped working. The button still turns it on and off, and I've been debating calling and having to deal with them to get a replacement. Another option I've been thinking about is replacing it outright with the backlit keyboard.

My question is this. What will doing this outside of Dell do to the warranty? The Caps Lock light does still come on, so I'm thinking it's an issue with the light, and if I have to replace it, I might as well go with the better one.

Dell :: Where To Get A Backlit Keyboard For An M4400?
I recently bought an M4400 from the Dell Outlet. Unfortunately, the one that had everything else I wanted didn't have the backlit keyboard.

From looking at the service manual, it looks like a keyboard swap is pretty easy, but I can't find anywhere (including Dell Parts) to buy the actual keyboard (whose part numbers appear to be either G077C or 330-0825, depending on where you look).

Dell :: Backlit Keyboard And Antiglare?
Why are these two features so rarely available together??

All I have found is the teeny Vostro 3300, and expensive Latitude models. Why no middleground for 14/15/16/17 inch screen machines?

Am I being too picky....? Probably. But seems daft where you are able to customise just about every other feature.

Apple :: MBP - Backlit Keyboard
It is my understanding that all MBP's now have the backlit keyboard, even the base config 2.26 GHZ 13" Unibody. Is this indeed so?

My BIL has taken a liking to the backlit keyboard on my 2.4ghz MB Unibody, and wants to buy a similar machine. I told him that the base unibody system didn't used to come backlit, but now they apparently do (at least from what is written on the Apple website).

Dell :: Bending E6500 Backlit Keyboard
I just got my e6500 4 days ago and I notice that the center segment of the backlit keyboard is slightly bent out.

According to the e6500 review in notebookreview, the reviewer also found such problem.

I don't konw if it a defect or it happens to all the e6500 laptop out there. Please me know.

To me, it is very annoying because my other e6500 non-backlit keyboard just lay on to the laptop perfectly.

Acer In Khi :: 8935G Backlit Keyboard
I've just purchased a brand new acer 8935G and I just want to say what a mistake that was so far.I received delivery last Wednesday but the windows 7 upgrade disc was missing,it took me 2 days and loads of calls and emails to get it sent out.It arrived Friday so I unpacked computer and then noticed the back lit keyboard wasn't working. Contacted retailer they said I had to contact acer technical and get a returns number before they could do anything .

So I emailed Acer on Friday and explained as I was about to load windows 7 upgrade onto the computer but on checking it out I noticed the back lit keyboard wasn't working . Got an email back Monday totally unrelated to my question stating as it was a software problem and I had to contact a premium rate number .50 p a minute yeh right

So this morning I tried and tried to get trough to the customer services technical hardware) help line finally got through at .10p a minute and what a carry on. Don,t forget this is a brand new unused 8935G just unpacked . I had to go through about 20 mins of questions with a male who I couldn't understand a word of what he was saying and he definatly couldn't understand me .

In the end I asked for the ref no and he tried & tried to get me to return it for repair he said a week at least! stuff that

So I got back on to the retailer(simplyacer.com) customer services sixth in the cue and waited & waited ,eventually got through and was told ,the returns department would call back within the next 10 mins and they would arrange collection today (11am)

At 3pm still no call ,so I emailed them twice I received a read reply , but no answer and no reply to my question . Back on the phone again and 8th in line ,so I hung up
At 4pm receive a call from the returns department,He asked what the problem was and when I told him he replied Oh I didn't realise the 8935g key board was back lit . I lost it a little I'm afraid, told him to get it sorted I want a new computer not a repaired one . Their collecting tomorrow but I'm not sure what the outcome will be . Am I being unfair on insisting on a new computer with the service I've received so far? or should I insist on a full refund and go somewhere else and buy a different model and tell them to stuff it.

Sony :: Vaio F Backlit Keyboard
I have just bought a Vaio VPCF117HG (top of the line) here in Singapore and the advertising said it had a backlit keyboard.

I get it home and discover to my horror there is no backlit keyboard. This is on certain overseas models only. I would not have purchased this if I knew.

So, my next question is would it be possible to source one and replace the current one on my computer. There's the question of powering it and connecting it to the light sensor that would switch it on and off.

This is really for a tech but surely there would be someone out there who would know whether this is possible or not.

HP/Compaq :: Add Backlit Keyboard To Dv3t
Is it possible to add this feature (safely) after purchase? I'm not optimistic but I thought it would be worth asking, it's the one feature I think I would have changed when I ordered (had it for a little while, don't want to go through the return process [even if they would let me at this point] just for this).

HP/Compaq :: HDX 16 Backlit Keyboard Upgrade
I bought an HDX 16 1354CA here in Canada from Futureshop which, for those of you in the US, is much like Best Buy. Now, as some of you may be aware, there is no option for a backlit keyboard for this model of laptop.

As much as I love it, I can't help but be a little jealous of my girlfriend's Macbook Pro where her's has a spiffy backlit keyboard. Furthermore, the keyboard included in my laptop is the Canadian layout, which is absolute garbage. There's two of the same backward slash keys on either side of the keyboard, making the left shift the same size as the control key and enter takes up two lines. Not to mention the french accents and translations all over the place.

So, basically what I'm getting at is that I was fed up with this keyboard, and would have really like to somehow upgrade the keyboard on this laptop I paid a stupid amount for. I contacted HP support through their chat feature, and they said that it was not available as an upgrade option. Frusterated, I turned to the only place I knew would fix everything in life: Ebay.

I found myself a perfect backlit keyboard by a ebay seller called Yallstore. 22 american dollars and 6 days later, I got exactly what I wanted. I have it installed and much as I expected, it was one of those things that I didn't really realize was great until I actually had it. WOW, is it ever cool. I'm glad I bought it, and it makes the laptop that much better to use.

Dell :: Installing A Backlit Keyboard To Your Studio 1535-1537?
If you're like me, and you bought your Studio 1535, 1536, or 1537 with the standard keyboard and now wish you had the backlit model,

it's an excellent time to buy the keyboard on your own and install it yourself. It's an extremely simple process, involving no more than 4 Philips head screws, three ribbon cables, and ten minutes of your life.

Resaleremarking.net, an excellent parts retailer for Dell notebooks, has the backlit keyboard available for $37.95, which is an excellent price, especially considering it's Grade A, which is brand new. For reference, I bought mine for $50 just a couple months ago.

The part is now cheaper than ever, so what do you have to lose? Replacing the keyboard does not void your warranty with Dell, and is one of the easiest hardware replacements you can make on this laptop.

Dell :: Vostro 2510 Backlit Keyboard And Battery Life
I believe I have narrowed down my laptop purchase to the Vostro 2510. I would really like a backlit keyboard, but I have been receiving mixed messages as to whether or not the 2510 includes that option.

Since it's not mentioned anywhere on the Dell website, I am assuming the worst. I saw this website saying otherwise: http://www.geekwithlaptop.com/dell-vostro-2510-laptop (bottom of the page under "built in extras").

Can someone please clarify? If it does come with the 2510, it must be standard since it is not an option while customizing. Why would they not offer this on all of their models?
