Hi I just recently purchased a 17r 2nd gen and I love
the performance and style but I just wish it had a backlit keyboard, knowing it
was not in the customization features I was wondering if I could purchase a XPS
17 (L702X) and replace my default keyboard. I just know if the motherboard has
the same connection and if the LED’s would work. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.
To the Original Poster. Have you removed your keyboard to see if there is an open Ziff socket to power the backlit keyboard from the XPS?
Backlit keyboard is optional on 17 inch Vostro 3750.
Mine came w/o but I added backlit KB later (luckily my main board has KB power socket).
I found the site that supplies the backlit KB. Says that it's compatible with the Inspiron N7110. I have the exact model. Thinking of ordering it.
