My girl friend bought a new Inspiration as described above on the subject line. She is asking me how to turn on the backlit keyboard. So I'm asking here. Is it even possible? I should think that all modern laptop computers should have this feature. Does any one know?
Thank you for writing to Dell Community Forum.
Please mention the model of the Inspiron 15, 3000 series.
You can also click my DELL-username and send me a Private Message with the Dell Service Tag number and your email address, so that we can confirm if this is supported by your system configuration.
Note: please don't mention the service tag or email id on the public forum as it contains your personal information
If you don't see the keyboard backlight turn on when the system is first powered on, the keyboard is not backlit. No, not all notebooks have backlit keyboards - it is true that many mid-range and most high-end notebooks do -- but that's not what this model is. The 3000 series is a budget model entry-level system - thought some of the models do offer a backlit option, the basic models do not.
