Re: Inspiron 17r se 7720. backlit keyboard

I also was disappointed not to get the backlit keyboard I thought came as standard.  When I called Dell support they told me it was an option, but I was very careful to check all options on ordering and there was no option to select one.

On further questioning, I'd apparently picked from one of the fast delivery models (which I assume are pre-built) and needed to go through the full configurator.  Despite spending several hours on the Dell site, I never saw this option.

Anyway, as a result, I too would like to buy a UK backlit keyboard for the 7720.  Can you send me the link too please Prateek?

Thanks.

i suspect you will find like the rest of us that the very poor marketing from dell has made you think you were getting a back lit keyboard when you were not, you will have to contact dell sales and buy one.

Re: Inspiron 17r se 7720. backlit keyboard

Although you may get a good price from DELL to upgrade if you purchased the system from them and didn't get an outlet system.

I bought an outlet system so would have had to pay full price £69 from dell, I think I'd have to get them to fit it for me too ( or warranty would be shot ) not sure as when they said £69, i said that's more than 10% of what i paid for the outlet system !!

I'm guessing if it wasn't an out let system you may be cut a deal via a private message from one of their reps.

Best of luck emoticon.Wink.title

Re: Inspiron 17r se 7720. backlit keyboard

Hi nmos,

Dell Inspiron 17r se 7720 by default is shipped with a Chiclet style backlit keyboard. Press Fn + F6 once to turn on the keyboard back light. Press Fn + F6 second time to decrease the brightness of the keyboard back light and pressing Fn + F6 for the third time turns off the keyboard back light. Do let me know if you have different Dell model.

What Vince said, the 17r se 7720 does NOT ship with a backlit keyboard by default.  It's an option.  However I was never given the option to specify it when I ordered mine and when I called to complain, was told that I had apparently selected a fast deliver pre-built model, and I should have used the full configurator.  Even knowing this, going back to the website, I couldn't work out how to order one with a backlit keyboard.

Is it possible to connect backlit keyboard to non-backlit Dell 17R SE?
