Re: Add backlit keyboard to Latitude 5580

Hi Alasdair:

Thank you so much for your super prompt response.

I have another question for you. 

My unit came with a M.2 SSD. I understand that this unit also has a slot for a standard hard drive. Can I install another hard drive on that slot and both can co-exist? Hard Drive C and D?

Thanks!

Hi Everret,

I'm afraid not. The 5590 only supports one drive, the M.2 occupies part of the space where the HDD would fit.

Thanks.

Alan,

We placed an order through our Account manager shortly after I posted my question.  The replacement keyboards were fairly easy and quick to install.  So I can confirm that on the 5580 laptops it's definitely possible.

Alex,

Can you confirm (for 5580) which part number you ordered.  And, what vendor(s) have them?

Thanks,
Bob...

@Grook the part number you require for the 106 key backlit keyboard in Russian is 21MM4.

I hope this helps.

Thank you, Alan!

 

This helped me indeed.

Could you please also clarify if Latitude E5570 and 5580 both come with identical backlit keyboards with Dell P/N 21M44?

@Grook I can confirm that the keyboard p/n 21M44 is the same for the E5570 and 5580 systems.
