Inspiron 7559 how to change keyboard backlight colour

so recently I've seen people with a similar laptop to this and having a different keyboard colour. Has the exact same look and design as mine. And I wanted to know how to change it. I've tried fn+ right arrow key and fn + c but nothing happens. I'm tired of the plain white and wanted to know how to change it or even possibly customize the keyboard to add multi-coloured backlights. Apparently the Inspiron 5000 series is meant to be able to change the colour of the backlights but I have yet to figure it out.

Re: Inspiron 7559 how to change keyboard backlight colour

With the current models (yours is a couple of cycles old) there are options for keyboard colors -- with yours, there is not.  You'd have to find out if it's possible to fit a keyboard from a newer system (and even if it is, there's no guarantee the mainboard will support the color change, since your system never shipped with that option).

hmm ok so what models do have this option? Don't want to waste money on something that might not even work

I found this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cf4XAvCSTcU and was wondering if you knew how to do this as they never specified in the description or comments

Looks like someone wired an LED ribbon under the keyboard.
