Answer:Is the a backlit keyboard for an Acer Aspire E5-77...

There is, however, I highly doubt a standard user would ever want to do this. And you will 100% break your warranty, and quite possibly break your computer trying to replace it. It is your own responcibility if you do it. It is not user friendly to implement. But if you really want to risk everything, you can find the part online, but your risk. If you want, you can wait for a ACE member to answer your question.

I just purchased an Acer Aspire E5-575 Laptop (i5 6200 CPU, 2.60GHz, 8Gb RAM.  The backlit keyboard switches off in just a few seconds.  It switches on after touching any key or toggles with <Fn> <F9>.  In complete darkness or in sunlight the backlight behaves the same (no ambient light sensing).  How can the keyboard be made to remain backlit?

Hi,There's no settings available for Backlit keyboard, you have to live with it as it's disigned to preserve the battery power, I guess.

Both are created using Rufus software.I already set the boot order to 1) USB HDD 2) USB FDD etc. I set UEFI and secured. Both bootable USB's dont work. So i set it to "Legacy and not secured", the first USB works but can't continue to Setup Page. Windows 8.1 logo displays, but after few seconds, it will go to blank sreen.

Hi everyone, my laptop is 2 years old. I have been playing with it for the last two years for wxtended amount of time and i have no problem with it whatsoever until like last week. It just suddenly shut off randomly. I noticed that the fan is not working anymore, and because my warranty is already expired, idecided to remedy it on my own with the help of some youtube videos. As i have suspected the fan was really dirty, but i was able to clean it. After i assembled it again, i was able to use it (play heavy games) for a day with only about one shut off. I thought i have somewhat resolved the problem but after this it came back to its problem again. I opened up the laptop again and even lubricated the fan bearings but to ni avail did it solve the problem. I also noticed that the fan is barely working. I then decided to turn it on without the cover to observe the fan. I turned on the laptop, anc then the fan spinned for several seconds and then it died, it spinned again, then it died. Now i am getting worried because im thinking that this not a fan-only problem. I also noticed that the thermal paste was "hard", i presume that the consistency of it shouls be close to a gel than hardened glue right? What do you think guys? Thank you in advance

If it worked before, it's a driver problem. Have the 8.1 driver availiable and uninstall the current driver and delete the software in Device Manager. Cleaning out the other drivers can stop you from having any driver conflicts. Reboot and reinstall the driver.

Hi, I bought an earlier R13 (Haswell i5, FHD screen) on sale. Thankfully, with the BIOS update the keyboard typing experience, while not perfect, is more than manageable for me so far. My two issues: 1) Upon setting up, I selected a darker color for the Windows menu background. When I switched to this, I notced a wide, fuzzy rectangular box-shaped area around the inside of the screen that was somewhat lighter in color, and two of the buttons on the screen left a ghost image within this shape while the system continued with setup. Worried about the ghosting issue noted elsewhere in this forum, I tried an image retention test found online and sure enough the checkerboard image stayed visible on the edges of the screen when I switched to grey. It returned to normal operations swiftly after that.  2) I have also experienced the high-pitched whine with the backlit keyboard on maximum. This is not audible on the lower setting or when it's off. It's very quiet, but nonetheless it's still there. Is this a common problem? Are there people out there who HAVE this issue but are okay with it? Given that the device is practically silent otherwise (that fan is darn near whisper level when it IS on), it's a minor but nonetheless present annoyance. I can still return this unit - *should* I, and what's likely to happen if I don't?I'm in the middle of evaluating the machine to see if it fits my needs.

 I have a Lenovo Flex 2-15 that doesn't have a backlit keyboard. I know that the keybord can be taken off, so can the non-backlit keyboard be replaced by a backlit version. I would have thought it would be possible as someone could request a backlit keyboard part for their laptop maybe? Would the process void the warranty and where can I buy the backlit keyboard replacement?

Hi, I have a new Elitebook 820 G3 which I am surprised came without backlit keyboard which I thought is standard on this model. Can I upgrade it now or is there some extra chip missing and it will never work? Is it just keyboard that needs to be replaced? I know there is an extra connector for backlit and I am not sure if my laptop has it build in (the connector). Thank you very much in advance for any help/suggestions. Regards, Radek

I have the X230 Tablet, without the backlit keyboard. Has anyone had sucess in retrofitting the backlit keyboard to a nonbacklit model?  If the answer is no, can anyone with a backlit model and the i5 processor provide me with a model number? I am going to try flash the bios with a backlit model and see if it works.   Lenovo reps say that it isn't possible and that a backlit option needs to be specified in a factory order. I have my doubts. They people have a script to "troubleshoot, "I can't imagine that there is any money to be saved in having two assembly lines, or a branch in assembly line with for this option.  For the extra costs in two assembly lines, it is cheaper to solve the issue with code. They are LED lights, so it doesn't require a special high voltage power supply.

I just got a T470. Excellent computer! I got the Core i7-7600U model with 4gb of memory and a 500gb non-SSD hard disk (T470 20HDCTO1WW, ordered directly from Lenovo). The 2TB SSD and 32GB RAM I got from Crucial work without problem (yes, I ran a memory tester) ? although, yes, it?s a moderate pain to take off the back panel (even if you have a special plastic tool for doing so). It?s a really great laptop; I like how clear and bright the display is as well as how fast it runs. That said, on to my question: I got the model with the non-backlit keyboard. Is is possible to upgrade this model to have a backlit keyboard? Here is the information I have gotten from my research: * The dealers selling T470 backlit keyboards warn that it may not be possible to get the backlight to work if the motherboard does not support it (for example, https://www.amazon.com/ThinkPad-01AX569-SN20L72890-Backlit-Keyboard/dp/B0727S1H14/ where they claim ?Please check whether your laptop can support backlit keyboard or not before placing the order, if can not, the backlit function of our keyboard will not work!? or https://www.amazon.com/CHNASAWE-Replacement-Backlit-Keyboard-Thinkpad/dp/B071KWWW21/ with a similar ?If your original/old keyboard does not have the backlit, this keyboard backlit will not work.? warning) * There is nothing in Lenovo?s T470 service manual at https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/pubs/t470/html_en/index_en.html#Replacing_t...

Answer:Can I Upgrade a T430 Keyboard from non-backlit to backlit?

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Yes. You can interchange your non-backlit keyboard with the backlit version of the keyboard in your Lenovo ThinkPad T430. Backlit and Non-backlit version uses the same connector, therefore they can be interchanged without any problem.
 
Refer this document and choose the FRU number in your preferred language format.
 
Hope this helps!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

Answer:Can I replace my non backlit keyboard with a backlit keyboar...

OK here is the Service Manual: Manual The keyboards are not sold by HP as a separate part: only sold with the whole top cover. See p. 20 The Manual does not list any keyboard/top cover as having a backlight. However, the keyboard map on p. 15 shows the f5 action key as activating a backlight on "select models".  From this I gather that there is a place on the motherboard to connect a backlight cable if the keyboard has one. However, extracting the old keyboard from the top cover and replacing it with just the replacement keyboard is not easy and there are no directions in the Manual for that procedure. I would want to see one of these alleged backlit keyboards. Bottom line, it is possible, but I would be leery. Do you have an f5 action key with the backlight symbol on it? Have you tried it to see if maybe your keyboard is backlit? If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I have an Acer E5-471G Notebook, a few days ago I was formatting my PC to Windows 10, during installation, it reached 83% and then it suddenly turned of (the charger is plugged in). and then it won't turn on anymore, i did tried to drain the electricity by holding power for 30+ seconds, twice, but still nothing happend and after a few days it turned back on, and I proceed to my format, again. and then after i finished the installation, it happened again, but this time, the PC heats up every time i plug the battery/AC and press the power button Any help would do, thanks!  

Answer:Acer E5-471G won't turn on

Hi memo22 Acer state that the E5-471G is compatible with Windows 10, but not the November update! So there are two possible scenarios here: 1. Your laptop is not compatible (at least at the moment). This may change depending on what Microsoft applies to the next update 2. It's not neccessarily a Windows 10 problem. You could try to revert back to Windows 8.1 & use it for a few days. If no problems occur, then it will be incompatability with Windows 10. If the same problem occurs, then it won't be an OS problem - it will be an issue with your laptop. It's not an easy one to solve, I'm afraid. It's a case of trial & error. Let us know how you get on!
