Is it possible to put a backlit keyboard in a laptop that did not have

As the topic states I want to put a backlit keyboard in my HP DV4t-5100 and was wondering if it were possible. If anyone is familiar with any websites that have any information I would greatly appreciate it.

  1. I really doubt it. Almost all laptop keyboards are custom made for a specific model.
  2. HP didn't make a back lit keyboard for that model. And unfortunately they did not build into it the necessary power pieces to be able to swap a back lit keyboard from a diff/similar model. Sorry to be the one to give the bad news :(
  3. And if you happen to find one of the same dimensions, I can not put x.x?

    You can put it in. But it won't light up. The problem behind it is that where the keyboard connects to the MOBO does not have power to it that a back lit keyboard needs. Or else it would be as simple as doing just that.
