I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

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

A:Can I Replace a Keyboard(Non-Backlit) with Backlit Keyboard ...

If your computer is a "desktop" computer, it should be a "no-brainer".The USB port on your computer would supply power to the keyboard to run the back-lights. But, since you have a notebook, you'll have to find a keyboard that physically matches the size of your current keyboard, and then hope that the notebook's motherboard will supply electrical power to the back-lights.This sounds like a tough task!  From:  http://www8.hp.com/h20195/v2/GetPDF.aspx/c04472797.pdf >>  Full-sized spill-resistant keyboard; optional back-lit keyboard keeps you productive in low-light settings lists that such an option is available, or maybe, was available when this model was first manufactured. From: http://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-c04551620-2.pdf Keyboard with backlight and pointing sick for use only on HP EliteBook 850 G2 Notebook PC and HP EliteBook 750 G2 Notebook PC computer models (includes backlight, keyboard, and pointing stick cables):       For use in Canada776475-DB1

Hello,  I changed the OS on my Envy 15-j007cl to Windows 7 (64bit).  I've gotten everything to work save two issues: 1)  It's missing one driver (Validity Fingerprint Sensor); USB\VID_138A&PID_0050&REV_0060.  I've downloaded the driver from links I've found here, but it still shows as missing.  The fingerprint reader still doesn't work, but I'm not sure if this OS supports the fingeprint reader.  Does anyone know if the fingerprint reader is supported with Win 7? 2)  The keyboard backlighting no longer works.  This is actually more of an issue to me than the fingerprint reader.  Can someone tell me if this is due to a missing driver or something else? Thank you

 Hi @gruhls, Welcome to the HP Forums! I read your post on the HP Support Forums and wanted to reach out to you. With downgrading your HP ENVY 15-j007cl Notebook you might need to change the BIOS. I recommend to restore the BIOS defaults.You could restore the BIOS with this document selecting the reloading the BIOS default settings. That way it will look at the Hardware installed on the Notebook. You could try the Download here, under the Software-Security, as it is for Windows 7 and should work fine. Please let me know if this information helps you resolve the issue by marking this post as Accept as Solution, this will help others easily find the information they may be looking for.  Also, clicking the Thumbs up below is a great way to say thanks!    Thanks.

A:backlit keyboard

No, sorry none of the keyboards offered in that model series is backlit which means the motherboard has no place to connect a wire to light a backlight and none of the keyboards has the backlight cable/wire in any event. There are quite a few ingenious aftermarket products that will provide a light on the keyboard for night work.

You hold the Function [Fn] key and tap the Spacebar once...that enables/disables it.  You can easily tell if it's a backlit keyboard because the spacebar will have a keyboard icon on the left hand side.

From what I have read Yoga 13 Silver does not have the slot required for backlit, but aside that, will the keyboard function and will it fit (dimension-wise)? If so, what is the voltage and current required? Would soldering a small battery to the backlit cable be a good idea (I accept the fact that I wouldn't be able to regulate it)? Thank you in advance!ck

Did you reload the drivers from Win7 into Win10 to see if the control function returns? If not then this would mean you can't use Win10 properly on your system and need to revert back to Windows 7.
