T580 keyboard - change to back lit?

Q: T580 keyboard - change to back lit?

Hi, just got the T580 but kicking myself that I did not get the back lit keyboard. What do you guys think - does it make much difference? Is it the same feel as the normal keyboard? Is it possible to swap out? If so where is the best place to get the part? Thanks.

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.

I know that the only built in color is red, but I was wondering if it would be possible to maybe replace the lights under the keyboard with multi-colored ones?  I don't want to open up my laptop untill I know for sure that I can do this.

The keyboard and backlit are one whole unit. Unless some company makes a keyboard replacement for the Y50 with a different color, I don't think you can.

This is a stupid but frustrating problem! I have a Gateway Millenium keyboard. Up until a few days ago, all was well, but suddenly, the decimal point key in the number pad is remapped to run the function "default email application" (like the hotkey button at the top of the keyboard. I rely on this numpad a lot, so I really need to remap this. I'm guessing there is a layout in the registry??

What I've tried...
Using the Millenium keyboard function mapping (only allows you to remap the special keys at the top)
Uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard (no new driver available)

Any help????

I have a DELL Insprion 2400 with Windows XP Office Edition insalled (I know its so old lol). So I was fooling around, trying to make the Japanese carhters show on my computer and messed around and changed the keyboard layout to Japanese from English. I restarted the computer when I tired to enter my password on the Welcome logon screen it wouldn't accept it. I don't have the windows software CD to try to do a system restore and I'm not sure if you can even do a system rstore if you can't logon. I've tried just about everything that I could think of and nothing has worked. At this point I dont care if I losse everything on the computer I just need it to work. Could someone please help me or at least point me in the right direction to get this issue solved. How can I fix this???

Trying to set up a FP monitor, and in the process I tried changing the bios setting from onboard AGP (flat panel wasn't working with this, had to add another video adapter card) to PCI, thinking I could change it back if ineffective. But now my display on the monitor that WAS working is black, so I can't undo my mistake.

How to undo damage??
Thanks.
 

A:bios change, now can't view monitor to change back

If you remove the battery on the mothernoard
for a minute or two, the BIOS loses it's
current settings and goes back to the defaults
that will work on any system. You'll have to
let it auto-detect hard drives and everything.

Out of the blue the following keys stopped working: GHBackspaceWindows [email protected]' The laptop is a couple of years old and a bit dusty, so I took it to the local shop to get the keyboard replaced and cleaned. Seemed to be working fine when I left the shop.

Five minutes later they started working again but ctrl stopped and N is temperamental. I haven't spilt anything on it or knocked it. Any ideas what's going on?

I am looking at buying the 15-bn070wm laptop that walmart carries with the realtree design. The laptop does not come with a backlit keyboard and I was curious if there is a way that I could purchase a ugraded backlit keyboard and install it I know some models have the backlight connector under the keyboard but they just do not come with them installed? If so what model keyboard should I purchase and would the laptop follow the HP pavilion 15 series disassembly steps?

A:X0S19UA-Change keyboard to backlit keyboard

Hi, It is much better and cheaper to buy this option now because backlit keyboard alone won't work, you need a motherboard which have ports for you to connect those lights. Buy this option now may cost you say $50, replace it later may cost you ten times or more and in many cases not-workable. Regards.

I'm not familiar with this type of router but it seams like you need to do a factory reset. Then return you router to your normal settings afterwards.
You can probably do this by getting a pin and poking it in the hole on the back of your router near the 'Reset to Factory Settings' text (or something to that extent).

HP computer running Vista Home Premium up to date with a HP w1858 LCD monitor.

I wanted to set the screen display to make the text larger. Ended up in the DPI scaling screen. Set it to custom size 144 dpi or 150 percent of normal. Which gives me a nice size font on desktop, control panel and most web pages.

Only problem is some screens do not show the entire screen ie on doing some software installs the accept icon does not show on the bottom and I cannot get the screen to scroll down to click on accept.

Same deal now on control panel when I go to the DPI scaling to set the DPI back to normal or even set the custom DPI back to say 90 I can make the change on the screen but cannot get the screen to scroll down so I can click on apply icon to make the change on next boot.

Any help appreciated. Is there anyway I can just get the monitor to go back to basis settings before I started messing around with DPI stuff ?
 

A:changed DPI and now cannot change it back

Duh, I fixed the problem by restoring to a earlier version of vista. Should have thought a bit more before posting.

If you had a backup you could restore from it.

You could do a repair install.

You could use a recovery program like recuva to attempt to recover the lost data.

A:Change back up from floppy to cd

Welcome to TSF!

Depends on what backup program you are using. Windows backup can't burn to CD. If you use the Wizard, the location will always default to the Floppy drive if you have one. The list is alphabetical.

If you set it to use the Advanced mode, the location should be the last one used.

Yep, system restore would have saved your bacon if you had created a restore point before doing that.

You might see if starting over using the tutorial below may be able to help you fix your user account by changing everything back to what it was originally.User Profile Folder - Change User Account Folder Name
If not, then you might see if you may be able to create a new administrator account to use instead, and copy what you want from the old account.

I have an hp touchsmart tx2 laptop with an ATI Radeon HD3200 graphics card. I recently reformatted and reinstalled vista. Since the reformat, however, the resolution has not been the same. I'm not entirely positive that my resolution was 1280x960, but I think it was. I am absolutely sure that it was a 4x3 ratio, and anything less than 1280 seems horribly fuzzy and large. But the highest resolution I can reach now is 1280x800. I've tried getting the most recent drivers from ATI and every windows update. Nothing seems to help. I've also noticed that if I go into the options in ATI's Catalyst Control Center, changing the scaling options from "full screen" to "preserve aspect ratio" doesn't do anything. The screen flickers for a few seconds, but doesn't change at all. Does anybody know of a way to get my resolution back to 1280x960? Any help I could get would be greatly appreciated.

Just want to make sure there is not any limitation and that I can upgrade later on to at least 16GB. 2)I already have a Samsung SSD - SATA III 2.5 inch. Since this model has a 2.5 drive I assume I can replace it with mine. But am I limiting myself in anyway for future updates if I don't get one of the NVME drives now? 3) I would possibly like to get the WWAN card later on. Is it possible to buy and add one later on?  4) Will this computer run dual 4k external monitors, should I ever get them?  Since money is very tight, my only priority right now would be to get the stuff I cannot add later on (3840 x 2160 screen, possibly graphics card but would have to bump up to 8350u).  Thanks!

I'm thinking of buying a T580. The teardown videos show a card type M.2 solid state drive in place. Will my 2.5" Samsung 850 Pro 2TB SSD fit? Will I need any adapters?

I upgraded ti windows 10 from 7 home premium and do not like it.  This pc is old and I will have to replace it very soon so for the short time I have left to use it I would prefer to just keep it on Windows 7 home premium.  I tried it myself but it seems like only part of Win 10 reverted back cause I ha ve some Win 10 & some Win 7.  Pc is laptop g7 with wireless internet
