I have a Dell Vostro 3450 laptop, which supports backlit keyboards. My laptop was bought with a simple, non-backlit keyboard. If I buy a backlit replacement keyboard, will it work right away, or is such upgrade difficult/not possible?

Thanks in advance.

The backlit replacement keyboard is an optional component to the Dell Vostro 3450 laptop. It will work right away.

To use the backlit feature, press FN +

You may need to install or update to the latest QuickSet application from Dell to have windows properly recognize the hardware.
