Mod sony vaio laptop keyboard?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a sony vaio fw series laptop from 2009, but I want to add LED's like the newer models have. I was thinking that maybe it would be as simple as replacing my current keyboard with the keyboard from newer versions...or maybe I have to install some el wire or something. can someone lead me in the right direction?

You would have to get a backlit keyboard for your model of laptop. If it wasn't an original option on your laptop then you won't be able to.

The keyboards may look the same, but usually you will have the screw holes in different places etc.

Not much modding you can do with a laptop, they are very specifically engineered.
