Recently purchased a x51 desktop which came with windows 7.
Also in the package was a SK-8165 Alienware keyboard and Optical Mouse.
The problem - is my keyboard supposed to be backlit?
'Cause when i saw it on display it WAS backlit but somehow the one i just bought doesn't light up at all.
I spent hours searching for a fix online but to no avail. My AlienFX editor theme profile also only recognises the chassis and nothing else (even though i have the Alienware keyboard and mouse plugged in -_-)
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
No, the SK-8165 is not back-lit. It's the "standard" USB keyboard these days. I think it also comes with other Dells (I think like XPS models) but those say "Dell" on it instead of "Alienware".
