E6410 keyboard backlight mystery!

  • I have just received a new E6410 laptop from work and was told it had a keyboard backlight. How do I find out if my computer has, and if it has how do I turn it on? (I found on one discussion forum "Fn- right arrow" but this results in nothing!
    Thanks.
  • You may want to ask on the Dell Community Site: www.en.community.dell.com, they have areas specific to laptops. On my 6410 FN+right arrow controls the backlight keyboard. You may also have to have something turned on in the bios.
  • Look at your keyboard, If the right arrow has a symbol that looks like a key with light rays coming out of it.. it is a backlit keyboard. It is the same symbol on Dell inspiron keyboards etc. Pretty easy way to tell.
  • the right arrow key does not have the light rays as mentioned...so the laptop is not having the backlight?...the model is latitude e6410
