    Hi,
    I want to share with all my work of replacing original keyboard without backlight with new one with backlight on my laptop.
    The mod is explained here:
    http://www.asinet.org/projects/acer-e5-575g-backlit-keyboard-mod/
    and if you have any questions, please ask.
    Try to see your motherboard for place for connecting backlight cable of keyboard.
    If you have it, you need to buy a keyboard with backlight (costs about 15-25EUR), solder only 4 parts and that's all.
    You can turn on/off by Fn+F9.

    Yes, originally this laptop does not come with backlit feature.
    When I broke my keyboard and start look up for new one, I was surprised that for this model there is in market a keyboard with backlight
    not much more expensive from a keyboard without backlight. Maybe the same model laptop but with different suffixes comes with backlit keyboard.
    The lucky moment was, when I found that on the mother board of laptop there is a place tor connecting backlight cable () and BIOS can manage the backlight. Of course you have to solder some components.
