    Install the menagement software. It can be found on dells drivers site.

    Bremenpl.

    Went to dell driver site as u stated. Didn't find anything called software management.
    Found system management, where there were two intel fixes (for me) relating to graphics & touchpad.
    Can u specify what driver I need from dell to fix my backlit problem.

    Thanks.
    TC.

    If the keyboard is like that of the M6700, it should be Fn + right arrow and that's it (backlight turns off pretty quick when you stop using it though, but no driver required). Do you have the icon for the backlight on the right arrow? If it's not there, it's possible that they shipped with the non backlit keyboard.

    Actually hes right it shuld work without the driver. The driver only gives you the on screen look of backlit level etc.
    Maybe you have no backlit?
