Good Morning

I need some advice to create backlit LED's for my laptop keyboard. Bit hard to type in the dark. It's for a Lenovo E530. I was thinking trying to install LED strips and make small little holes on the keys.

Have any of you done this before and how did you link it to the power?

It's is very unlikely the laptop will have space to put any LED strips in the keyboard area or a way to power them or run the power cables.

Get a small USB light you can clip to the screen, do a web search for USB Laptop Light, you will see quite a few things.
