Hello guys, I have Acer Aspire v5 531g. My keyboard has no lights, but I often work at night time and want to have some better vision on keyboard. I found some keyboards on ebay/amazon with backlit, but will I be able to connect it ? Now my keyboard is connected with only one wire.

P.S. sorry for my english.
 
You can only use a backlit keyboard if your motherboard has the connection. Keyboards are often proprietary and only fit select models/series'; I don't think your model will take a backlit keyboard.

Of course the only way to know for sure would be to lift the keyboard out and look for the connection for the LED power cable.
