The keyboard backlight on my Qosmio x500 (pqx33c-01400n, bios v2.90) doesn't turn on. Fn-Z doesn't work. And the options for it in Toshiba's HWSetup program don't exist ... only the Illumination LED section is there. I'm guessing it's supposed to look like the manual shows:
I think you're right, thanks! The spec sheets on the pqx33a models do mention it. Also, I'm guessing the models with backlit keyboards have a little blue keyboard icon on the Z key, since Fn-Z is supposed to toggle the lighting.
Yeah. Sadly I think they make it much more confusing (manufacturers that is) when they make the same one, for different places, with different specs. I would rather they all have it, and if you don't want it, just don't turn it on.
