There is a separate ribbon on the backlit board for power, so I also replaced the CD/DVD connector board where that power supply connects to as mine did not come with it. After installing that new small board, bummed to find out the connector on the mother board it in turn connects to is also bigger to accommodate those wires. So now I'm dead in the water. I think.
Here's the question. Even my standard non backlit keyboard has power going to it to light up the num lock and Caps lock keys, so the standard board is obviously getting power. Any ideas how to tap into that to power the backlit board without having to replace the entire motherboard.
I'm open to creative suggestions.
Doesn't even have to be able to be switched on and off. I'm fine with it being on all the time.
Thanks one and all.
