T440s keyboard backlite

#1 Post by peter_58_ha » Fri Aug 16, 2019 1:24 am

Good morning from Germany!

Im new to ThinkPad stuff and my first TP is a T440s, bought yesterday in a normal used condition.
CPU: i7-4600
RAM: 4 GB
256 GB SSD
Full HD with 1920 x 1080

First thing I noticed was the unactivated Windows 10 home.
No big deal, installing Windows 7 pro 64 bit from USB using a original Lenovo recovery cd.
Updating to W10 pro 64 bit (1903) was easy. I found "Lenovo System Update" to get all drivers and the latest BIOS.
On this 440s BIOS version 2.47 from 01.03.2018 is installed.

First question: is that the latest BIOS version?
Second question: at startup the keyboard backlite is working (for a couple of seconds) but turns off afterwards
How can I switch the backlite on?


Pls pardon my bad english.

Thx for your help and best regards

Peter

Next time just Google for: Lenovo T440s BIOS
You'll find this: https://support.lenovo.com/ie/en/downloads/ds035965
KB Backlight: Fn + spacebar
