    I replaced my keyboard because certain keys (like the Enter and Down Arrow keys) were not working. However, they’re STILL not working, so I suspect that something is messed up in the motherboard circuitry. Do I need to take it to a shop?

    Hello,
    How can I know if mi Studio 1557 laptop is compatible with a backlit keyboard?
    Is there any numerical reference or similar?

    Thanks in advance!

      The studio 1557 DOES have a backlit keyboard option. The part number for the backlit keyboard is C569K and we have some available at this link. http://ppci.me/i/6461 All of the keys will be the same but you will have the option to turn the back light on.
