How to turn on the keyboard backlights?

DegauseDegause Posts: 4Member New User
I just purchased my Aspire and spent about an hour trying to find how to turn on the keyboard backlights. The more I looked, the more I became confused since I couldn't find a solution.  Then a friend mentioned that my Aspire probably didn't have backlight installed.  I couldn't believe that to be true since it cost close to $500.  So, is my friend correct? or am I just incompetent? Be nice. Thank You.

    What is the exact model of notebook? Example an515-51-75kz! Usually you should press fn + f9 and the keyboard has this symbol:

    If you don't have flashing A, you don't have backlight feature.
    Please click "Yes" for "Did this answer the question", if I resolve the problem.

    Hi,
    Do you have F9 key with flashing letter A? If you don't have, then I'm afraid you don't have that feature in your model.

    Please click "Yes" for "Did this answer the question", if I resolve the problem.

  • Have you checked whether on the f9 key there is the symbol above?

    No, it does not have a symbol on the F9 other than the Mute Speaker symbol.

    Unbelievable, I didn't think they made laptops of this caliber without that specific capability.  Thank you all for the assist.
