    Does anyone know how (or if there's a kit) to add back lighting to a notebook keyboard? I have a Dell N7110 and would love to be able to add red LED backlighting to the keyboard.

    Why red? Because your eyes don't have to adjust.

    I currently have it disassembled to replace the HDD and the the main issue I see is power. If you've ever seen the inside of a notebook, you should be familiar with the types of molex connections they have; they're hella small.

    I've googled for a kit or how-to in the past but wasn't successful in finding anything useful. :(

    Thanks.

    most likely option would be to solder the led directly to apower source on the main board

    i.e. to the power port
