Dell E6400 laptops are almost a decade old now, but still widely used. One great feature is the backlight keyboard [also on Dell E5440]… very nice in low light environments [check SHOW MORE]
For Dell E6430, YouTube at: [[ See SHOW MORE ]] for finding the appropriate utility to get CONTROL of the backlighting to YOUR PREFERENCE under Windows 10. **** Windows 10 default is “Backlight” OFF after 10 seconds of non-keyboard use. *****
IN A NUTSHELL … With the appropriate Windows 7 utility [that STILL WORKS under Windows 10], you can control the backlight ON time up to 5 minutes… not the teeny tiny max of 10 seconds!

It is old so it wants to update lnfo.help/_Latitude?SK All the time and takes forever. If you have that issue, turn automatic updates off and this is a fast computer out of the box.
Thank you sir
Your microphone sounds like an old record player……
I have a 2015 Lattitude E5250 Win10 Home, with a UK Backlit Keyboard. None of the utilities software would work. Kept saying your system does not support this. Dell support were useless. After some searching I finally found a post with the same problem just a few days ago. The solution. It was suggested downloading the "Dell Feature Enhancement Pack Application" I checked to see if my Latitude E5250 was supported, it wasn't. But others in the E5 series were, so took a chance and download the Dell Feature Enhancement Pack Application. It worked and installed a "Dell Keyboard Hotkey Setting's" Icon in Control Panel. There is a back light setting with a tick box different timeouts. At fist none of these worked but the backlight stayed on all the time when ticked After a few turning off and restarting laptop, all the settings now work as they should. If you tick the never turn off box, the app closes and the backlight is now on permanently. Don't press apply, just ok after altering timeouts. Now Success!!
Downloaded the accessories for the backlit keyboard. Access from control panel. Now light stays on. Thanks for the video.
doesn't work for DELL G7
thank you sooooo muchhh it's working
Hello, did you have problems reading and playing dvds after updating to windows 10? My sometimes does not recognize the player and when it recognizes the videos are crashing, I have already tried in several dvd players but the same thing happens
I was able to install the software package on two Dell laptops without updating the BIOS. One has A32 on it, the other has A06. I plan to attempt it on another that has A03. The one with A32 is the one I mentioned before that bricked when I messed up the BIOS update. I bought a new mobo on eBay for $15 and reassembled the laptop with no problem. The BIOS automatically detected the backlit keyboard that I installed, then I loaded the software package to allow a longer lit time. I now have three Latitudes running authenticated Windows 10 with backlit keyboards.
Your keyboard looks just like mine, no special key for F6, F10 or Right Arrow. Dell says this means I don't have a backlit keyboard. Did you upgrade your laptop to add the backlight function to an older version of the keyboard?
Sir ji please batao
hp laptop mai kaise keyboard light on kare please
Answer to question forward from 5:30 (how to change backlight settings). You (supposedly) need to download Dell Feature Enhancement Pack.
