[HARDWARE MOD] Backlit Keyboard Mod WS2812B (Addressable RGB LED) on P650RE6-G

Recommended Posts



Has anyone has tried replacing or adding addressable LEDs (WS2812B) to keyboards of the P650RE6-G or similar line of laptops?

Do you think you could use the built-in connections and backlit keyboard fn key?


Basically, I know some Clevo models support RGB backlit keyboards, mine only has the White LED option.

I want to know if this is something people have approached already or if I'd be treading in new territory.

If there are any ideas, tips/pointers you would suggest, please let me know.

These LEDs are amazing to work with.

Thanks Prema, I saw that, but that does not seem to be nearly the same.  They appear to be using tape/film to filter the color to another color.  I'm discussing a mod that allows you to have interactive LEDs with software defined color and brightness.

The keyboard physically only has white LEDs...no firmware can change that unless you change the hardware.

      I just set up a post on ideastorm, the official platform of Dell which allows customers to send in new ideas and suggestions for Dell products.
      What I want is that Dell brings back 16:10 displays, and furthermore offers new high-res RGB screens in the big AW systems, as they did in the M17x R2.
      If you like this idea, please promote it, the more votes the better.

      This was done without calibrating either monitor. Thoughts? It's a shame Dell got rid of RGB LED so quickly for the Studio XPS 16.

      Alienware™ M15x has a different keyboard status LED Layout, it is Scroll Lock, Caps Lock and Num Lock.
