?

Did flashing your BIOS to any version (205, 206, 209) make you lose your keyboard lights?

  1. No, I did not lose my keyboard lights.

  2. Yes, I lost my keyboard lights after the BIOS flash (Tell us which version in post).

    I followed all of Gary's steps, and my lights did not return.
    I even did the reboots, and replacement of ATK driver, no luck.

    the keyboard lights do not flash at boot either,
    but they worked up until I flashed 209
    with winflash

    I am at 213 now, any other ideas


    thanks

    I recently sent my G53JW in to Asus for repair and when I got it back, there were several things wrong (case was not assembled properly, wifi driver was corrupt scratches on the case and palm rest). I put the case together properly, reinstalled the wifi driver, and the cosmetic stuff I can deal with, but the most annoying one was the keyboard backlight. When I took the keyboard off, I found that one of the ribbon cables was upside down (Used a guide online to confirm). This didn't fix it so I'm assuming that Asus updated my bios or killed my backlight and I'd rather not send it back in to them again... So, do you guys think that this fix will work for me too, or only on the g73jh?

    My kb lights come again, i have 213 bios ver., maybe your issue not is a bios patch, if you can control the lights (win: fn+f3/f4) but doesn't turn on, maybe is a hardware issue

    what version of winflash did you use? earlier versions were killing the lights.

    Repair process is:

    uninstall ATK package
    run kblightsfix I posted above
    install updated ATK package 1.0.00010

    Hit FN + F4 for lights

    I sent in a ASUS G51JX-A1 notebook to ASUS for RMA. Checked all cables and everything was fine. Backlit did not work. Bought another keyboard and the issue still existed. Did this fix and it worked. Thanks very much.

    Please provide another link to download the file as the current link does not work.
    I am using Asus G73SW3DE keyboard lights don't work as others have reported.
    I have windows 7 64bit running on my machine.
    Also I was able to download fixmykb.rar uploaded by Carillo Gallardo but I don't
    know if the file is corrupt or incompatible as my I get the message that this file is
    not compatible with the version of windows running on this computer please check
    if you are using x64 or x86 version of windows
    Many thanks and best regards.
