    So i've done some measuring on my n56vb, directly on the backlit ribbon slot and saw that it has a +(5v) but has no -(minus) ! I could do the -(minus) myself manualy but a friend sayd it's risky. So is it possible that the bios is responsable for this situation ? Is it electronicaly activated by doing the grounding? Cuz the keyboard works.. I've tested it with a 3v battery on +/-and it lights up! So the laptop is the problem... MAN!

    1) It will have a port so they don't have to manufacture different motherboards for each model.

    2) It's very likely a firmware limitation by either the BIOS or the EC, there is also a potential for an option select that was done further down the line in the manufacturing process.

    Hello!
    It is possible to find a full version of BIOS for this Mobo?
    It would be nice to unlock all the features.

    Thanks for the reply

    You can see if someone can unlock it for you.

    I can't be more specific as I am not in the Asus bios modding community myself but I suggest you hunt down places that is happening and ask there.
