G75VX Keyboard Backlights not working

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Ill try to keep this relatively simple. Hopefully someone knows what is going on with my keyboard backlights.


I bought the PC with Windows 7 on it. Everything worked perfect. Backlights worked.

I tried overclocking the GPU and ended up bricking it.

Bought a new BIOS off ebay. Attempted to replace, slightly messed up the landing pads on the motherboard for the BIOS. Sent to a shop to have them repair it.

Got the laptop back and it is working beautifully... but my keyboard backlights no longer work.

Yes, I have ATKACPI installed. Yes, I have tried pressing FN+F4. All FN functions work properly.

If I go to ATK Hotkey and open Keyboard Backlight, it indicates the lights are turned all the way down.

I have not found anything in bios settings that look like they pertain to the backlights... though it wouldnt surprise me to have missed something.

I have pulled the keyboard off to check for wires that may have been left off when the shop had it. All wires are in place and correct.



Im guessing it's either going to be something big (broken keyboard) or something stupid and small I've missed... I am hoping for the later.

1. Extract the contents of the Fixmykb.zip file to your bootable USB flash drive.
Once you have booted off the USB drive, simply type fixmykb and you should see a flash completion screen immediately. Remove the flash drive and power down the system.
2. Wait ten seconds and then power up the system and enter Windows. Once in Windows, turn on the lights with the switch button and you should have a backlit keyboard now, use FN+F4 to brighten the keyboard or FN+F3 to dim it.
3. Now just in case this did not work then reboot the system and wait until you are in Windows, press FN+F4 a couple of times and the keyboard should be backlit now.
4. If after all steps the lights are not working by now, please reinstall the ATK drivers again.

Search in Google the program Rufus. Download it and create with this program bootable USB flash drive ( for boot in MS-DOS). Go in bios setup menu, disable Secure Boot and Fast Boot, enable Launch CSM. Then try boot.
