    Asus G73jw - Fn+ key and the keyboard backlight does not work

    Hi!
    It all started with the fact that once the button is not working Fn +, combined with all the keys. Next, I clicked off the keyboard backlight and subsequently turn on the backlight keyboard failed. The keyboard backlight turns on only when the notebook.


    I reinstalled the operating system, installed all the drivers, but a positive result was not achieved.

    Advise what could be done? How can you test the Fn button? I tried the game assign Fn button on certain weapons, but it has no reaction. Should it be?

    I had this same issue on my g73sw. There is a fix for it. Lookup g73jh backlit fix. Someone on the forum made it and it worked perfect. I think it had something to do with the bios. I might be wrong. Sorry I can't link it cause my g73 died and I'm on my phone.
