Hi everyone,
i recently sended to RMA my G74SX (problems with VGA) and now i got it back...

Problem is that i decided to format my notebook with my copy of windows professional and by mistake i deleted the restore/F9 partition...

Anyway i procedeed with the installation and installed all the ASUS drivers but i noticed a problem... BACKLIT IS NOT WORKING!!!

I've read on a forum that the backlit should turn on for a second or so when i boot the notebook even if it's not working in windows but the backlit don't turn on at all during the boot....

HELP!!! i have to send the notebook back to RMA again???

As you noted, the keyboard backlight should always flash once on startup, regardless if it is enabled or disabled in Windows. Unfortunately, it sounds like the keyboard backlight power cable was not plugged in or was damaged during your RMA.

Hi, you mean you delete the restore /F9 partition, did you have back up?
when you install OS, your Fnction Key is work normal or not, if your function key is able to work normal, please type function key to open backlight, if no function and you can dismantle KB, please check KB connecter have plug in or not, if you cannot do, please sent RMA again.
