Hello, recently my fn+f4 (back-lighting keys) aren't working.
when ever i turn on my laptop it would light up then turn off, then it wont let me turn on my back-lighting.
thanks

hi @Lolkiwifruit,
1. proceed to select the right OS version from the dropdown list;
2. you will be present with a list of categories. click on the Utilities section.
3. scroll down until you see the first utility named 'ATKACPI driver and hotkey-related utilities';
4. download that file and extract the contents;
5. uninstall the existing ATK Package, reboot, install the new package, and then reboot;
6. try to turn the backlighting with fn+f4 key combo.

you can goto control panel > programs and features. if you're talking about the physical location, it should be at c:\program files (x86)\asus\
