Of course :P I only spelled it the wrong way, I did of course use FN + F9, still not working...
FN+10 etc works. Only FN + F9 for touchpad doesn't work.

Have you tried reinstalling drivers? Download ATK package update from Asus website. Fixed all my FN button problems.

Sounds like Master Po should have the G750JZ model from checking this post http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?46332-Watch-gameplay-from-G750-here!&country=&status= .

Although I don't have the G750JZ, it looks like my G750JW model is using the same Elan tech touchpad driver, so expect they should act about the same for this.

Anyway, you also need to install the touchpad driver for Fn+F9 to work in addition to the ATK driver, so make sure to check the touchpad driver version in device manager and update if necessary.

My G750JW touchpad driver is still the older Elantech Win8 version V11.5.8.3 even though the system is running Win8.1 Update, but Fn+F9 works at least.

Your FN + F9 should be working, check for updated driver, or just uninstall and reinstall latest to make sure.

Have you checked your F9 key for function? If Fn is working for other keys...

As a related fix, you can enable the touchpad option to disable touchpad when external mouse is attached - I use this option myself with a USB dongle wireless controller for my wireless keyboard/trackpad:

After new W10 aniversary update the FN + F9 shortcut stopped working. Had to reinstal ASUS ATK package and reinstal Smart gestures.
BTW: Smart gestures will autoinstal back, when you uninstall them(after restart they are back, although it does not contain control app as described in post before).

Well your responding to a 3 year old thread. With AU and CU updates, uninstalling and reinstalling the smart gestures software should get that working again, other software's and hard ware driver also need to be reinstalled. NVidia driver will need to be reinstalled Window install there Generic version. With all major upgrades we are going to have to do this. we are not using ordinary computer, were in a specialty bracket with Gaming notebooks so we just adjust and look around at our drivers and software reinstall as needed. Hardware drivers should be uninstalled before reinstalling, most times you'll get away with out uninstalling then again sometimes strange issues will arise, like you said the control app is not there? You also should get most of your drivers/Asus software from Asus Support downloads (https://www.asus.com/support)NVidia driver from NVidia. The drivers and Asus Software on there download site for YOUR notebook are tested and known to be good drivers. Getting drivers from other locations your on your own and you should know what your doing specifically or bad things can happen.

Here is how I fixed my issue of not being able to turn off the touch pad:
- Open Windows mouse settings
- Check the name of the touch pad software in the touch pad tab (mine was 'Sentelic'). There was no other option in that menu, maybe you can open your touchpad option from there...
- Search for 'Sentelic' in the Windows search. It found an executable "FspUip.exe" (Finger-sensing Pad User Interactive Program from Sentelic Corp)
- Launch "FspUip.exe"
- Now I can turn on/off the touch pad with the FN+F9 shortcut and the touchpad in the windows icons in the task bar appeared.

Good day, Ok, so I am having this same issue, Fn+F9 not working.. I am running a ROG 750JH. I have updated the ATK driver, but no change. I dont seem to have the smart gesture software, or at least I dont seem to have it.. I have looked around and cant even seem to see where to find it from.. I am really really REALLY getting tired of these kinds of issues. The other one that drives me nuts is having to reinstall the Bios everytime Windows does a major update (not that its tied, just painful).. Would really appreciate some further help to solve this..

If it was no work after reinstalling the ATK driver , we may suggest you reinstall the system.
sorry for the inconvenience

All your drivers and Asus software can be downloaded from Asus Support Download (http://support.asus.com/download/options.aspx?SLanguage=en&type=1)
I have no idea at all about re flashing your BIOS after a Windows update? there is no correlation between windows and your Basic Input/Output System Windows has nothing to do with what your Motherboard does at all, windows runs on your hard drive/SSD
All computer manufactures are having issues keeping up with the changes Microsoft keeps making to there OS.
Supporting 4 year old technology over multiple platforms and testing is not that practical.
if after installing drivers from Asus for your particular Model Notebook, You can also run these tools from a command prompt.
After installing these, block windows update from installing drivers. MS Generic Drivers are not the best for your notebook some will cause you Issues
If you see a new driver and others are having great success with them manually download and install.

SFC /scannow
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

If all of this doesn't solve you Issues, I have to agree with OnePiece you should try a clean install
