View Full Version : Asus G771JW-T7022D and G551JW--CN319D keyboard backlight

Hello all,

I have the G771JW from title and my daughter has the G551JW and both laptops have the same issue with the keyboard backlight being OFF in the login screen.
Fresh clean install of Windows 10 Home FPP, all the drivers from ASUS site installed, including the ATK package.
The backlight blinks at start-up, then stays OFF while Windows starts, keeps OFF in the login screen then starts working right after I enter the Windows login password.
Backlight controls (fn+F3 and fn+F4) works OK after I login, but not before.

Is there anything to be done to have the backlight ON at the login screen?
Else the backlight is kinda useless if I can't see the keyboard to login into Windows in the first place.

Edit: forgot to add that both laptops have the latest bios available from the ASUS downloads site.

Please? Anything?

Maybe a toggle in the BIOS could be added for G771JW / G551JW so we can have the lights on during loading and in login screen.
Or ATK run as a service and starts the keboard lights before a user logs in?
Are the Asus devs monitoring these forums?
