    Request | GX701GX side lights not glowing BIOS 308 (please BIOS 309 or Hotfix)

    this is a request to Asus support, if found here.
    I can not find Asus mail address to contact about it.

    after a BIOS 308 update by a Asus service lab, my air vents lights stop glowing.
    (very low brightness)
    reinstall laptop drivers dont help. (old / new)
    or to play with Aura / Armoury.

    I am under warranty, and I sent the computer to the lab again.
    after a two-week diagnosis in Asus lab in my country they update the status "waiting for parts" (motherboard)

    so yesterday I canceled the RMA for two reasons, and I'm debating whether to ask them to reopen the RMA or not after weekend.

    first reason: I'm student and im working with the laptop, I don't have another computer at home and I can not wait long time in status
    "waiting for parts"
    I wanted to ask them if it's possible to send to me the laptop while they wait for the new motherboard, and I will pay for the next shipping.

    2. I'm afraid there will be other problems due to the motherboard swap, I basically don't have any problems with the laptop, just with the side lights after the BIOS 308 update.

    if it is a BIOS 308 fault, it would be bad to replace good motherboard, and only because of side lights not glowing.

    after inquiries, I found someone else on reddit with the problem after upgrading to 308.

    Model: GX701GX (8750H 2080RTX 24GB RAM)
    BIOS: 308
    Old BIOS: 307 (glowing side lights)
    Windows 10

    it is a expensive laptop and I am close to 10 years Asus member.

    while it is only lights, but it is a troublesome situation.

    I would appreciate if anyone from support will respond to this post any time soon.

    Hello Dhxud,
    Very sorry for my late reply.
    May you PM me your SN or RMA number? So I would be able to track you case.
    And the only modification that our service center did was BIOS update?
    Please kindly provide a picture of the side lights as well.
    If you happen to have a comparison would be great!
    I will ask for review on it.
    Thank you so much.
    Thank you so much!
