    Yes, expect the updated ATK driver for Win10 should help solve the problem and a bios update will not be necessary.

    not working for me

    I have the G501JW and have tried the ATK as well as the most recent BIOS still have no back light. Running Windows 10 Pro 64. Love the laptop, but this is annoying as I cannot see the keyboard except in a well lit room.
