    Hot Zone Lighting on keyboard is not working in ASUS ROG G752VM

    3 days ago I just bought my first own gaming laptop - ASUS ROG G752VM (NVIDIA GTX 1060).

    In ROG Gaming Center I can use all functions, like disable Windows Key, On/Off backlit lighting. However, one function isn't working at all. It's "Hot Zone Lighting". I have already updated the ATK Package and reinstalled ROG Gaming Center, but still I am not able to use Hot Zone Lighting function, which supposed to switch off the right part of the keyboard lighting and only WASD part should be lighted.

    What to do in this case? How to enable Hot Zone Lighting function to be working?

    Hello mikhailarbuzov
    If you are sure that all related drivers and software are reinstalled and updated but still the issue remains, Please contact your place of purchase and ask for a replacement within the return/refund period if applied. Thank you

    That was my assumption of what "hot zone" lighting was too. However, I read someone else here say that it was actually something like a representation of the temperature of the laptop too.

    Turning it on or off made no difference for me either. It's not a persistent setting either unless you save the profile. Maybe you need to change it, save the profile, then reboot to get the effect? I'm just guessing here.

    Hot Zone Lighting is not representing temperature at all. This is what called Hot keys when you are playing. Because during games you mostly use WASD, E, R, F, G, C, V keys, so the other part of the keyboard lighting switches off, to "less annoy you during game", so you can use only "hot keys".

    And I already saved all changes made in Gaming Center to make hot zone function to be on. Rebooted, but still save issue. It's not working.

    It's not a big deal for me. But knowing that when you buy $2000 high end laptop and know tat something is not working, you feeling kind of pissed off.

    I had the same problem but I could figure it out at least for me
    The lightning was completely disabled on the keyboard and the hot zone lights had no effect. But then I noted that I maybe should turn on the lights at all (fn + f4). And now the hot zone lightning has the expected effect.

    I hope that this helps you.

    Best
