I just got my asus G73Jw, and my keyboard dosen't light up, none of my fn keys don't work, neither does my enter key
SOLUTION by Arun Sangal
1. As said by others above, if its just that you have turned the lights completly off.. then press "Fn" key + F4 key (keyboard light increase) button.
2. If the above doesn't do anything or-- if Fn key + any other F? key (like F11/F12) for sound decrease/increase don't do anything ... meaning your FN key driver is messed up, then dont worry, See Hannah Montana and relax.
After seeing it, go to your computer desktop, there you'll see, "e-driver" shortcut/icon. Click it and you'll see a new pop-up window. In this windows, ASUS various ACPI/etc drivers will "AUTOMATICALLY" download (provided you are connected to internet) and it's fast.
I did the same, and system automatically restarted/rebooted during the "e-driver" update process. Finally I restarted my system/laptop (G873JW) and "HOLY HYENAS".... my system is running like a pony ***. AWESOME, it worked for me and my problem got resolved.
1. In case you dont see "e-Driver" icon on your desktop, then usually the file is stored at "C:\eSupport\eDriver\InstAll.exe" on my laptiop. Try runing the above file from "Windows" command prompt or double clicking on this file by going to "C:\eSupport\eDriver" folder and double clicking on "InstAll.exe" file.
GIGA, you should be good to go with this FN problem on ASUS G73JW or any other series of laptop.
2. During the update process, if you see "ASUS live update" green color window comes up and starts downloading something, hang on, look at it if it's doing anything, if it does some download and hangs at the particular point (i.e. downloading not progressing), then, you can cancel it. BUT make sure the update pop-up window that came after you clicked / ran "e-Driver"/InstAll.exe file, that should complete successfully.
Once the keyboard "FN" key problem is resolved, then you can go to their site and see if they have any updated version of drivers for your video/blah/blah ... thingies.
