Backlight & volume fn hotkeys g73jh not working

All of the function hotkeys work besides the backlight up/down and volume up/down hotkeys which are fn+f3 & fn+f4, fn+f11 & fn+f12. When these hotkeys are pressed nothing happens, not even the usual animation which appears with all the other working hotkeys.

    The reason my SOUND hotkeys were not working was because my regular speakers were disabled. (I use a headset).
    I still don't know how to fix my keyboard backlight hotkeys.

To go on anyway;

Acer Aspire 5515 Service Manual ( Free)

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

Go down to the second Aspire heading.
The one that starts with Aspire 1200.
Drop down to line 6, then go across to the right, and click on 5515.

This is a PDF file. The computer you are on now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
I would suggest upgrading to Adobe Reader 9 (9.3.4.) though, if this isn't the version on the computer.

After you click you may not see anything happening for up to 30 seconds.
The file is downloading in the background.
Usually it takes a few seconds to see the first page, and additional time to fully download.
Suggest you let the file fully download before looking through it.

This is a SERVICE MANUAL, not a User Manual. Much more detailed, including disassembly procedures.

My asus g73jh backlight will not turn on, it only turns on during reboot. How can i get it to turn on


If you're having trouble with the keyboard lights, hold the Fn key (right next to the left ctrl key) and press F4 to get the keyboard turned on. There is also the button at the top left corner that turns lights off.

I have a problem with keyboard volume control


These instructions are for Windows XP:

  • The volume button, brightness key, and disc eject button on some computers will not work if the HotKey Utility application is not running.
  • The Magnify button and the Fn keys will not function properly before the operating system has finished starting.
  • The setting may not be saved if the ESC key is used to close the Fn display. Press the ENTER key or allow the Fn display to close automatically to save the setting.
  1. Click the Start button, then click Run .
  2. In the Run window, next to Open , type MSCONFIG .
  3. Press the ENTER key.
  4. In the System Configuration Utility window, click the Startup tab.
  5. On the Startup tab, under Startup Item , ensure that there is a check in the HKserv checkbox. NOTE: If HKserv is missing, reinstall the HotKey Utility application and the Sony Utilities Library.
  6. Click the OK button.
  7. In the System Configuration box, click the restart button.

My cf30 rubberized keyboard functions but will not backlight. Is it malfunctioning or is there an option somewhere to activate it/turn it on?


There is a function key combination that turns on the back light, I believe it is Fn+F12. Hod down the FN key and press F12. The first press turns the backlight on full brightness and succesive presses dim it until it is turned off.

I'm sorry but I don't have my CF-30 in fromt of me at this time, it could be Fn+F10. There is a blue symbol on the correct key and I believe it looks like a light bulb.

If this doesn't work, you may need to have a hotkey driver installed.
