Don’t worry, This post is just for you.
Like you, many ASUS users have faced RGB not working issue.
So, in this post, I will be demonstrating you how to fix ASUS laptop RGB not working issue.
Let’s get started.
I think you will agree with me to the point that:
ASUS is one of the world’s largest leading manufacturers in the computing market.
In fact, ASUS supplies products ranging from high-end motherboards to graphics cards.
But recently, several users reported that the ASUS Keyboard is not displaying the Backlight at all.
There may be several reasons behind this issue. But, by gathering information, I came up to know that the reasons behind Laptop RGB not working issue are a few.
So, let’s get to know the reasons for which you cannot turn on the Keyboard Backlight.
|Reasons||Brief explanation||Possible fix|
|Lack of proper ATK drivers||ATK utility key assigns functions to different keys like changing screen brightness, turning on wireless networking, switching between monitor and external video source and turning on keyboard lights.||Try out the mentioned steps below in this post, to know how to install proper ATK drivers.|

|Error state||Most likely, your laptop is in an error state which could be the possible cause for this issue.||Try restarting everything and the problem will get fixed in no time.|
Before we head towards the fixes, let me tell you first how to control the lighting intensity of your laptop.
You are most likely to see a lot of keys on your laptop but, you may not know how to use them properly.
For controlling the light intensity, there is a button named Fn, which is called the function key.
You can turn on the backlight by pressing Fn+F4 at the same time.
Pressing Fn+F4 keys continuously will help you increases the brightness of the light.
And, pressing Fn+F3 keys continuously will help you decrease the brightness and ultimately it will turn off the backlight.
Like Aura sync, Asus Armoury crate is also an app to control the RGB lighting of your gaming accessories and Asus Laptop's keyboard backlight.
You can easily control the RGB lighting on your laptop. You can customize the colors according to your desire.
The good thing is:
