Refer to this if issues occured after upgrading to Windows 10.
Keyboard Lights Don't Work ¶
Interior backlights behind keyboard are not lighting up.
Faulty Drivers ¶
Check if the ATK package is installed - you can check the ATK package under Programs and Features in Win8 (which is really add/remove programs if you're used to Win7) and can get there through Control Panel/Programs. If you want to try a shortcut in Win8, right-click (not left) in the bottom left-hand corner to open a menu and choose 'Programs and Features' to check for the ATK Package and version.
1. If you shutdown the laptop regularly, try restarting the device instead of shutting down, and you may see a difference, as there seems to be some link between shutting down and the drivers acting strange.
2. If the lights do flash when you power it on, then the hardware is all okay, but the drivers are faulty. In that case, you need to reinstall the keyboard drivers here from the manufacturer’s website.

Touchpad Disabled ¶
Press Fn+F9 to enable touchpad.
Faulty Touchpad Driver ¶
