My keyboard backlight doesn't go on and off automatically anymore depending on how light or how dark it is.  I have discovered this happens since i "upgraded" Lenove Settings to Lenove Vantage. I never gave it much thought because it worked always. Now that it is somehow gone i am experiencing how highly inconvenient this is in my work flow.  There isn't even an option anymore in Lenovo Vantage to enable automatic backlight... Why? I have never heard of 'upgrades' that actually demote an important every day function, and add an inconvenient annoyance.   Please tell me i am missing something, otherwise there is no excuse for this horrible 'upgrade'. Thanks.

Hi all,  I have lost the automatic keyboard backlight setting on my X1 Yoga 20FQ. I now only have three options; off, low and high. This was after a clean install of Windows 10 x64. All known drivers have been installed from the Lenovo support pages. Searching previous forum posts suggest installing ThinkPad Settings Dependency however this has now been widthdrawn and replace by Lenovo System Interface Foundation which I have installed. anyone got any suggestions? Thanks inadvance.

My keyboard backlight has stopped working. The hard-drive in my 3-year-old XPS 15 died, so I had it replaced with a new SS drive. My tech reinstalled Windows 10 and I reinstalled all of my software (AutoCad, MS Office, Adobe Acrobat, etc.). Fortunately, I had all my files backed-up to an external hard-drive and restored them to the new SS hard-drive.
I installed Dell Command Update. I open Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, and then Dell Keyboard Backlight Settings.......I can change the timing of the backlight, but cannot change the backlight brightness slider. It is currently set at the lowest setting, but it will not move to a higher setting. So, I do not have any keyboard backlight at all. I suspect that there is a problem elsewhere.....something is not switched on or there is a missing update? I've spent hours trying to chase this down without success. Any ideas? 
Thank You!

A:Keyboard Backlight stopped working XPS 15 L502X

Does the keyboard flash ON when the system is booted (if it does not, you have a hardware problem).
If it DOES flash on at boot time, was the system running windows 10 prior to the drive failure - and if so, did the backlight work?  If it was running an earlier version of Windows, note that Dell isn't supporting Windows 10 on this model - there may not be a driver for the backlight under Windows 10.
If it was running correctly under Windows 10 with the backlight on, have you installed the chipset and other drivers?

I bought this hp 15t notebook in Nov 2014. I upgraded the Operating System to WIndows 10 when it was released. Since then, the backlight on the keyboard is not working. I have viewed all the forums and none provided a resolution for this. I could see that the keyboard driver is uptodate. There are no other problems with the keyboard. Is there a solution to this issue ?

Hey all!
 
My keyboard backlight was working fine but then one day it just stopped.
I've pushed f10 and fn + f10 doesn't give any feedback
 
I've gone to the Windows mobility center and made sure things are fine there but still no feedback.
When i push the f10 key the setting in windows mobility center changes but it shows no light on the keyboard

But the CAPS LOCK Light and back light works  
Apart from that nothing else
 
Tried restarting also no feedback from the lights
Also could it have been a recent update that might've caused this?
Is there a driver for this?
 
Please Help

A:Keyboard Backlight Stopped working Dell Inspiron 7000 13

Does the keyboard backlight come on when the system is powered up?  If it does, you may have a software issue.
If it does not, you have a hardware problem.  
First thing to check is that the backlight cable is firmly connected to the system board (this will require removing the keyboard to check).

Check your BIOS settings to see if you can configure backlight illumination there.  And if you haven't already, try Fn+F10 rather than just F10 in case you changed your Function lock so that the F keys act as F keys by default rather than performing the function shown on their icons.

Hi,For your information, almost everyone says it's working by "fn+space" but for my laptop it was "double space", i don't know why.Anyway, backlight was working fine until yesterday. Fan started to get loud so i took my laptop apart and cleaned the fan. The noise is gone but backlight stopped working. Capslock, numlock lights and fn key are working, i do not know if there is a correlation. I read almost every topic about the issue but none of them helped.

So, as the title suggests, all the ports on my Lenovo Yoga 900 have stopped reading any outside device. I went into device manager and the usb ports don't show up anymore under the Universal Serial Bus controller tree. The only device that stills works, thankfully, is the charger which plugs into the special usb port. If anyone knows a solution i would be grateful, thank you.

Btw sorry for the quick post i am writing this on my phone. I can provide more specs for the computer if needed, also i am running Windows 10.

Moreover, the "Autoroute Lock" icon disappeared from the "Quick Actions" on the "Notification Panel".Also, the lock screen setting from "Options / Display" disappeared.The autorotation lock button on the left side of the laptop either does not react.Can anyone tell me what's going on?

After a Window's update, my trackpad stopped working. After searches online for how to fix the issue, I noticed that the trackpad was completely unistalled from my computer (vs. just being disabled). I went to the Lenovo website and re-downloaded the driver, which fixed the issue..... for a few weeks. Now my trackpad stopped working again (randomly mid use...I had not restarted my computer or anything), with no further windows updates occuring. I looked and it is once again, unistalled. I tried to download the driver again, but it didn't fix the issue this time. How do I get my trackpad back installed and working?

Hi, I just bought a ThinkPad Yoga 460 and I have a strange problem. The internal keyboard does not work any more across operating systems, so this isn't software specific. However, the keyboard *does* work in the beginning a cold start until the operating system boots - I can enter the BIOS settings, navigate around there, I can enter the onboard diagnostics utility, everything works fine - until an operating system boots. If I just reboot without turning the computer off, the internal keyboard doesn't work. I even restored factory settings, so I am writing this from an Ubuntu Live USB with an external keyboard until I have figured out how to restore EFI, but the keyboard still isn't working. The problem occured after a long time of using only the external keyboard, so I can't exactly tell what I was doing when it happened. I'm guessing it has to do with the rotation sensor being stuck, but what would be the point of disabling the keyboard if it's physically impossible to press any buttons in tablet mode... Also, the touch pad keeps working anyway. I removed Windows from the laptop and I don't think there'd be an easy way to get it back, so I hope any solutions would work on Linux too. Best regards,Malte

I purchased a Yoga 2 13 (SN: CB29722715) laptop from US with IWS. Some time back various keys on the laptop stopped working, including Ctrl, 1, 3, 5, and others, making it useless unless you also carry another laptop around. I took it to the repair center in Allahabad, India, but the service center returned it saying that the parts are not available in India. Surely there must be a way to obtain these parts? I've tried to contact Lenovo support on chat and phone, but all they can tell me is to take it to the service center. I finally got in touch with a senior tech support person, who informed via email that the parts required were FRU 25215052 and FRU 25215053, but again, I was informed that these parts were not available with Lenovo (anywhere??) and have not heard anything further since (this was two days ago). Is the IWS completely useless in this case? Is there anything I can do apart from junking the laptop?

So I booted my PC after an update the other morning and the keyboard and trackpad weren't working. I tested the brightness keys on my keyboard and they still worked so it couldn't be a hardware issue there, and my mouse still worked so it was just the trackpad that had something wrong with it. The trackpad has a driver error (code 10) but the keyboard says it's working correctly. Here's what I've tried in hopes to resolve the issues so far: -Reinstalling trackpad drivers -Uninstalling both trackpad and keyboard drivers then restarting -System Restore -Chkdsk on both drives -A trick I read on these forums where you flip the device into tent mode, then after a few seconds flip it back round to laptop mode. I am utterly confused as to what's wrong here as nothing has even slightly helped my problem.

(Willing to try more though!!!) Any ideas? I thought it may be a hardware problem, but since the arrow keys work in BIOS; I'm not confident that this is the case.
