Re:Y740 Stop the RIDICULOUS Spiral Rainbow Keyboard backlight effect!! Let us turn it off!!

@Tenit: Would/could you confirm that you installed the files that Juraj_Lenovo posted to this forum on your Y740, and they did turn off the rainbow spiral without other problem side effects?

Oh well... too bad @Juraj_Lenovo marked this thread as "solved" when the "solution" apparently wasn't sufficiently tested. Death by lazy bureaucracy, I suppose.

You can also turn the laptop off. No keyboard lighting when the power is off.

 

I find a lot of nonsense recommendations here.

I am waiting for a bios upgrade for the turn off feature to be available.

Hi,

 

I love my Legion 7i with RTX 2080 super, and I think there ain't a notebook without a flaw, and this one hasn't any apart from annoying spiral rainbow RGB on startup.

 

We need something like that Y740 package to fix our issue with the Legion 7i (mine is with i7 10875H and RTX 2080 Super).

 

Can we get some sort of unofficial fix for this issue please? This would make this notebook, the ultimate notebook for the buck on the whole market :) 

 

Looking forward to a quick fix!

 

Thanks a bunch!

This issue also persists on the 2021 Legion 7. I made a separate post about it here.

 

What I would like to know is if Juraj_Lenovo's unoffical Y540 firmware is compatible with the 2021 Legion 7?

 

@Lenovo - You have a great laptop in the form of the Legion 7. It would appeal to both gamers and  professionals alike if you can just change this default rainbow lighting preset.

I also have y740. But when I install the files by Juraj, it doesn't work at all. The log files show an error. Any idea why this might be happening?

I also got rid of iCue software. After installing the files as shared here, all the colors are removed only the blue color is there during the startup. Still, this is not a permanent fix though. Lenovo should give us all the tools within the Lenovo Vantage itself so that we don't require additional software for such silly things. Bye to spiral effect.
