Y580 - Fn+Space doesn't work

2012-09-18, 15:10 PM

Hello guys,

I've got myself a Y580 m772jge. Its a very nice laptop except for this one Problem. The Y580 has a backlit keyboard, but not mine. It isnt working. When i'm pressing the combination of Fn+space on the keyboard, the backlit wont turn on. There isnt any response on the Display either. All the other Fn combinations are working perfectly and with a response on the display.

Maybe you guys have some ideas to fix this problem or ill have to send it back to the shop and get a new one instead.

Thanks!

LenDom,

I know you have reinstall Energy Management but can you try it again but with the following step.

Uninstall Energy Management then reboot then download latest version from the web and install it and see if that helps.

Did your Fn + Space didn't work out of the box?

Thanks for trying to help me! But this solution did not help.. I guess it is a "technical" problem since it didnt work after i installed windows7 for the first time.

Ill let it replace by the shop.

 

Thanks again :)

maybe someone at the factory forgot to connect the cable.

there are 2 ribbons that need to be connected. If this happened to me, I would lift the keyboard and check the ribbons before wasting time sending laptop back to shop.
