Update: T430S microphone button nonfunctional; speaker and power-on status indicators don't light up

2014-10-06, 6:18 AM

Hi guys,


I'm having an issue with my keyboard status indicator lights - as in, they don't light up anymore - even though the buttons function properly except the mic mute one.


Model: 23538NG

Serial: R9WN959


OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional X64 Service Pack 1 (Build number 7601)

Keyboard: LiteON (04X1307) - brand new but the issue was present before replacing it (and I had same one before)
Driver version: 6.1.7601.1751406-21-2006 (Microsoft)

BIOS: G7ETA0WW (2.60 ) - ReleaseDate 05-14-2014
SMBIOS Version 2.7


Also, this wasn't happening when I bought the laptop, but I don't remember if it started after I downgraded to WIN7 or after, and I didn't  find any info on this all day. Any input? Do let me know if you need any additional info.
