This is the X1 Carbon with the adaptive function row.  There are no keyboard settings in BIOS for that model, and Vantage doesn't support it either.  After you install hotkeys from the below link, you should be able to toggle through the different functions by pressing the Fn key.  If it still doesn't work, the keyboard might be broken.

Thank you, but i installed it and restarted my laptop. It didn't work.
The backlight and function key are usually on before the lenovo logo shows up when i turn on the laptop.
