Backlight on GL502VT no longer working after flashing modded bios

Recommended Posts

I fiddled around with modding my laptops BIOS to unlock XMP profiles and hopefully seeing if optimus could be disabled. After flashing my modded bios and trying it out, I noticed that my keyboards backlight no longer turns on. I was unaware it requires an official BIOS to function. They backlights wont turn on unless ASUS ATK package is installed but now it seems it also needs an official BIOS?

 

The modded ROM and tool I used if anyone has any experience with this and doesn't mind telling me what to enable/disable, or anything else i can do to re-enable them

Thanks for responding! Unfortunately, this didn't work either. It seems that it only works if your keyboard already lights up during post.

 

Edit: I found this thread but im not sure that I fully understand it

Ok, in this case try this procedure:

 

Download and extract AFUWIN v3.05.04 (in attachment).

Download and extract archive GL502VT.rar (in attachment).

Step 1. Run AFUWIN (AFUWINGUI) and go to "Open" and locate the bios file GL502VT.bin

Step 2. On the Setup tab of AFUWIN, check only these boxes: "Do Not Check ROM ID" and "Non Critical Block 2". Uncheck all others boxes. Then click on "Flash".

Step 3. Once the process has completed successfully, simply close AFUWIN and restart your system.
Done, now your KB lights should work again.

      In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo G780.
      If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden additional menus and settings in bios setup menu, in this case you can post your request in this thread.
       
      For prepare unlocked bios you can post your request in this thread, upload your file bios backup into any fileserver and post the download link. Or you can send me your file backup of bios via PM.  For creating backup of bios use attached utility. Extract attached archive directly on the Desktop and run Backup Utility as Administrator (right click mouse, choice "Run as Administrator"). Utility will create archive "results" directly on the Desktop. Send me this archive "results" via PM.
