G46VW Backlight Issue - solved

I recently installed an SSD from using a normal HDD. When I boot up the computer the backlight does flash. However when I get to windows it does not work.

I tried using the recovery usb I made with the original HDD, that didn't work.

So I used my fathers disc and product key, then a program to pull my key from the bios. Works fine.

I'm also having to manual install drivers, which is no problem. I am currently missing sleep mode.

Any suggestions on how to get the backlit keyboard working again? Doesn't seem there's software/drivers for it on the support site.

Thanks the ATK did the trick! I thought something would specify about the backlight and not just the hotkeys as all of mine except those were working. Thanks again
