After BIOS Update GX701GX side lights not glowing

Not applicable
this is a request to Asus support, if found here.
I can not find Asus mail address to contact about it.

after a BIOS 308 update by a Asus service lab, my air vents lights stop glowing.
(very low brightness)
reinstall laptop drivers dont help. (old / new)
or to play with Aura / Armoury.

I am under warranty, and I sent the computer to the lab again.
after a two-week diagnosis in Asus lab in my country they update the status "waiting for parts" (motherboard)

so yesterday I canceled the RMA for two reasons, and I'm debating whether to ask them to reopen the RMA or not after weekend.

first reason: I'm student and im working with the laptop, I don't have another computer at home and I can not wait long time in status
"waiting for parts"
I wanted to ask them if it's possible to send to me the laptop while they wait for the new motherboard, and I will pay for the next shipping.

2. I'm afraid there will be other problems due to the motherboard swap, I basically don't have any problems with the laptop, just with the side lights after the BIOS 308 update.

if it is a BIOS 308 fault, it would be bad to replace good motherboard, and only because of side lights not glowing.

after inquiries, I found someone else on reddit with the problem after upgrading to 308.

Model: GX701GX (8750H 2080RTX 24GB RAM)
BIOS: 308
Old BIOS: 307 (glowing side lights)
Windows 10

it is a expensive laptop and I am close to 10 years Asus member.

while it is only lights, but it is a troublesome situation.

I would appreciate if anyone from support will respond to this post any time soon.
