This laptop has a very sophisticated backlighting system with full color, profiles, and massive programmability, but I just use the default color scheme.
However, this has all just stopped working and I have no backlighting at all.
This happened to me once before and I called MSI tech support and they told me it sounded like a hardware problem. I couldn't afford the downtime waiting for them to repair it, so I just accepted that backlighting wouldn't ever work.
Then, a few months later, it magically started working again, so I assume it was a driver problem that fixed itself.
Now the backlighting has gone out again and I really don't want to wait helplessly for it to fix itself. But I'm not sure what I need to do to force the repair. My best guess is that a Windows update installed the wrong drivers and I need to reinstall the correct ones, but the MSI website is not very helpful and I'm terrified of bricking my machine by messing with the BIOS (if necessary) or merely disabling the keyboard and thus being unable to type anything to be able to get it working again.
Does anyone have a reliable guide to getting the correct drivers installed here?
