How do I turn on the LED on my touchpad?

I have recently purchased the Pavilion DV6 Notebook. I know the Touchpad has an LED light around it and it worked wonderfully when I bought it, however while messing about in Photoshop and using keyboard shortcuts I have somehow managed to turn the LED light around the touch pad off.

Any ideas on how to turn it back on again?

I have the same problem! I didn't do anything and it just won't start lighting.

Re: How do I turn on the LED on my touchpad?

Hello Everyone,

 

Some models of our computers has a touchpad LED switch. but some, you would be needing some shortcut keys to do it.

now for newer models of this KV there is a touch surface in the upper left hand side of the touchpad that can be double tap the concave part of the touchpad in the upper left and it should switch on and off. :smileyhappy: however, it would be better if you could provide the product number (not the model name.) to me. it would be a lot more easier. thanks! :smileyhappy:

Please Click On Kudos! Thanks
