i think the light from the desktop is out, the switch to turn it on/brighter/off is on the left side of the monitor, the light shines down onto the desk... the light bolb sits between the speakers and the monitor - not anything to do with the keyboard really.
i'd be interested to know too if this light can be replaced if for some reason it is not working...

After many HP and Windows software updates over the past few weeks my keyboard lights do not illuminate after pressing them. When I press my "caps lock" key, it does not light up. Does anyone have this same problem and a fix.

my pc is an IQ816 running Vista and I suspect our programs may be some what similar..one problem may be this...go to programs and then to HP and in HP you may see HP Ambient light..when you open this you can drag your mouse and move it around on the colours to get the light colour you want your light to display...the reason I'm telling you this is that it may just be that some how your not seeing the light because it is not set to a bright enough colour...I have mine at a whitish-blue and sometimes it changes and I then go to where I mention here and reset the light....I also have ambient light in my control panel...my on/off button also controls the brightness...again my pc is a different model so all this mey not be of any value to you...one other thing I have found with the TSmart is some times getting driver updates screws other things up and so when there are driver updates and everything is working for me ok I don't accept the updates especially for my NVIDIA video card because in the past those updates have screwed with other settings like adjusting my display brightness.

Thank you for the reply, however, when I open programs and click on HP, there are no links for the ambient light controls. Is there a function key I can press to turn on ad off the keyboard lights?
