Dell Studio 17 touch keys do not light up

\015 Hello there, I have a Dell Studio 17, and know the media keys above the Function keys are supposed to light up when you touch them. However, despite having the computer for more than 4 months now, I am yet to see any lighting up. I know it's just a cosmetic feature, but it was a selling point when I bought it. I tried Dell tech support but either the agent had no idea what my problem was or he was even more ignorant than me.Thanks in advance.\015

I just figured out how to set the top row to Fn keys instead of multimedia keys on the Dell Studio 17. Hit the light-up ''gears'' button in the center of the top part of the keyboard (to the left of the sound and rewind, pause, play, fast forward touch keys. At the bottom of the screen that comes up, you can select to have the top row work as Fn keys instead of multimedia keys.
