Two almost identical keyboards will no longer respond. The led still flashes momentarily on boot so i know they work.
This feature has not been tried for a few months.

This is a bit strange that 3.8 killed the screen backlight, despite the acpi_osi="!Windows 2012" argument. I'm somehow glad that I bought the UX32VD instead of the UX31A.
although i expect that 99.9% + of you loathe it when your keyboard has clicky keys, that is the one thing that i gotta have. i never watch the screen when i'm hacking away; i watch my fingers. somebody who lives in another country hacked out a key-click program based on one he has written for his son for another purpose.
I have read a few of the other posts about keyboards not working but none seem to press on my issue. I built a friend a new PC about 4 months ago. 3 months ago 1qaz stopped working. She is not exactly computer literate but i had her try replacing the keyboard and the issue continued (I took one of these keyboards and tested it on a separate rig and it worked fine).
