    Razer nostromo isn't lit


    Hello, I recently plugged my razer nostromo in and the backlighting won't come on. I have the latest driver (2.05) and the backlighting did work before this.

    Thanks,
    -Rick

    can you please tell me the steps you did to install the drivers?
    was the nostromo connected when you installed them?

    Mine is working normally. Do you have the latest firmware installed? It came out before Win 8, but maybe it will help anyway.

    The reason the backlighting wasn't working is because the switch on the bottom that turns backlighting on/off was off. I FORGOT THAT THERE WAS A SWITCH ON THE BOTTOM!!!!! FDNSJXNMWIUODFA<MNX
