Corsair K70 lights refuse to turn on after installing iCUE

So, I have a Corsair K70 keyboard from 2017, and the lights on it refuse to work if I don't have the iCUE software running in the background.


It used to work properly before I installed the software. I could choose from 1 of 3 brightness settings with a button on the keyboard (or toggle it off). I can still hit the brightness button, and I can visibly see the brightness button itself get brighter and brighter before turning off, but that is the only light on my entire keyboard that works.


Edit: Nevermind. I followed these seteps and it works now:


Unplug your keyboard.

With the keyboard unplugged, hold down the ESC key.

While holding down the ESC key, plug the keyboard back into your computer.

After about 5 seconds, release the ESC key. You will see the keyboard lighting flash if the reset is successful.
