Important New K55, tried EVERYTHING and still no backlights

My boyfriend was awesome enough to surprise me with the K55 RGB last night, I play World of Warcraft and have been looking for a nicely priced keyboard for some time now. Today I plugged it in, downloaded the CUE and even tried all the combinations and I still have no backlight. I even checked every port to make sure that wasn't a issue.

While everything else seems to work great and Im enjoying the feel I'm rather disappointed that Im having the issue with the backlight. Im assuming maybe Im just missing something and that a simple forum post may be able to help me get this resolved.

Any help would be support appreciated so that I can get right into enjoying my new keyboard!

Can you try powering it with another computer? Does it light up then? Does CUE detect the device?

I have the exact same problem. bought a new k55, everything works but no backlights.
Other computers same story, fully functional but no backlights.
CUE detects the device and acts like the lights work, it shows current color etc.
Anyone can help?

Have you tried reflashing the firmware?
Tried closing CUE and pressing the brightness button?
