How To Fix ASUS AURA Not Working Issue

Before performing any of the recommended troubleshooting steps listed below it’s best to restart your computer first. This action refreshes the operating system and remove any corrupt temporary data that could be causing the problem.

There are several factors that can cause this particular problem ranging from a corrupted installation file to conflicts with other lighting software. Listed below are the troubleshooting steps you need to do to fix this problem.

Try to disable fast startup

Fast startup is a feature that allows Windows 10 to boot at a much faster speed from an off state. This is because the computer stores the initial configuration of your computer when it is shutting down allowing it to  quickly fetch the information during boot up thus saving time. Sometimes this can cause issues on the computer which is why you should try to disable it.

  • Press Windows + R and type “control panel” in the box and press Enter.
  • In the control panel, select Large icons and click on Power Options.
  • In the Power Options, click on “Choose what the power buttons do” present at the left side of the screen.
  • You will see an option which requires administrative privileges named as “Change Settings that are currently unavailable”. Click it.
  • At the bottom of the screen and uncheck the box that says “Turn on fast startup”. Save changes and exit.
  • Restart your computer

Check the RGB header connection

There’s a possibility that the RGB device is not properly connected to the LED header of the motherboard. When this happens the device will not light up which can give the illusion of the software not working. It’s best to make sure that the LED connections are properly set.

Uninstall other lighting software

If you have other lighting software installed in your computer that controls the RGB lighting of other devices then you should try uninstalling this as it might be what’s causing the problem. Once the other lighting software have been uninstalled try checking if the ASUS Aura not working issue still occurs.
