Laptop's Keyboard Backlight Doesn't Work

Hello everyone, I have encountered a problem and I hope to fix it ASAP. I have a ASUS Zenbook UX303LN and the keyboard's backlight will not work. The whole keyboard lights up upon startup and the power key's backlight remains on, but even if I try to adjust the keyboard's brightness, it will not respond. Does this have to do with a driver or anything? Any assistance is very much appreciated.

Yes, I've tried using the function keys. They don't work. And my laptop is actually a Asus Zenbook UX303LN, which is quite different from the UX305 series.
