I was unaware that this question never got answered, or that it has been so long, and I just recently (about an hour ago) found the culprit and it was rather simple, I had to remove a couple lines from my /etc/default/grub file that redirected what the ACPI did and now this is working great!
I had to change the grub cmdline default from this:
grub_cmdline_linux_default= "quiet splash acpi_backlight=vendor acpi_osi=linux"
I found that by removing the acpi_osi = linux line allowed the LED to work, and removing acpi_backlight=vendor allowed me to change the laptop brightness using the slider under brightness and lock. The latter was a separate issue that made me figure out the former.
I deeply apologize for the extreme delay in response as for some reason I neglected to get notifications for this question.
