    Then they have changed the device and or vendor id of the alienfx device and because of that the program can not find it.

    Go to the windows device manager and then to input devices there should be one or more USB-HID devices. Right click -> properties. Then go to the details tab and select Hardware-IDs from the dropdown. Copy the info stated in this box into this forum. Please do this for all USB-HID devices.

    It should look something like this
    Code:
    //First device
    USB\VID_046D&PID_C047&REV_2720
    USB\VID_046D&PID_C047
    
    //second device (this is my alienfx controller)
    USB\VID_187C&PID_0511&REV_0100
    USB\VID_187C&PID_0511
    
    Regards Ingrater

    How long does it usually take to disable the LED's? The program's been at that stage for about 5 minutes now...

    It should take a maximum amout of about 0.5 sec.
    If it takes that long your alienfx device crashed. Maybe they changed the protocoll for the new alienfx device then I need to deciver the new protocoll too. If you ware willing to help me on this it is doable but very time consuming because its difficult if I don't have such a laptop.

    If the program once gets stuck you need to restart your laptop to fix it.
    You can try to restart your laptop and retry the program once or twice. If it still doesn't work they changed the protocoll too. Please close the alienfx tray bar icon before doing this. Otherwise it could lead to cross wirting to the device by my program and the alienfx software.

    Unfortunately I will be without internet from now on until wednesday.

    Regards Ingrater

    Restarted and tried again. Didn't work.

    Closed tray bar icon and tried again. Didn't work :(

    Could it be because the LED's are on a fluctuating/rotating basis? Maybe setting all LED's to a single color would help? Edit - didn't work.

    Ingrater, Alienware released a new Command Center for WIndows 7 64-bit which I'm on now. The process updated the firmware of the LED's (I think). I tried doing your LED tester again but once again the LED's did not deactivate. I tried setting my theme to the original all-blue theme w/no animation in case that was it. Still didn't work...
