    As title say's

    i got a secondhand m15x where the Alien FX dint work so i looked on the web for solutions and yes i found one. for this you have too reprogram the chip that contains the info (drivers) for Command Center with will be erased as you install a previeus version....as you all know by now the lights will stop working. Bought a programmer and started reading this Link

    http://en.community.dell.com/owners-club/alienware/f/3746/t/19442434?pi21932=33

    On page 33 you find all you will need follow that and it works..........if it give's a "Chassis error" or thema not supported just remove the thema from C:\Users\Username\Documents\AlienFX\Themes. this all worked for me and i now have 2 m15x :D
