    Guys, how do i block the Alienware Command Center from updating? I have auto updates to the Microsoft Store set to off and i also deleted the dell automatic driver installer.. But somehow the AWCC is sneaking in.. I think along with windows updates now.. Its very annoying because any update totally breaks my AWCC to the point it just spins and loads for ever with the Balance / High Power box completely Missing!! I just want to turn it off for good from updating! Tnx

    Hi,

    I want to upgrade my Area-51M R1 (9900K, 2080, 32GB) to 64GB.
    Current 32GB Setup with this Kit: HyperX Impact HX426S15IB2K2/32 (2x16GB 2400 CL14, Hynix)

    I have now bought this 64GB - Kit:
    HyperX Impact HX424S15IBK2/64 (2X32GB 2400 CL15, Micron)

    Well, 64GB are fully recognized by Bios and Windows. Memtest86, GSAT are fully stable and without errors. No problems within Windows.
    But if I run Dell Bios Diagnostic (ePSA) Errors are found (Error 20000123, DIMM 1).
    If I remove the 2nd DIMM, ePSA doesn't complain and all seems fine.

    Bios is latest.


    Should I ignore this ePSA ?
    Ok, 32GB - Modules are not officially support but I've read that some guys are running also 32GB- Modules without any problems (even 128GB).


    Thanks for your opinion / comment.

    Are you following the correct DIMM order?

    Hi, so i did what you posted.... In the registy for the version i replaced the first digit with a 10.. But everytime i start my computer a pop up says downloading a newer version of AWCC.. I just click delay it.. Is there a specific location where this newer version is located in which i can just delete it?? I even changed the value of the version of the OC controls in the registry.. Still get the upgrade waiting popup.

    FYI I only asked if anyone had tested starting the version with a higher number “like 10” to see if the auto updates would just assume you were on a higher version and not update... I don’t know if anyone tried that and if that even works. Just follow the OP instructions... the “10.x.x” version thing is pure speculation...

    What if you swap in one of the sticks from Dell together with one of the new? Same errors?
