    what is it and what do I need to do about it IF anything?

  • I just got the same thing and I have no idea what it is or what caused it.  Can someone out there help us.  I'm running an alienware area 51.

  • OK, I got this twice.  Downloaded Command Center from Dell site and installed.  It was a new version and it updated the MIO firmware also.  Haven't had the problem since.  My machine is 4 months old, Alienware Area51.  

  • I just got this for the second time on an Aurora R4.

    It looks like this:

    I don't see any definitive answer here. Can anyone please explain what's going on here?

    Thanks for any help!

  • Appears that Thermal Controller (or some other part of Alienware Command Center Suite) is having a problem communicating with the MIO-Board hardware.

    You don't have to run Thermal Controller sub-app 24/7 (background) for it to do it's job. Click it's TaskTray icon for options.
