Lights not changing color on X51

  • We received this X51 a few days ago and can't seem to get the lighting to change colors. We tried to do what is prompted by enabling the fx device and restarting but no luck. Any advice?

  • How sure are you that you are doing it right? Did you try just right clicking the taskbar icon and doing a quick change?

  • Uninstall FX and reinstall, reboot and try again.
