When you insert a service tag into the File Library, the Command Center offered might be an old one. Loading an older version could corrupt the Master Input/Output board. Instead, use this posting which will be updated if newer versions roll out.
A new AWCC (Alienware Command Center) version has been released but it is within the Alienware TactX Keyboard/Mouse software download. A user who installed it told me that the Desktop version is 22.214.171.124. I have verified that the Laptop version is 126.96.36.199. I loaded the Laptop version on my M18x-R1. It successfully upgraded 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206.* Download this Alienware Tact X Software & Driver for Keyboard and Mouse file to your windows desktop http://dell.to/UIjbIX* Run the file and it will automatically expand to C:\Dell\Drivers\YV7PN\* Remove the currently loaded Command Center. When done, restart the system* Open C:\Dell\Drivers\YV7PN\* Open 1.10.39a.GM* Open CD* Open 2a-AWCC* Open 2.8* Open either Desktops (X51, Area-51, Aurora-R4) or Laptops (M18x-R1) and run the setup file* Systems that we know do not support this AWCC = M15xI do not have the TactX Keyboard/Mouse, so once done, I copied the folder containing just the AWCC to it's own location to save it for future use. I then deleted the 584MB YV7PN folder.
