  • Miggy I can only suggest that its not an issue based on the Area-51 MIO. The LED number 3 flashes (blue) and it is located near the READ I/O part of the MIO. Just in case see these Posts on Diag testing:

  • Thanks Victor it helped, i reset the master I/O board with the jumper and so far the blue LED is off, i also have an alienware aurora R2  and i dont see no LED blue light or blinking, so im guessing its fix it's been a few hours, thanks.

    BTW one last help :P thous of you that have the ALX  do you guys have the blue LED or is off? thnx

  • Aloha, I have that same issue right now.. on my Silver ALX Area-51 R1. My top radiator fan is going on high and everything is plugged in as it should be.. does this light have any meaning and should I reset my M I/O board too to fix it?  Thanks

  • btw, all my tests are showing my board is responding and the lights too.. but the CC is not doing anything for the Radiator Fan speed.
