First of all, did they worked before?
If yes, then it means your Alienware maybe went into a power saving mode because the adapter you're using doesn't provide enough energy.
If the lights didn't worked before, then you should install all the necessary drivers and the Alienware OSD Application and Alienware Command Center.
If you have all the applications and drivers installed, then you should configure the lights in the Alienware Command Center.
Here are the official links for drivers and resources:

- FREE 24/7 support for every customer through email/chat/phone

- Conclusion
In conclusion, I believe that AVG anti-virus is the best free anti-virus software and is also the best paid-for anti-virus software because their updates are frequent and I have not yet come across a virus that could not be removed by AVG. They are also devoted to finding new viruses on the internet and finding ways to remove them as well as finding out what they do to ensure the best protection for you!

ClamAV ranks in at number two for anti-virus software on my list as it can be used on a server which is great for businesses and schools which require a server.

Number three on my list is McAfee anti-virus because it also has frequent updates and they have a large team working on fixing bugs and errors as well as discovering new viruses.

Number four on my list would have to be Norton anti-virus simply due to one fact: once you install it, you will not get rid of it unless you format your computer which would remove any viruses anyway.

So there you have it. If you are looking for free anti-virus software or paid-for anti-virus software, you are better off going with AVG!

I hope you enjoyed my tip about which anti-virus software to use. Thank you for using FixYa! Have a nice day and please remember to rate this tip.

Best regards,

Hi, i've recently bought an acer aspire one running windows 7. it came with a trial version of McAfee. I uninstalled this and put on Norton 360 which i bought at the same time. Now the pc won't boot up so...


McAfee?? this product you need to check how to totally remove it from your netbook because it will block most of the other anti virus. Consider as business strategy, so that end user just use this anti virus, rather than other.

I agree. Re imaging or reinstalling the windows operating system seems like the only fix at this point since it seems like the anti virus isn't picking up the virus. Back up the files on an external hard drive and just reinstall windows.
