Alien Fx Error!

I have had my laptop now for almost 2 years and it has worked great and I didn't notice that my lights on my keyboard stopped working until the other day and when I went into the command centre I couldn't change any of the colors and an error message comes up saying

"The device you have selected is included in the current theme but AlienFX cannot detect this device on your system.  Do you want to remove this device from the current theme?"

I click "no" then it continues and I see the laptop and can change the colors but nothing works.

If I click "yes" this message pops up and shuts the command centre down

"System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
