Alienware X51 AlienFX colors not changing

The title is kind of self explanatory

Long story short, when I select a color and click "apply", the color on my Alienware stays the same, nothing happens, despite it claiming it worked.

Hello, have you tried uninstalling and re-installing command center?

Hi!

As AndrewSi suggested, the first step is to try to re-install the Command Center. Check and follow the instructions on the article and let me know if the issue persists.
