I ordered an M17x which had Windows Vista on it. The laptop lighting system worked great. When windows 7 came out I formatted and installed Windows 7 instead of Vista. When I did the format my laptop keyboard was green with a purple alienware head. Now that Windows 7 is installed, every single time I restart the computer it goes back to the green and purple head instead of staying with the new themes I create. Also, the alien head will not change off purple, the only thing that will change is the keyboard.
But like I said, even then, when I restart the computer it goes back to green. It is so annoying. I tried the registry fix. It seems like that is more geared toward a keyboard that won't light up at all. Mine lights up fine. It's just the alien head won't change color and the keyboard always reverts back to what I had it on when it was installed with Vista. Anyone have any ideas? I was thinking something within the BIOS or registry that is remembering the Vista settings but I have no idea where to start.
