I'm getting an ANNOYING error for my alienware laptop boughbt in 2009. M15x. It keeps saying the error message below when i try to open alienware control center.

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

And i can't get the lights to turn on. I tried re installing windows 7, no luck.. tried correctly installing net framework 4 no luck, reinstalled the ACC, no luck again. Bleh. help please? thanks

When u reinstall windows 7 did u wipe ur hdd off from any old data?Did u install the ACC before u install the drivers?ACC must be installed last.u need to install the drivers for ur AW first.

Thanks for the quick replies too, this error pops up at the start of windows and when it's being shut down, basically whenever acc starts and shuts down that message appears and no lights option
