    Alienware On Screen Display Problems

    I bought an Alienware M17x R4 with a pre installed windows 8 64 bit operating system then updated to windows 8.1 via windows update. My problem is that it won't run the Alienware OSD application which is supposed to replace the default windows icons when using the function keys. I tried researching and tried various methods including this one but to no avail. Link here. Any ideas?

    Have you tried the Alienware "Club" forum on the Dell community? That should be the best place to start.
