Ok just did a clean install of Windows 8...installed Windows 8 versions of the drivers...

Im not sure but on Power settings there is an option now for "Adaptive Brightness"...

Now When I was using Windows 7 I don't think Ive seen this setting...

So is there a reason why Im getting this on windows 8
? I don't think the M17x has a ambient light sensor...

I checked on my display setting and sure enough that option was there - I believe that it doesnt specifically pertain to our AlienWare Laptops, probably for other brands and makes that do incorporate a light sensor. I know my old Dell Latitude E5510 had/has one.
