Having problems with your Alienware PC Systems Area-51 m17x Notebook ?

I just received an alienware m17x labtop and it worked perfectly until something happened and now the alien sense won't work it, on the bottom right corner where it displays the icons, the aliensense icon is flashing, and if you highlight it it says biometric validation disabled, screen saver lock. desktop (Face Login Mode)


Answers :

This message is typically displayed when you log in without the blue "Alien Head" outline around your face (you could have been looking way down at your hands when you typed your password or were out of view for some other reason). In other words for some reason the software couldn't see your face so it's reverting to locking the desktop using any screensaver settings that you have in place.

Simply log out of or lock the desktop and log back in again with the blue outline clearly visible to return AlienSense to normal functionality.
