20 Most Recent Dell Alienware M15x Gaming Notebook Questions & Answers


Looking at your last comment, it looks like you got it working??? Just an heads up, in the future, you might not want to put your laptop into sleep/standy mode while performing an update. If you lose power or have to do a hard shutdown you could corrupt the update and your PC might not boot back up.

Get a can of compressed air and give a good blast to open ports and cooling fans, this may resolve the issue, if not the fan will need to be replaced. I do recommend the computer be taken apart down the road for good cleaning.

Which administrator account are you talking about? The 'real' administrator or your normal "administrator group" account? If it's you normal account do you have another account with administrator privileges?
Rather than wait for answers I'll cover the above three possibilities. If it's something else I'll need more input.
1) If it's the real administrator, this is a fairly easy fix (that I had to do the other day because my OEM set a password for the account).
·Open Control Panel > User Accounts and select the option that allows you to change other accounts;
·Select the Administrator account;
·Turn off password required. Changing this option will not require a password.
2) If it's your own account but you have another account on the system with administrator privileges, the procedures above will work as well here.
3) If it's you own account and no other account has administrator privileges it will be much more complicated.
First, make a try at changing the account you are in to administrator. It's unlikely this will work and would be a major security hole, but it's worth a shot.
If that doesn't work, try booting to a command prompt and activating the real administrator. The procedures at this link attached with this post/answer, will walk you through booting to a command prompt. Once at the command prompt type the following two lines:
Net user administrator /active:yesNet user administratorp@ssw0rD Notes: 1) These two lines can be in any order; 2) "p@ssw0rD" is an example, type any password you ; and 3) The password line may not be needed in your case. I added it because my OEM set a password on my new computer. If they did on yours as well, you would have to boot back to a command prompt to change the password later so may as well do it now. You can always turn it off later.
Once you have the real administrator activated, boot back up and logon to the administrator account. Once there, use the procedure from "1)" above. this third possibility may not work, I've never actually had to try it this way, but it makes logical sense.
Good luck.

There is no such thing.
Contact Alienware, provide proof of ownership, and they may provide a backdoor password.

Hi,
Sounds like your video card is either not in properly or the drivers and a miss match and need updating.

Hi,

Have you tried removing the card and replacing it in a different slot which should get the computer to automatically find the card and the right drivers.

Hi,
Usually on the door of the cd drive there is a very tiny hole. If you turn the laptop off. Then push a needle or thin bar in to the round slot The draw should release.

Hope this helps

Actually most anything can cause them to do that. The helps that reduce those are a great Internet security, like Kaperski, a backup battery power supply, One of the main causes is low voltages. Your cpu cooling fan might be not functioning correctly or the system might be physically dirty or you might not be allowing air to get to the system, because of placement. There are many more reasons, so research the info I have sent you, maybe it will help.
