Upgrade your ram, and video cad. I would go with DDR2 800 4GB either OCZ or GEIL. And if you have the money dual video cards.

You can go to the Alienware website, now owned by Dell so it can also be accessed thru Dell, and under the support section you should be able to find all system specs, compatible upgrades and any manuals you need. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

no, it wont. Dell notebooks have proprietary components and configurations, and using another motherboard will not work, it wont fit, it wont interface with the connections, and it wont make you happy. If you want to get a gaming machine, buy an alienware device, or, (if you wanna get out a little cheaper) go to the Dell outlet, and get a refurbished Dell Studio XP. you can get one with a 2200 64 bit dual core CPU, 4 gigs ram, and 320 gig hdd for about $620 after fees etc.

Power loss

have you folks removed/installed memory with the computer plugged in ... but not powered on ???
newer systems maintain standby power on the memory .. if you have .. you could have blown a DIMM ..
I'd remove all installed memory .. then power up and see if the systems behaviour changes .. if it does .. and your system supports it .. add a stick of memory at a time untill you recreate the problem ..

Wavy display issue ... please assist!

Plugged up display via the VGA cable to an HP dv6000 laptop; the Acer powered up and displayed fine ... however, noticed a faint waving motion in the picture, as if the screen was literally gel and began to wave, from top to bottom as it appeared. Best I can describe it ... any suggestions as to why? I only connected it to this HP to try it out, I ordered it from newegg and wanted to make sure pixels werent dead on arival. I will be getting an Aurora 7500 (Alienware): AMD X2 6000, Windows Vista Premium, 2GB RAM, GeForce 512 8800GT, SLI ready motherboard ... I heard good things of Acer and hoped this display would look great with my soon-to-come setup and im sure it will. However, just nervous it will do this on my Aurora. Any help or suggestions would be beyond appreciated!!

Without more detailed information, I really can't help you decipher that code... Since you don't know which specific Foxconn motherboard you're working with, it might be best if you contact Alienware Customer Support for detailed information:

Good luck; let us know what you learn...
