Alienware m9700 running slow and hot


First , are the fan and vents clean? Are there many programs running at the same time? Is there sufficent air flow? You might want to buy a laptop cooler with as many fans as you can get. Do you have CCLEANER found here:http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ OR MALWAREBYTES :http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ If you don't use these programs give them a try they are free. Malwarebytes has many useful tools. That's a good place to start.

Sounds like a Memory issue. It defiantly a conflict somewhere. I would start with the memory. If you have two sticks installed, then remove one. If it does the samething, re install and then remove the other one.

Sounds like you are running out of ram for the program. Try upgrading to some more ram in your system. Windows xp recommends minimum 512k of memory to run.

M9700 starts up but shuts down few minutes after vista loads


Sounds like it is a problem with the m9700 overheating. I have just repaired an m9700 with this exact issue and it was resolved by taking the CPU heatblock off, removing the dried/caked-on heat compound, and replacing it with my own (Arctic Silver 5).
Was 91c before, now down to 74c max on load (Measured with coretemp). Random crashing has stopped.

mdg941 shut down wait 1 minute, start up and tap f11 repeatedly until you get a recovery screen. there you will have 2 options read them before your decision,,if you want your computer like brand new with evrything from store. then use the 2nd choice, it will take 30=45 minutes to run but it will be as good as new. do not do anything to it once it starts. when it finishes it will ask you a few set up questions, do them then let it be it will reboot itself and your on your way..let me know how you make out.

Need a A306 or A307 for my Alienwars M9700


The drivers can be found at; http://aliendl.alienware.com/mobile/m9750/m9750_TV-Tuner_A307_XP_Vista_1.12.0.43.zip And if it's actually getting the card that you're meaning, you can purchase it direct from Alienware (I don't believe they supply them seperately anymore, but they'll happily supply one if you give them a call)
