Remove main battery, get a stiff toothbrush and clean battery terminal in laptop and prongs on batteries. Install battery and charge, if no change! rechargeable battery needs to be replaced.

SD Card and disc stuck in CD slot of Alienware M14x?

try taking a small piece of wire and bending a small hook into one end slide it in on TOP of the stuck disc and hooking the center hole of the disc, (you don't want to get the wire under the disc because you could damage the disc reading hardware) also once you have the disk hooked you may have to use the tweezers to gently hold the front of the disc up to align with the slot as your pulling it out. you should feel a little resistance but don't try to force the disc out too hard.

How do you eject a cd from an alienware 14

you should be able to see a very small pin hole on the cd rom itself.
Get a paper clip and unfold it, insert the longest end into the hole until it hits something and give it a push.
You can also go to the cd\dvd rom and right click- eject

Is it possible to connect PS3 to Alienware m14x?


I know people who have tried but haven't had much luck. They use a USB capture device in review mode instead but you may get a slight delay on some cheap models but a good quality one is pretty instant.

Hope this helps
