Question about Alienware PC Systems Alienware M17 Notebook

2 Answers

Slow motion, fuzzy scratchy noise, shutdown problems.

Occasionally the computer will go in slow motion, and the sound will be scratchy and fuzzy, cutting in and out. All drivers are up to date, and my scans for performance etc all state they are in the green. Computer won't shutdown as well. Just the screen goes blank but the computer stays on.

The same thing happened to me
this is not a device error but a OS error
to solve this problem
use system restore to restore the system to a date before this error started occurring
this a totally random error that happens due to a code fault
just restore the system to a date where this problem was not there and you will be fine

'Slow motion computer' sounds like it has run out of RAM and is having trouble swapping disk space for a page file fast enough to keep up with your application.

Check your available RAM by:

  1. Starting the Task Manager (Right click on taskbar and select it)
  2. Select the Performance Tab
  3. Compare the Physical Memory vs Commit Charge numbers.

Try a system restore bringing computer back in time before this showed up, or complete fresh install of your windows operational system. This will prove it it's a software issue, "which should cure the problem" or a hardware problem.

Auto shutdown and reboot


Your harddrive is starting to go. You will need to replace your hard drive. When you computer starts running slow then it reboots itself is because it is trying to get itself to work properly, but the hard drive is not operating at full capacity. I would back up all of your files as soon as you can onto either a CD or a flash drive, to save yourself from very costly repairs if you need to have the data extracted from the hard drive

Are you running xp or Vista?

In XP go to device manager and expand list of IDE ATA ATAPI controllers. Right click on primary IDE controller and select properties. In advanced screen check primary IDE mode - that should be DMA.
IF that is in PIO mode - that is your problem.
Just click on driver tab in the same window and click uninstall.
REstart computer twice and problem should be solved.
Please leave your feedback if issue is solved

IntelliFax 4100 suddenly slow to print


If the dial tone sounds NOISY or SCRATCHY there probably is a phone line problem. Try changing the phone cord first. Are you using DSL phone service?

You have a very reliable fax machine.
