Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I recently installed PC2-6400 RAM @ 800Mhz in my Alienware Area-51 m15x laptop. Before i upgraded I had Pc2-5300 RAM installed and I used the Crucial Memory Scanner to find my upgrade. The scanner told me that I could upgrade to the PC2-6400 RAM, but now that its installed, the RAM is still running at the 5300 speed. I'm using the CPU-Z program and it says its running at about 333, when it should be at 400. I've heard that most people have to change the RAM frequency is the BIOS, so is that what I should do? and if so, how do i go about doing that?

Hi! I do understand you want to change the RAM frequency of BIOS. To change the BIOS settings, turn of your computer. Then repeatedly press F2 while turning on the computer. Then on the BIOS settings, you may go to advanced or configuration settings, whatever option is available..Then there should be RAM frequency wherein you can change it manually the RAM speed. I suggest refer to your manual of Alienware for these BIOS settings...

Alienware M15x After formating my complete HDD now my Alien-FX is not working properly also i cant install and run any softwares like (cad,Maya,DivX etc.) Please can you give the list of procedures...




If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers for spare part supplies and Driver downloads as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

Power inverter pc 500 once u put power to it the red light comes on and beeps but no a/c power


Hi there
Not a great solution but makes sense.
the ac adaptor for your alienware probably says input 240V ac 1.5Amps whilst the inverter can output 175W= 240V ac at 0.73Amps.
I am surprised it actually worked, i had to buy a 300W inverter to run my laptop. would suggest you do the same.
inverter is probably toast now anyway.
