Unfortunately, in order to reduce costs and prices, especially in the low-end group, the motherboard manufactureres stared using less good materials thus leading to problems of all sorts that can occur in less than 1 year after the purchase. Luckly for you, even though it's 5 months, it still has warranty. Nonetheless, if you overclocked it, that could be another cause for its failure.

Hit start Alienware computer goest to alien head on screen then straight to sleep mode. Please read


When you say computer clock do you mean the LED read out on the mother board? if so the numbers you are seeing are error codes you will need the mother board manual to know what those codes mean. If you don't have the manual it's possible you can go to the mother board manufacturers web site and download one then you can look up the codes to see what the problems are. Hope this helps

No power


1. Please check with the power supply of pc from a/c plug. 2. if power supply is ok then ensure that the input poewer cord is at right position in behind of cpu. 3. If you are using old type power supply (which do not autumatically turned off by operating system) then there is problem with power switch or SMPS. 4. If you are using advance power management (generally used in now-a days computers which is automatically turned off by O.S., then there may be a problem with power pin that is connecting thae mother board and power button. Shut down your computer and open the cpu chasis and tighten the pin and ensure that it is properly inserted (the location of the pin is near hard disk lid pin, power lid pin). 5. If this pin is ok then check with pconnecting wire of pin and power button and also the power button. 6.Then turn the computer on. If it does not work then check the power connectors from SMPS to mother board are properly installed and inserted. 7. If power connector is ok then there is posssiblity of problem with your SMPS (power supply) of computer. 8.Generally due to heavy load of power and long usage the condensers of smps get mailfunctioned. Take the smps or computer to a local hardware expert.
