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

I have been having the same problem. It started as constant white dots obscuring the menu but as you hardly use the menu I left it. Then I had a row of white dots 5 dots high all the way across the screen about two thirds of the way up. This only happened on Ext1 and Ext 2. I tried 3 different Scart and A/V cables in ALL the possible connections in the back and still I got the dots. This has gradually got worse and I now have a screen full of flashing dots. With it being out of Warranty (18 month old) I have been referred to a company to repair it.
Estimated cost £263.37 inc VAT  Diagnosis: Needs a new PCB board Time to fix: 1 week
I shall update once I know more/final cost, on Wednesday.
In future I shall be taking the extended warranty out. :o(
