Having problems with your Alienware PC Systems Alienware M17 Notebook ?

Slow motion, fuzzy scratchy noise, shutdown problems.

\015 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.\015

Answers :

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

I've been experiencing audio and video problems for the last few weeks and have tried just about everything to resolve this matter. I'm able to play all music in wmp or watch downloaded movies but I'm unable to hear Windows sounds or other internet sounds. I'm unable to watch Youtube videos because they play slow. It takes about 5 minutes to watch a 1 minute clip. When I attempt to listen to other music or hear sounds, I only hear a scratchy noise from the speakers.
