Having problems with your Alienware PC Systems Alienware M17 Notebook ?

All of a sudden when I when to boot up the laptop the power light blinks, the LED light blinks and the power cord icon is on. I can't reboot the computer or shut it down completly. Nothing changed. I was running Windows 7 Pro, 8 GB RAM. The lapton is only 30 days old. I do have the reinstall disks if I could get it to some type ofbootup state. Tks


Answers :

Unfortunately what you told me sounds like a trouble code.

Remove the battery and the power adapter for 5 minutes, plug in the ac power and attempt to turn the machine on, if you still get blinking, repeat the unplug, plug in the battery only and attempt to power up.

if you are still getting the blinking lights, you should get in touch with your dealer or alienware directly for warranty repairs.

Thanks,
Ekse
