I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Are you REALLY certain that Alienware is the best choice for your needs? Lately, we find them to be considerable trouble, both in early failures, and in difficulties getting parts and tech support. Perhaps tech support is better in Australia?

For those awaiting the imminent arrival of AMD's Vishera (aka Piledriver, aka Bulldozer rev.2, aka Bulldozer rev. C0), HotHardware have published pricing via

If AMD's strategy is consistant with the previous Bulldozer release, then pricing indicates the parts' relative performance merits in relation to Intel's current mainstream CPU range.
At $US 253, the FX-8350 launches at approximately the same price as its predecessor - FX-8150 MSRP at launch being $245. AMD seem to have noted that the FX-8120 took a sizeable chunk of the 8150's possible sales, being some $40 cheaper but offering comparable performance. AMD aren't being nearly so generous this time around.
Launch is rumoured to be October 18

I am in the process of looking for a paid for OEM for 10 Pro as I want to keep my 7 Pro key and buying one of those is just as expensive according to my local dealer - $209 + p&p which is pretty good.

Now I am also thinking at the same time what sort of mark up these dealers make over what they but the software in for resale as soem EBay sellers for example (not that I would buy from them) are offering the key but no DVD for s little as $120. So in my mind making say even a 25% mark up on what sellers pay Microsoft for what exactly do Microsoft produce their software for??

A:Just wondering re pricing

It probably depends upon how many OEM licenses they purchase at one time, but I don't know for sure. It violates Microsoft licensing agreement to use OEM system builders licenses for personal use on computers that you are not building to sell (except for Windows 8.0).

I have seen loads of stories since Microsoft announced the pricing for Windows 7 last week and I've read several stories that seem to conflict with each other. The main conflict seem to be over the "No upgrade in Europe" thing. I currently have a machine running Windows 7 RC that was originally a Vista PC.

Can some explain to me what the options (e.g. what price) will be to upgrade this computer Windows 7 Home Premium once the full version is released in October.

Also, apart from that, will I be able to "in place" upgrade from Windows 7 RC to Windows 7 release? (e.g. upgrade instead of wipe and install???)

Quote: Originally Posted by wse7en

I'm using XP Pro and I'm very comfortable with it and don't feel like I need a new OS just because it's new. My 2 factors for deciding to upgrade depend on price and future OS plans from Microsoft.

For price considerations, I can get the full version of Win 7 Professional for $100. Should I wait to upgrade to Win 7 professional to see if prices will get better, or is this already a price that even waiting won't beat?

As for future OS's, is it worth it to get 7 if Microsoft is going to come out with a new one in several years? How long do you think 7 is going to last. XP's had a very long lifespan, so if it's going to be anything like that, I would consider upgrading. But if not, maybe I can hold on to XP for a few more years for the next OS.

Given these 2 factors, any recommendations?

I started with a pre-beat version in Dec 2008, then all the differenet versions to the retail release. Win7 will have a long productive lifespan. $ 100 is a good price at the present time. Try it, you'll like it.

Ok MS, Apple has just applied some serious pricing pressure for upgrading. Due in September, current Mac owners can upgrade from Leopard to Snow Leopard for only $29!! Now, I know I know, the OS's are very different and I don't expect MS to go THAT low for Vista owners...but come on! You just KNOW the MS folks are cussing a bit now.. They must have just dropped another notch lower on their planned pricing scheme as a result. Can you imagine?? Upgrading to 7 from Vista for that price???

Sounds almost like you are trying to advertise your stuff here! In so far as the Auction price, it is usual that people will start a bid at some 'ridiculous' price, but in the end U would see that it will 'grow' a little closer to the retail/market price. Where as the other two prices are concerned.. I think if U shop around you will always find diff prices.

You have to come up w/ your own price that you feel comfortable with. Something that most others cannot do.

I very much doubt Intel will change their pricing structure, expect Haswell to come in at similar price points but with IPC improvements, lower power consumption and better integrated GPU.

I wouldn't call SB/IB expensive, given their performance they are reasonably priced compared to the competition. The i7 chips with Hyperthreading and the six core SB-E ones are a bit pricier but normal computer users and gamers won't need that sort of power. 1155 motherboard are around the same price as AM3+ ones too.

Hi guys,

New to the forum and have searched for some answers on this topic.

I have a small business with 16 computers I need to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. The computers currently have Windows 10 Home. (Side note: Will I have any issues with drivers, etc etc upgrading these computers from Home to Pro???)

Is it worth it to purchase volume licensing vs just buying OEM copies? Also when I go on CDW's site, are the "Open license" the ones I need to purchase? And are these licenses only good for 1 computer or all? (some say one license, others say one user, one is labeled 500+).

Any help is greatly appreciated. I need to get this figured out ASAP.

-Mark B.

A:Windows 10 Pro Volume licensing (very confusing pricing)

A volume license is restricted to a certain number of instances, but you can move them around as you see fit. Thus, as long as you deactivate the license for Computer A and then activate the license for Computer B, you've effected a license transfer from one machine to the other. Don't buy OEM Licenses: while cheap, they're (a) supposed to be provided by people who sell them with a computer and installing them on some other machine technically violates the license and (b) once installed, the license stays with that machine and cannot be transferred from one PC to another. As for reputable vendors to contact for volume licenses, I've done business with Software Wholesale International (now part of Crayon) for years, and they continue to offer the best prices on MSDN subscriptions and volume licenses I've found anywhere for small-timers like me. You may want to check them out as a point of comparison with CDW (whom I've also done business with).

PS: volume licenses can also come as part of a subscription deal through Open Value offerings (Microsoft Open Programs | Microsoft Volume Licensing). These may be a better deal for your business, as long as you don't mind paying them every year for your Windows seats (and other software).

PPS: working with the Microsoft Volume Licensing Center is a major PITA. Look for a vendor who will help you navigate their systems and get your account set up so you can access and use your licenses properly. SWI has videos to get people started, and great online/telephone tech support to help you get up and running. I used all of that info, because I simply couldn't perform the right incantations on my own to get things working unassisted. Sigh.

I know that I have to do a clean install, but microsoft has the upgrade priced at $50 and the full priced at $200. Can a person running the RC use the cheaper upgrade pricing?

Yes, but you need to do some editing of the cversion.ini file and have a RC key. there are several threads here at SF that have explained how. You should do a search for upgrade vs clean.

Hope this helps

Hi There,

I am a purchasing mgr for a company of 5000. Last year we bought a server licenses for Vignette's Web Content Management solution (VCM) for $675,000 with a maintenance package at 18% of the initial license fee.
Can anyone comment on whether this is a good price and whether you think it would be possible to re-negotiate the maintenance to lower than 18%?

The general availability of Windows Server 2008 R2 has brought to the table a variety of complex offerings in terms of pricing and licensing which customers might find difficult to navigate. In this regard, Microsoft has taken the necessary steps in order to ensure that companies looking to leverage the latest iteration of Windows Server for their infrastructures will be able to benefit from an insight into purchase costs as well as the license options available. ?Windows Server 2008 R2 Licensing Overview? is a guide put together by the company and offered via the Microsoft Download Center.

Hi there
available if you want to test it you can get a download via TECHNET SUBSCRIPTION.

Of course you can't use the technet download in a commercial organisation - but for developers etc who want experience in using etc etc then a technet subscription ~250 - 300 USD is a NO BRAINER IMO.

Also good for HOME users who want to learn about installing and using Servers.

If you look for promo codes you can probably get a discount too on your technet subscription.

Incidentally Students *might* be able to get a free or cheap version of W2008 Server too - same conditions not for commercial use of course.

Note the download from Technet doesn't have an expiry unlike the Free Trial download and you can use several copies.

The 2013 Australia Microsoft Pricing Office latest Microsoft Office 2013 Australia Pricing word is that Office will cost month year Office Enterprise Plans Cost More Because Of Australian Hosting Lifehacker Australia One can buy Office Home and Business for or Professional for and prices will likely drop further Office Enterprise Plans Cost More Because Of Australian Hosting Lifehacker Australia Now obviously the latter are for one PC only but if all the tales that we are hearing lately are true that people are moving away from the desktop onto tablets and the like and not needing full office etc capability then most people will only have one desktop in the house To that end one licence would be more than enough and would be sufficient for many years to come That then questions the need for Office which locks you into a subscription service ostensibly forever and Microsoft Office 2013 Australia Pricing with potential price increases as well That kind of indicates that the standalone version of Office may well be the best option for most people rather than Office

A couple of months back I registered for the upgrade from Seven to Eight. I received this in an email:

Ordering Your Upgrade

Windows Upgrade Offer will be available to order from October 26, 2012 until February 28, 2013. Around October 26, 2012, you will receive another email that includes your personal promotion code which enables you to receive the special promotional pricing for the digital download of Windows 8 Pro. That email will also include instructions on how to order the Windows 8 Pro download and how to purchase an optional DVD.

It's been a week since the release of Eight. What happened to the upgrade offer that should have arrived in an email?

The top dog carries the name Radeon HD 5870X2, and we are talking about single-PCB, dual-GPU card that will retail for cool $599. This is still $50 cheaper than GTX280 at the time of its debut [do you remember the outrageous $649?], but bear in mind that this is a top dog part.

For some odd reason, the $499 bracket will remain without a card. We expect that slot will be filled with a water-cooled edition of 5870, or more likely - 5870X2 once that nVidia launches their competing products. Afore mentioned Radeon HD 5870 is set to go on sale for $379-399, while the cheapest entry into the 5800 series, the Radeon HD 5850 is priced in the $279-299 bracket.

Nothing official from Microsoft

When it comes down to Windows 7 special offerings, Microsoft still has one or two aces up its sleeve. While it revealed the official pricing details for the upgrade and full retail boxes of Windows 7, and went live with a program designed to allow consumers in select markets to buy the Home Premium and Professionals SKUs of the OS at considerable discounts, the Redmond company has yet to unveil discount initiatives and price tags for additional offerings and flavors of the next iteration of the Windows client. This is the case with the Windows 7 Family Pack and the Windows Anytime Upgrade options. But even with Microsoft keeping a tight lid on the Windows 7 Family Pack and WAU pricing, company partners from the retail channel have made sure to leak the prices to the public.

Got tired of waiting and bought 4690k months ago. Giving todays exchange rate, paid exactly $230+VAT. Probably saved some on DDR3 vs DDR4, maybe s1151 MOBOs will be also more expensive on release, while You can buy s1150 on sales and specials. What I don't get is the sentence: 'If so, what CPU are you upgrading from or are you building an entirely new PC from scratch?'? It's not like You can upgrade just Skylake, have to basically build a new PC: CPU, MOBO, RAM. If You play building your PC, rest is usually left over from previous builds.

This thought crossed my mind this morning. They're releasing Windows 8 as a tablet and smartphone OS as well, so that means it will be competing with android and apple tablets & phones. Currently both google and apple have a major software update every year, which is free to any of their customers who own sufficient equipment. Microsoft's current Windows release schedule is every few years, and the upgrades cost $120 and up. I have no problem with their longer release schedule, but I'm hoping they'll at least adjust their upgrade pricing a bit to at least compete with the cost of OS upgrade disks for mac. Honestly if there was a substantial drop in upgrade software price I think they'd more than make up for it in a major decrease in people pirating their software. What do youguys think?

A:Will Microsoft change their pricing and upgrade scheudle to compete?

I think Microsoft is going to speed up their release schedule as well, windows 9 and windows 10 not that far away. As far as price goes, it will probably stay about the same, just my opinion

Hi everyone,
This is my first post on techspot! Ok so anyways I was looking around for a new computer and I decided to go with a really cheap alienware. Well i was looking at the cpu and I need some help. A) what amd processor is good for gaming and B) should i go dual-core? I was looking at the amd 64 4000+ for a single core and for dual I cant decide( they all look better than what i got ). I am also aware of the new AM2 coming soon, well ok i just found out today ( I'll buy a alienware when they make a compatable motherboard). What amd cpu's are gona be useing that. Oh and the fx series is just too much money. And one last thing money is a concern to me, so dont just say to go with the 4800+ . Thanks!

A:Cpu for new alienware

first of all Alienwares are not cheap, in fact they're quite expensive.

as far as the CPU is concerned, pretty much all AMD Athlon64's are good for gaming. obviously the higher the PR rating the better performance. just be sure to get a socket 939 platform and not a socket 754.

as far as single or dual core is concerned, applications written for single cores will run faster on a single core CPU than a dual core CPU. if you multitask then go dual core. but if you're strictly looking at game performance... then I would stay with a single core.

the video card will be the more important thing to consider when it comes to gaming. in most games the video card will have the biggest impact on performance. so if money's an issue then spend the extra on a better vid card vs. the better CPU

I was looking at the specs of a GTX680 and it is a smaller card than the 670. It is not as long and it only covers 2 slots were the 670 covers 3. Will the 680 fit an Alienware X51?

A:GTX 680 fit Alienware x51

The top X51 on comes with a 670, so YES appears to be the answer, although I don't know if case size changes or not from the 4 different X51 models, for 100% certainty I would call and ask them.

Only other concern is the 680 is 25 more watts then the 670, as they appear to be putting pretty weak PSU's on those systems to cut corners.

Just brace yourself for the price - they cost several times what an equivalent desktop gaming card with the same GPU will cost.

A:ALIENWARE 13 HDD Problems?

This actually is a boot error (the error code 0xc000000e) but the options you chose to use to fix it, probably wouldn't help.

Try inserting the installation disk (if you were given one) and boot from that. Then you want to choose "Repair your computer".

If this doesn't resolve it, then you should contact the manufacturer. If it is under warranty, it is under warranty, and they should repair or replace it.

I have a 1 year old Alienware 17 R2 that has a broken/problematic LCD screen -- the colors are faded and there are violet spots all over.  I'm sure that this is a hardware issue (LCD screen) because when I connect it on an external monitor/TV, the display is okay.
My laptop is still covered by the warranty.  I purchased this in the US and moved it here in PH -- where I am based.  
How do I get support or claim warranty?  I've already did the "transfer of ownership" online, contacted several Dell Support channels (including the one in India), but I've been passed from one to another without getting help.
Who do I need to call or email so that someone can help me?

A:Alienware LCD screen

Hi 2EZ4CY,
If the screen is physically broken, then it would not be covered under warranty, unless you have accidental coverage purchased with the order. 
When you say PH, do you mean Philippines?  If you could send me a private message with the service tag of the system and your contact details, then I could check and confirm if the warranty transfer has been complete to your current residing country or not. And we could also confirm your warranty info.
Could you also write a detailed description of the issue? Also, post a screenshot of the issue?
You could choose to contact us via this forum or via Twitter - @AlienwareTech or Facebook -

Yes, subject to the fact that notebooks are not designed for 24/7 operation as desktops are -- you will shorten the lifespan of the system if you run it this way.
There are plenty of less expensive ways than a high-end notebook to do this job -- if you're displaying video, even a $200 HTPC will do the job just fine without committing a $2K notebook to the job.

Hello All,

I just bought an Aloenware 14 with the following specs:

Windows 8.1 Pro
1 tb sata
256 GB ssd
16gb ram
Intel integrated graphics
NVIDIA gforce card

Ubuntu 14.04

While I was testing out the new racing game Assetto Corsa on my computer, I had not noticed that even though my battery was plugged in, it wasn't charging. Then my computer switched off. I reconnected the adapter but then the blue led on the charger went off.

When I take out the adapter, it glows blue, indicating that the charger is ready to charge.

When I plug it in to my laptop, it stops illuminating.

I have contacted dell support but I want to see if there is an easier way to fix it.

A:Alienware Not Charging

I contacted dell alienware support and they told me to send over my laptop. I will post the problem and solution once I get it back.

A:My Alienware 14 problems

yeah sounds like you need to just re install all of your drivers from dells site, also do you have any kind of vitrual machine software installed that would make its own lan connections? did you uninstall any of the oem software? the fall sensor would be a G sensor glued to the hdd probably(like the older macbooks) and will not be seen in the os as its at the BIOS level it might say its enabled in your BIOS though.

I have an alienware 17 laptop which has an onboard graphics and a 770 video card i am wondering how to completely disable the onboard so that it is always using the 770 i have went into device manager and disabled the onboard but it wont use the 770...

A:alienware 17 laptop

You need to go into the bios to disable the on board video, most systems repeatedly tap F2 during boot.

Hi all,
I need some help setting up the WOL function on my pc. I disabled the "deep sleep control" in the bios, I enabled the three checkboxes in the device manager related to WOL but the WOL works only if I put the pc in sleep mode, if I shut it down it doesn't work.
Another little thing that can be useful is that when I shut the pc down my ethernet ports repeater doesn't receive signals from it but, if I unplug and replug the power cable, it shows traffic (as you can see in the image, the pc port is the number 2) but the WOL still doesn't work.
Sorry for the poor english I did my best. Every suggestion is welcome , Thank you in advance.

My GPU and CPU overheat way to easily. I am more worried about my gpu. I can fix the cpu. My guess at idle is 50 Celsius  when playing a simple game it hits 86 C. Mine overheats way too easily I can't even play a pixel game. I would just like some assistance on how to fix the drivers. BTW I have a Nvidia 760 Ti OEM. Thank you!

You'll probably get a better response if you re-post this in the Alienware Club forum.

Hi i bought a alienware 13 through dells financing and have had it for probably a month now and week of having it i had a no power issue and i sent into the repair depot and i got it back fixed but not even 24 hours after using i got the same problem i sent it in for.I phone dell and talked with a alienware live agent and wanted to cancel the financing which he told me was fine and that he would be sending me a shipping lable to send it back i still have not received any emails or shipping lables telling me what the next step is or whats even going on. I refuse to pay for something that won't work.

A:Alienware 13 Won't Power On

The point at which you can return a system for replacement ends 21 days after the system ships.
You will need to have the system repaired -- if another repair attempt fails, ask for a replacement system.
However, if you stop payments on the system, all that will happen is that you'll damage your FICO score.

Ok to start off, this is not my laptop. It's a friends that I've looked at and found that I've noticed to have big problems. I can't seem to download anything either, not even malwarebytes(can't seem to find safe mode). Adwcleaner works fine. I've tried to press f8, but nothings happens. F2 and f12 don't seem to have options to start safe mode.
Now, when it start it up, it says "c:/users/alienware/appdata/local/conduit/backgroundcontainer/backgroundcontainer.dll". Model number is P06T(seems too small), so I think it's this one Also says M11x R2 on back too.
I'm visiting for two days so I will try to get as much done as possible(determination to download league of legends ). If not, I'll try to give/explain instructions to my friend if I do not finish.

A:Alienware Problems, Please Help Soon

I've just finished adwcleaner scan. I'd also like know how to change title now that I've got this post up; it feels like it's unclear and not specific enough. If not, I'd like to know how to delete it, so I can make another clearer post.

Im not sure whats wrong with it but its not even loading the OS when i start it up, it wont even go to the BIOS menu, I think i burnt out the mother board again (second or third time now) is there a chance it could be something else?
I was using it last night it froze on me, i turned it off about 10 minutes later i went back on to use it it worked for about 5 minutes, went to hell, and only shows the screen asking me to press F2 to go to the menu, and then it just stays black.

A:Alienware m7700

I need to know if it makes any beaping noise and what model of motherboard you have to address your query so if you can provide me any of this information then I can fix your problem.

If you recently made changes to your configuration or hardware setup a new case mabey then you may just need to make sure everything is connected correctly or take it apart and put it back togeather again. I have seen the connections ark (spark) and produce soot or black stuff that stops the computer from working so taking it apart may fix the problem in this circumstance.

Without any more info I can do no more for you so get me that information. You sound like you may know the model number of the computer so it should be easy for you.

Hi there,
I know I am not the one having this problem after I upgraded my Alienware to Win 10. Since then, I couldn't find any solution to the alienware audio problem.
It really doesn't work even I followed other's instruction but to no avail.
Can you help me with this?
