Preferred Solution: Alienware has no sound

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.)

A: Alienware has no sound

usually can be driver error. do UNINSTALL and restart before install again.
just a reminder: my laptop have no sound when it's in the max volume;
it also have no sound after standby / hibernate (if use other driver)

well, for me, most of the case, hardware error are rare. if it do, you might ask for warranty.

have you try connecting a speaker to it?

Have a mx11 Alienware notebook. Got it in 2010 or 11. New hard drive put in a month ago. When hard drive was replaced they went ahead and put Windows 10 on.
So the windows 10 acts up, updates not installing, that kind of thing, and a few days ago I lost sound. The equalizer bars jump like it has sounds but it doesn't.
No beeps bloops or any sort of Windows chimes either.
Someone told me that Windows 10 is not going to make drivers to support my device; I suspect the cause of losing sound is Windows 10... so I want to revert back to Windows 7. I need sound! I've tried everything I know to get the sound back, all suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance.

A:No sound on Alienware mx11

Hi and welcome to the Tech Support Guy forums!

First you might want to check if your computers sound is actually muted.

Right-click the small speaker icon in your system tray (down right corner) and then click on "Open volume mixer".

Make sure that under the volume bar of your speakers there is a blue speaker icon and NOT a blue speaker with a red crossed circle (if the latter is the case, then simply click on the icon to un-mute your audio).
If the above doesn't solve your problem then you should make sure that your laptop recognizes any available audio playback devices by:
Clicking on the Start button, typing "Sound" and clicking on the found "Sound" app.
There you should be on the "Playback" tab by default and should see at least one playback device: Speakers.

If you don't see any devices or if they are there but not working properly (which seems to be the case), then you should download the audio drivers for your device from the manufacturers website:
For Alienware M11x (first model in series):
and install the drivers on your system, followed by restarting your laptop and testing if your speakers work now.

If neither helps, you should grab a pair of headphones and connect them to your laptop and try playing a song or something on it. Whether you the sound plays from your headphones or not will determine if the problem lies in the software part of your audio device or in the hardware part (dead speakers).

I just aquired an Alienware M9700 with xp loaded, and that's about all. I was not getting any sound with xp, then just upgraded to Windows 7 Pro sp1 and still have no sound.

I attempted to populate my computer fields on your website using your System Info tool, however I received an error of some sort any only some of it came over.

It appears that I have no audio/sound device, is that possible on a laptop? I hope I just need a driver, or many drivers, who knows.

I sure hope someone can help me. Thank you in advance!

A:No sound on Alienware M9700 Win 7 Pro

Dell does not list this model on their web site.

If this system originally had Windows XP, the sound chip may not be Windows 7 compatible. Generally, if the sound chip is Win 7 compatible, and no sound driver is installed, Windows will install the generic, basic function "High Definition Audio Codec". If its not installing that you may be out of luck.

Dell has a forum, Alienware Club, for Alienware users. You may want to post there to see if someone can help you, with this apparent older model (may have been made before Dell bought Alienware?).

Dear Admin,
Please help me how to fix my Alienware laptop. I've been experiencing cracking sound everytime I play music or playing games. It sounded like the speaker is somehow damage or crack. I have done all the fix and tweaks from alienware support. even reinstalling all the sound drivers. And finally I've tried to refresh my PC. But the problem still occur.
Thank you in advance for your response

A:Alienware m17x r4 Sound cracking

mazedrvr It sounded like the speaker is somehow damage or crack.
Hello. Plug in headphones and listen to them. If you do not hear the crackling through the headphones, but do hear it through the speakers, then probably the speakers need to be replaced. In that case, contact tech support to have the laptop repaired, if it is still under warranty.
If you hear the crackling through the headphones and through the speakers, then the speakers are probably okay.

Ok so wierd some My sound problems. having is new alienware here's what is up I got my alienware m xr a few months ago and i really didn't notice it to much then but the audio out jack creates quite a bit of static during music playback I recently noticed this because i bought myself some new Klipsh s earbuds and an afterglow universal wireless gaming headset and with both of these new products i noticed this buzzing on a new level Previously i have My new alienware is having some wierd sound problems. only used my sony earbuds and my decent creative labs speakers for playing back my audio but both of my new My new alienware is having some wierd sound problems. devices are noise isolating and that makes the buzz much louder and very apparent even when My new alienware is having some wierd sound problems. playing music in games Furthermore the headset plugs into the usb port for the wireless receiver and then also into an audio jack to produce game audio chat is sent through the usb port separately and when i am listening solely through the quot chat channel quot of the headset the hum is much quieter and i believe only being caused by the wireless receiver found in the left ear of the headset and it doesn't bother me that much however when i listen to the audio channel that is coming from the audio jack the buzzing becomes very loud and a different high pitched element is added to it Overall what i am mainly wondering is what can i do about my situation to decrease or hopefully eliminate that buzzing noise or at least the high pitched squeaky sound that is created As a sidenote i believe my computer comes with onboard audio powered by creative labs recon di drivers and software Thanks in advance for any help i receive -Lukas

A:My new alienware is having some wierd sound problems.

Wireless devices, even wi-fi, have been known to cause noise in audio.
Does this do it when on battery power? or only on AC power or both?

Um.. you downloaded the newest drivers for your sound card from the Internet right? Try typing in dxdiag in the command prompt and making sure that directx is detecting your sound card. Also while in dxdiag you may want to turn down the directx "hardware sound acceleration level" under the "sound" tab. Also check out

brought a second hand laptop that arrived without some drivers not operating. I've got drivers from the alienware website & also tried drivers downloaded by "driver genuis"... but still hasn't worked. I read some problems with XP SP2 so i intalled SP3 & also tried a fresh install of vista with still no success, so i'm back to my XP sp2 image. After reading other posts on here i checked my BIOS but its got no audio options
Device manager has a yellow mark on "Vinyl AC'97 Codec combo driver (WDM). Legacy audio drivers has no yellow mark but nothing listed in its properties.
Please help as this has been driving me nuts for about a week now!

New 17 R3 delivered today.  No subwoofer.  Really subpar sound from working front speakers.  However, headphones work well and eq works great with them.
Is there a chance that the subwoofer isn't connected?  No sound at all coming from it.
Checked device manager and everything is fine.  Tried installing driver from Dell found in my account.  Still no subwoofer sounds at all, not even a crackle.
Seems weird for a new AW build to be missing subwoofer functionality.

A:Alienware M17x Sound stops working.

I don't know if it is hardware or software related. I would have thought the BIOS but  you tried that. Next time it happens check the Audio Service. Go to Start>Run and type "services.msc" (without quotes) then hit the 'Enter' key (or click 'ok'). The Services window will appear. Scroll down until you find "Windows Audio" towards the bottom of the list. Check that it is enabled, set to automatic, and running. If it isn't, double click on it and change the Startup type to Automatic, then click Start, Apply, and OK. If it stops in the future even when set to automatic then I would be suspicious of a problem with Windows itself.
That is all I can think of. Suggest that you post on the Alienware Club discussion board and be sure to tell them that you already have posted on the Laptop Audio board or else they might just send you back here. In the meantime you might get a better answer from someone else on this board.
It will be helpful for them if you say the exact model name of your laptop if it is not  the original M17x, for example M17x R2, R3, or R4.

A:Alienware Subwoofer Rattling Annoying Sound Problem

If you can't get any warranty support for a "new" laptop, which is odd unless you bought a stolen unit or got it outside of your country, you need to open the laptop and check how the speaker is connected and fix it.

I have a rather annoying thingy with my laptop. When I do something on my laptop where noise is involved ( play games , play music , etc. etc. ) and I have ear plugs / headphones inserted , the sound is coming out of both my speakers and my headset.I do not know how long I already have the problem, I discovered it today when I took my headphones off for a moment.

Do any of you know how I can fix this? So that if I insert my headphones , the sound just goes through the headphones and not through the speakers at the same time. I Googled for a while now but I cant find a way to solve it. (Im not a PCs / laptops expert)

I use an Alienware M17x R4 with Windows 10.

I have already tried to update the drivers , remove and restart to reset them but nothing seems to work, PLEASE HELP!

Thanks in advance.

A:Sound coming from my headphones and speakers simultaniously - Alienware M17x R4

Hello. Please post your problem again, because half of your text has been chopped off. You might have to type it instead of paste.
Try switching to the Windows native audio driver.
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on the Creative Labs Recon driver.3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted, then no need to restart.[To get back to the Recon driver, do it again but reverse the names in steps 2 and 7.]If you only have the symptoms with one of the drivers, then the other is at fault. If you have the same symptoms with both audio drivers, then it is very probably not a driver issue, maybe hardware.

Hi everyone.
I have an Alienware 15 R2 (i7 4720HQ, 970M, 16GB, FHD) running windows 10.
I have set it up in desktop mode by connecting it to ASUS MG28UQ 4K monitor, mouse and keyboard. The monitor is connected through the laptop's mini dp port.
The problem is that when I boot up the laptop with the monitor connected, the laptop's internal sound card (SoundBlaster Redcon 3di) does not function, and is not available in the audio playback devices menu. The intel display audio works, though.
But when i shut down the laptop, disconnect the monitor, and then boot it back up, the sound card is detected and functional, and stays funtional even after i connect the monitor to laptop after it has booted. It keeps working until i reboot, after rebooting the same thing happens.
Any ideas what might be going wrong?

Things i tried:
reinstalled sound card driver
windows troubleshoot

Thanks in advance  

A:Sound Card not detected when laptop boots up with external monitor (mini dp) connected - Alienware 15 R2 (4720HQ)

First, make sure that the display audio device is not 'disabled' in Device Manager. When connected through HDMI this should be enabled. If it is disabled, try enabling it and see if that resolves the problem.

Second, I would suggest downloading the latest graphics drivers from Intel. This should also update the HDMI audio drivers, and may fix the problem. You may also need 4th Generation or later CPU graphics drivers. You may want to download Intel's driver updater, to automatically search for drivers.

Have you tried contacting AlienWare directly?

That seems like the easiest way to get it, if they will sell you just the case... Also, I haven't seen those cases for sale anywhere else, so it might be your only choice...

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.

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 purchased an Alienware X51 R3 (i5-6600K, 8GB DDR4, 1TB HDD, GTX 745 4GB DDR3).  It arrived today, and I noticed a problem:
I've updated Windows 10 Home, since then the machine boots, but has a black screen.  Sometimes cold restarts or unplugging the power cable for 30 seconds will result in booting to the desktop, but most times it doesn't.
Updated the GPU drivers, same thing.  Took out the 745, used the onboard HDMI... Same thing.  Tried the Win+P three times + Enter suggestion... Guess what? Same thing.
I've updated the BIOS to the latest revision too.
Any ideas what's going on, and how to fix this? It's driving me crackers that I have a machine I can't game one (OR USE!).

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Have you been avoiding all of the system upgrade windows updates that have been released this year ?

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.

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.

So I recently discovered that you can now get a GTX 1080 in to a notebook (however I have yet to find a retailer or site that sells just the GPU). Any links to a website or retailer would be lovely. With such a high performance GPU I'll will need a better CPU as well. But I am worried that my laptop cooler will not be able to control the heat. Obviously I don't want to fry my computer so confirmation on the amount of heat from a better GPU and CPU would be nice as well. Is thermal paste recommended? Also, would it be better to get a electronic store to install the components or would it be easier to install them myself (I don't trust myself enough)? Any help at all would be appreciated.Current GPU and CPU:Nvidia GTX 770MIntel Core i7-4700MQ

A:Alienware 18 - Need Upgrade Help

The largest manufacturer of MXM format video cards for notebooks is Clevo -- they have supplied systems to Dell for sale as Alienware, and supply Sager, Falcon Northwest, AVA, Eurocom and others.  
You would likely be wise to see if Dell releases a GTX1070 or 1080 for your system first -- there are no guarantees one will work at all, and with the GTX970 MXM cards still selling for  upward of $1,000, you can bet the 1070s will be $1,500 or more each, so it's not a trivial amount of money to gamble on the upgrade.
Eurocom was selling MXM upgrade kits with the required hardware for Clevo-built systems -- they may be one to try for the GTX1070 if you have $1,500 or more waiting in the wings.

I am well aware of the issues with upgrading to Windows and Alienware laptops but I feel that those of us who own the M X should now be able to upgrade I do not understand why it was only certain systems that were tested If Dell wish to keep Alienware M18X customers then all systems capable of running Windows should be tested I feel that if this issue is not resolved then I for one will never buy another Dell system Every company should keep up to date with future OS expansions and make it possible for all to upgrade The reason I state this is the M X is not that old and does support the upgrade but as we are all aware there is an issue when installing the driver for the GPU s I would very much like to see a FIX for this so that those of us with this issue are not Alienware M18X left out and do not have to be out of pocket to purchase another product in order Alienware M18X to benefit from the upgrade nbsp

We have seen a number of failed Alienware laptops in our shop. They seem to be having a series of manufacturing problems, despite being purchased by Dell.

Be sure you get the longest possible warranty? And remember it is now a Dell with the contract Dell service techs coming to your house without a clue.

I would go for a high end HP, or a high end Dell or ASUS over the Alienware, dispite the sometimes appealing configurations.

Hi everyone so here is my issue My son has an Alienware X R PC from early It came with Windows and he has not had any problems with it When we installed Windows on it everything worked fine until we rebooted For some 10 Windows Alienware and reason when Alienware and Windows 10 the computer is rebooted his single monitor setup switchs to dual and the connected monitor will go from showing the loading windows screen to a black screen with a mouse cursor right clicking doesnt really do anything If I plug the monitor in using an HDMI Alienware and Windows 10 cord it will work fine The monitor he uses is an Asus VG QE -Inch LED it runs at Mhz using a DVI cable So basically everything is working fine on DVI we reboot and can see the loading screen it then goes to a black screen In order to fix it I either have to hook up the monitor with an HDMI cable or hook up a second monitor and set it to work on the ASUS again Everything will work again until we reboot again Anyone have any suggestions or need some further info It seems to only be a problem with Windows since it never did it on thanks David B

Hello All,

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.

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.

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.

I have an Alienware m laptop computer that I have had for only months and already the video card has gone bad I never had an overheating problem and the warranty is out As you know finding video cards for laptops is a pain in the you know what especially for Alienware laptops considering the video card isn t attached to the motherboard you can remove it When I called them about a replacement or something they said they didn t have any and told me to check three websites which none of them had it either I have searched everywhere through google ebay amazon etc to no avail When I asked alienware off Wow, ripped me them what they would have done if it was under warranty they couldn t answer me a supervisor So now I m stuck here with an unusable computer that I still have to pay about K on simply because there is no such video card in Wow, alienware ripped me off the world that would work with Wow, alienware ripped me off my laptop I m Wow, alienware ripped me off not an expert on video cards but this paper with info on it says I had a R NVIDIA GO with MB MXM Hybrid Video Card Is there anything I can do nbsp

A:Wow, alienware ripped me off

How do you know the problem is with your video card?

why are alienwares so overpriced? how is an alienware with the same specs as a dell xps better and more expensive?

A:Alienware vs. Dell

Alienware actually makes sure all your parts will give you great performance.
Dell has this habit of saying "Intel inside" with a 3.0 ghz CPU and 512mb of RAM.
Then you buy the system and find out you can't upgrade anything in it and you bought a 3ghz Celeron with 512mb of PC133 RAM.
If your buying a DELL, look very closely at whats in it. There is almost always a huge bottleneck in the system that they expect you to overlook.

Alienware will always put great parts in their system, do a system burn in and then ship it. I have heard their Customer support is a little lacking though.

Need Dell specialist to comment my suggestion. I'd like to upgrade my original GTX 660 in my X51 R1 (i7-2600, 16Gb RAM, 330W PSU) to new GTX 1060 not overclocked in reference design. But I'm not sure if I'd need to fix Power issue (change original power board to D85RT (from X51 R2). The problem is that if I'll need to change power board it will be not very simple quest)) I'm living in Russia so if I'd like to change powerboard it costs near 150$ and it takes 2 month to get it (it's like overclocking price from US where it costs 42$ by x3 ratio)))))
So I'd like to know if it will be going on my stock configuration without problems (GTX 1060 on X51 R1)?
Power consumtion of not overclocked GTX 1060 is less than GTX 660 (from nVidia specs), but I'm not sure.

A:Alienware X51 R1 upgrade GPU

The GTX950 and the 1060 use only 1 6 pin connector so I don't see this as an issue.   You would want a Short version though.

I did a fresh install of windows and i would like to get everything running back to the way it use to, everything seems a bit slower now and i'm thinking its because of the drivers and i can seem to find them for this model.

Also if anyone knows how to re add my fingerprint scanner to log into windows that would be great!

Thanks, Bay_Easy

A:Anyone know where i can get all the drivers for ( Alienware m17-r1)

In reference to your sound post and this post, I now see you have a Dell Alienware.

Here is the Dell/Alienware M17X drivers (they don't list an "r1", just R2 and R3) for Vista 64 bit. They should work OK with Windows 7 64 bit. Dell does not have Windows 7 specific drivers for this model.
Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States]

If you are still having problems after installing the drivers, Dell has an Alienware owners users helping users support forum. Suggest you repost there, as you can get help from those familiar with your specific model.

Can you connect a smart TV and blue tooth mouse and keyboard to an Alienware 17 then put it up and leave on thus using it as a desktop (tower replacement)

A:Using Alienware 17 as desk top

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.

I have an Alienware M11x with Intel core 2 duo processor clocked up to 1.73 Ghz, with 4GB DDR3 crucial RAM, and Nvidia 335 GM (1GB) and I'm not quite sure how well it should cope with most modern games...

I have FIFA 11 and COD Black ops, of which FIFA 11 doesn't play smoothly on medium graphics with no AA on 1368x768 resolution (less than 30fps), and cod black ops on low graphics no AA on 1368x768 doesn't play smoothly (less than 30fps).

I'd of thought I would get better fps but maybe I'm being naive, how can I improve these fps as I'm sure I should be getting better.

Due to the hybrid graphics, it's hard to find an update for the graphics card driver that works!


A:Alienware m11x bad fps?

I'm actually on the fence about buying one of these - want a small laptop that can game and this *seems* to fit the bill, but the FPS that you are reporting I have seen reported for those games in other places.

There's one thread I found with Google - apparently the Steam forums are overloaded with complaints as well. I don't know how much help you will find with that thread, but you aren't the only one having issues.

Making me think twice about getting an m11x. Sad, as it's such a beautiful machine.

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.

Hey that's not a bad price at all. But keep in mind that Alienware's customer support has deteriorated over the years, not the least due to them being owned by Dell. I'd suggest the Zatoichi from Sure, it's a Turion X2 but you can get a custom skin on it, as well as a bigger HDD for a lower price than the Alienware. Give it a shot.

hello guys, I'm a noobie-noob asking a noobietubie question

Can I upgrade my graphic card on my alienware laptop?

reason asking is some guys say it's possible, some say it isn't.

Ty and sorry for asking a noob question.

A:Alienware M15x help please

For your notebook, it's possible.

According to the manual for the M15x it uses discrete graphics cards:

MXM 3.0 Type B compliant cards with individual power budget of 35W and 65W

You probably won't find an upgrade card in a shop, though, unlike graphics cards for desktops.

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 -
Keep us updated.

So after being happy about upgrading my 660 to a 770 it turned out that my so called "GAMING PC" cant be upgraded to the 770 because of the psu 250w that cant be changed to a bigger one and for the 770 it uses 250 which in this case can never work on this, so i've asked some guy and he told me that for a 250w psu you need to get a GPU that uses max 180w in order to get it to run with my x51
so bottom line i need your help to tell me what GPU should i get ?as what is the most powerful GPU can i have on this pc,thanks.
