Laptop Alienware 17 HELP?

OK, I've put my service tag support to find out what 'R' model I have the Alienware 17 laptop and it still didn't tell me! I searched the internet for more than 2 weeks trying to find out my model with no luck at all. I don't know if it's R1, R2, R3, etc., or if it is a model of R anything. Can someone help me with this. Here's what it says when I put my service tag # to:
"Computer model Alienware 17"

Then it gives me all of my components. I'm under I5 - 4210M, 2.6, 37W CPU. I am trying to see if I can buy the graphic amplifier for my laptop but have no idea if I'm compatible or not. Help? Thank you everyone and everybody if you could help us!


Unfortunately, you have the Alienware 17 - R1, which has no port Alienware graphics required at the rear amplifier.

  • An error message appears every time I start my laptop Alienware of window 7, the message reads: "wscript.exe - no disk".

    Hi all

    An error message appears every time I start my laptop Alienware of window 7, the message reads: "wscript.exe - no disk" there is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into \Device\harddisk1\DR1.

    I'm a bit confused with this error message, I don't know if there are viruses in my computer, or the reason why this error message whenever I start my computer,

    Although I installed file encryption software.

    This could be a virus? and how to prevent this error message appear on my computer.

    Sounds like malware. Run msconfig.exe, and then selectively uncheck items under the Startup tab until you find the culprit.

  • Laptop Alienware Feedback

    I just want to leave some comments about my experience with Alienware computers. I bought my first laptop Alienware almost 5 years ago. I had the model 17 ", but I quickly returned when I discovered it was a button on the side of the keyboard and he forced to type with hands shifted the center of your body when it is sitting on your lap. I can't stand that. I hate it. It's a terrible design. So I quickly returned it for the model 15 "and I was instantly happier. Now it's time to replace my laptop and I went back to Alienware again. This time, much to my dismay, Dell has ceased to offer their laptops Alienware in size 15 ". It is now 14 "or 17". Problem is the ones 17 "and still have more than offset the keyboard absolutely terrible for the pavement. (To be clear, I will * never * buy a laptop with an offset keyboard - ever.) So, my choice was to buy a computer from somewhere else, or buy the smallest Alienware. Let me say this Alienware's amazingly overwhelming. 14 "is simply too small for a portable game. Of course, it's great for portability, but the screen is too small. In addition, the small size is obviously to limit your ability to strengthen the laptop. Regularly, I play a game called MarvelHeroes. I was hoping that I could turn the graphics set up a notch more way to high (there are always is higher at high) with a laptop that is newer than my old close to 5 years, but because of the anemic 2 GB of ram on the video card, I can't. So basically, for my use, this new laptop is not an upgrade - it's a slope downwards. I get something more recent 5 years who can not out perform something 5 years, with a much smaller screen. Please bring back the model 15 "or propose a model 17" who does not have the remote keyboard for . I'll keep the laptop 14 "that I just bought, but I must admit that I am terribly disappointed by the latter.

    This is the wrong venue for your complaint. Alienware marketing team will never see this. I can tell you that it is not a laptop Alienware of 15 "on a road map I've seen. Post your wishes for a computer 15 "laptop on IdeaStorm.

  • Laptop Alienware 17 2016


    I just bought an Alienware 17 laptop, everything works well except my WIRELESS card. The thing is that I can't connect to a wireless network. I can see a list of Wifi networks but cannot connect to one. I don't know if there is a problem with the settings on my router, but I know that there are several (5-6) devices on the wifi routers and all work without problem. I tested the laptop with a phone Wifi (I turned on tethering), and it connects to the wifi on the phone, no problem.

    I have the card Killer Wifi 1535. I'm sure it's something with the settings of the laptop but I have no idea what.

    I would be grateful if someone could help me with this question.

    Thank you

    Thanks for the quick response. I tried my laptop on another router and it works perfectly. It seems that my current router is indeed old. I'll buy a new one. Problem solved. In fact it was not any problem at first.

    Anyway thanks again for quick help.

  • Computer laptop Alienware 17 would not start


    I had this problem twice now. I was on my laptop and it should work fine ALL day and then I would stop for the night. When I wake up and try to turn on, it would do nothing for most, but sometimes he would light up for about a second or two and goes off. Both times I solved this in re-allocation of places the battery CMOS/button. Although I have solved this problem on my own, it is still VERY upsetting. Why the * does this continue to happen?

    The first time it happened, I had just installed the latest version of the BIOS and rebooted and it worked 100%. Is that I turned it off for the night and it did not work the next morning. I followed the instructions on how to install the latest BIOS very closely and I did twice previously without a problem at all!

    The second time it had happened was yesterday when I had just updated the card Wifi and a few other minor drivers through Device Manager. While I was still with my laptop, he turned to a BSOD - DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. When he did this, the speakers just makes a constant humming ceased after it began to restart. All I did was watch YouTube when this happened. And when he was trying to restart it froze on the Alienware logo. I waited about 15 minutes hoping it would move along, but he did not. I pressed the power button until it is turned off and then tried to restart it without success.

    This morning, I completely disassembled to remove the main battery and the battery CMOS/button.

    WHAT HAS CAUSED THIS? It seems to be whenever I update the drivers. I always update from the Dell website on the page where I get my serial number under "Drivers and downloads", or through the Device Manager. What is a bad piece of hardware? Software conflict? Please, please help me this end for good.

    Check with Alienware support, their drivers and documentation online and ask in their forums, because there may be problems with your model known. Perhaps all you need to do is update the audio drivers but it could also need to updates of BIOS, drivers chipset low level, and other drivers or custom programs (made by Alienware/Dell). Of course, the question could be material.
