  1. Yes, I've run it and it showed no errors except that I got noise and distorsion as I run the speaker test. Maybe it's a problem with the creative sound chip. I've read that it could be possible that the external sound is correct although the internal is faulty.
  2. Yes, I reinstalled the drivers and took the newest version. Mysterious is: I bought another M17X R4 with a graphic problem (as a project for repairing). And what can I say: This laptop has the same problems regarding the speakers: noise (distorsion) an both speaker in this case. I have the feeling that this is a general problem. OK, two of a model is not representive but it's strange that both M17X R4 have problems with the speakers. I will replace the speakers within the next two weeks and will see what happened. But I fear the problem will not be solved...
  3. Hi, I bought a alienware m17x r4 a few weeks ago. The problem is: I have noise (distorsion) on the right speaker. Had anybody in past the same problem and is it a known problem regarding this model? I feared at the beginning that the soundblaster is defect but I tested it with headphones and everything is fine. I already ordered a new speaker pair and will install it within the next weeks. But if you tell me that this problem is known and not resolvable I can save my effort.
  4. Oh... I was really excited as I read your fan modding post. But the last sentence made me sad. Is there any other possibility to increase the air flow? Maybe to buy another fan which fits in Alienware M18X R1/R2?
  5. Hi, I read a lot of different threads about the maximum possible M17X R2 configuration. But after I was more and more irritated. What is at the end the best performant GPU solution (with unlocked bios and dirver mod) but WITHOUT manual fan control and such things. Because if I want to sell one day my M17X R2 I don't want to explain and force the buyer to control the GPU fan per hand.
  6. I have a M17X R4 and a M18X R2. I ordered one P5000 in Asia and get it hopefully before Christmas. Some question: How is the heat situation with the P5000? You mentioned that you update your CPU heatsink (3 tubes) and GPU heatsink (6 tubes). Where did you buy those? You wrote that the display port is not working with the P5000 or did I misunderstand? Because to work with external monitor is very important for me. That's why I ordered the P5000. I will sell my Lenovo W530 and want to use one of my Alienware for graphics work and gaming. #Edit: I misunderstood and read DP for display port but you mean eDP, the display connection of 120Hz FHD 3D displays. I got one in Germany for 90 bucks and will install this next week. First I will test it with GTX 1060 and then (wenn arriving) with P5000... I will keep you updated. Has anybody experiences in installing the P5000 in Alienware M18X R2?
  7. As I know the A05 unlocked bios is the best. But it's not possible to download as a beginner here. I have the same problem. So if anyone can send me a link for download via PM I appreciate. By the way: $100 for a M18X R1 is really a good price. I paid 225 € - previous it was 300 € but the AW has a defect and doesn't recognize the two 6990M. I already tested one of the 6990 in a M17X R2 and it works. So I want now test some nvidia 6xx and 9xx in the M18X R1. But for this I need the unlocked bios.
