Hello everyone. I own an alienware 18x r2 with dual 7970m crossfire. i loved this laptop so much and always looked after it. recently the computer died. the dreaded 8 beeps. I tried everything i could to fix it without getting in to re-soldering. I am very tech savy (IT technician) but this is beyond anything i can do. before going on these are the specs of what i have. i7 3840QM 24GB DDR3 1866mhz ram 1x256 samsung Eve mSata 3x WD 7200RPM Intel Dual band AC 7260 vPro 2X AMD 7970m So i see 3 possible opportunities here. - Fix the PC with a Est cost of $300 and move on (cheapest, no power gain) - Fix PC and swapping GPU with Dual 980ms Est 1.6k (expensive, substantial gains have 2xGPU) - Replace entire PC with a new one with the specs i want Est 2.7k+ (Very expensive, great gains, WILL WORK most likely 1xGPU) Option 2 im not entirely sure on the process but some of the people on this forum are incredibly impressive so ill need to start a thread with Pics and steps with help from a few others. hopefully this way, others can learn as i do and use it as a guide. what do you guys think i should do?
