I don't think it will run on high settings, maybe medium settings max. Besides that, I don't think I even want to play that game on a small laptop haha :)

I was running Rage and BF4 on my m14x but just did an upgrade to SSD and my Nvidia card wasn't being read upon initial fresh install of windows..Is working now, but getting Sata2 speeds and won't install games until I fix that first.

Hey guys just picked up a m14xR1 and upgraded motherboard to a m14xR2... I have come from a m18xR2 and miss my extreme cpu. Wondering what a 3920xm or 3940xm will run like in it or am I wasting my money?

Any computer/laptop is going to suffer performance problems if they get full of dust. The systems are designed to "throttle down" the CPU/GPU speed as the temperature rises (and hits a certain threshold). You should be cleaning your computer systems on a regular basis, especially a gaming rig, as the fans will normally run high and the system will run fairly warm. A regular cleaning with compressed air and occasional repasting will help your system run cooler and last longer.

I don't know how you can run crysis 3 on max settings with 30fps.

I have i7 2,20 GHZ , Nvidia GT555M 3GB and standard lcd 1366x768 and even if i overclock (without vmods just afterburner and standard bios) i get 15 fps avarage.(anti-aliasing - off)

I'm wondering the same thing. I play Starcraft II and I get low fps when the game gets intense. My Nvidia driver is up to date too.

Currently having a lot of troubles with this "gaming" laptop. Doing research I found out many problems with this model, including the 67ºC GPU throttling which is a pain in the ass. Cant even play CSGO on lowest settings.

And keeping the Nvidia drivers updated. :)

Not always the case. I have had few nvidia drivers over time where it has decreased fps in games such as csgo, league of legends.

The latest version on my Nvidia GTX 765m card (344.48) is really making it glitchy, going back to Dell's Recommended 331.65 Driver.

I went through all the drivers starting from 331.65 in order and got to 344.11 while still having everything work. The next update after this makes my graphics scrambled again. So far run all day without any issues.

Anyone playing overwatch on m14x R1? I connect mine to a 1080p screen and could only get average of 25 fps. If any of you could get above 30 fps, what are your setting and did you guys OC?

Hi, i just joined. I;ve been cracking my head for weeks on getting my laptop up to speed. I used to be able to run pretty high end games and now those same games i used to run i cant run them well anymore, like Far Cry 5 or AC Origins. I've tried everything, but i cant adjust the volt of my gpu and that made me land here. I just want to get my computer working again so I can play the games i paid so much for please help.

      So I just received a 980m in the post and after installing it I was greeted by multiple system crashes on my Alienware m17xr4 and was unable to install new drivers.

      Is there a step in the intallation process I missed? A bios setting I was supposed to change? The laptop is already set to UEFI mode in preperation for this and upon putting the old 680m back in the system it now works again. I have heard that I need to change INI files to install drivers but I expected it to at least function without large bugs such as these. Do you think that this GPU is faulty or have I done something wrong?
       
      Thanks for any help you can give.

      Hi,
       
      I've recently got my hands on an M17x R4 Alienware Laptop from 2013 which I love. I've replaced the screen, keyboard, RAM, and hard drive to make it into a fully modern laptop. However, I'm currently waiting on a replacement for the 680m GPU with a 980m from ebay. My question for you all is, do I need to do anything with the BIOS to make this 980m work? Is there a way to prevent the laptop from using Intel HD Graphics with Optimus? I think the Intel HD Graphics on this laptop are currently broken as I see static-looking dots flash on the screen. (See image below for example). My theory is that because Intel HD Graphics with Optimus is still in-use while in-game, the dots are being caused by it.
       
      Thanks for any help in advance.

      I have spent a little time in the past few days looking around this site. I would love for someone to point me in the right direction to a forum that has information that could help me out with my problem.
       
      I have a:
       
      Alienware M17XR3 
      Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
      Intel I7-2820QM 2.3
      Bios InsydeH20 Version 1.0 A12
      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M
      (4x) 4 GB Ram
      samsung 2.5" 256 SSD (SATA3.0Gbps)
       
      It has been an amazing machine for the last 10+ years. Minor issues, nothing that an Alien Respawn could not fix, till now! On battery power it works just perfect.  Then I plug it in and it's all OK until I try to do anything, and then the screen goes white. The screen sometimes goes yellow, sometimes blue, but mostly white screen. It will do nothing until I do a hard reset (holding the power button till it turns off and turn it back on) with the power unplugged.  If the power is not unplugged then it will go through boot up to windows swirling dots then go white again. If I plug it in and do nothing I can charge it, unplug and continue what i was doing. I have tried a lot of solutions bouncing around the internet, and thought I was having a DC Jack connection issue (replaced the ac/dc power adapter, then the motherboard). I get a better connection now but with the same white screen result. I stumbled into this forum and I'm hoping to find solutions to my issues.  Then upgrade like so many others have.
       
      Any ideas, comments or suggestions welcome.
       
      Thank you in advance!
