  1. Hey I have a really weird problem and as far as I know its pretty unique since I have been surfing the internet for ages without result.

    Here goes:

    I bought a alienware about a year ago. Over the year (sometime can't remember when) it developed this problem of not turning on after it was turned off. If it was left for a couple of hours it would. But THEN it developed this new thing were I would have to take the kettle plug out (whatever its called) and then leave it for a few hours and it would reboot then. We sent the computer back under warranty and they appartently put in a new power supply and motherboard. Fair play.

    Anyway got the computer back and it was fine. For about a week. Then it came back and VERY quickly grew worse and worse. Now if I take the kettle plug out and leave it, it takes about five days to turn on again.

    What the FUDGE is going on? (Lol sorry for the language :D:D)

    P.S This computer is pretty powerful like, handles any new game on top graphics without a problem and always loads in first. Dunno if that helps or not.

    I saw from streaming the internet that taking the battery out and then holding the start button for 30 seconds, then putting the battery back in and clicking the start-up button works

    For some reason I'm not allowed post the url till I have five post (which I don't have, only made account today) so if you google Computer won't turn on after turning off tictactoe it should be the first one. hope this helps!
