    Hi guys, as per title really odd.

    Had loads of these over the years and never had an issue.

    I have a Aw18 that seems to be freezing randomly a couple minutes into turning on and setting fans to max, and then going back to normal and then doing again...


    Any ideas, literally never came across this before ever.

    Tested 2 different hard drives.

    @Mr. Fox any ideas bro, this was the time when you were still heavily into the scene

    If you are referring to the random ramp up in fan speed like the CPU is on fire, and the computer freezes, like 1-3 minutes after booting... and then a few seconds later everything is fine...

    Its the dell buggy update software (I believe support assist), to be safe uninstall all the dell software and diagnosis garbage.

    Literally removed those things on my Alienware 18, and voila, no more turbo jet fans a few minutes into boot.

    If i am mistaken about what the issue is, please explain further.
