    After I tune into PEG mode, black screen and eight sound. Is there any way to reset BIOS?I put the graphics card off,and the machine turned off automatically when it switched on.

    DO NOT FLASH A12 FROM ALIENWARE 18, YOU WILL BRICK!

    Look for my bios A11 improved for M18x R2, should include m18r2.hdr in the zip, place at root of fat32 usb, plug into esata port, remove main battery, press end key, plug in power cable, flash will begin , do not touch

    Having 5 beeps after reset is normal. Just power off and power on again.

    I tried two methods, both failed. They all shut down automatically immediately after booting up, without any alarm. What's the reason?
