    Any long time owners of the 13 R3/R2 OLED? How's it been treating you guys so far? Any form of image burn-in that anyone experienced? I just purchased one for myself and I'm extremely excited to be getting it. :D

    Picked up an 13 R2 very reasonable on Ebay, working on a Samurize config now.

    Hey guys, my Alienware 13 R1 won't start when I let it charge overnight. I have to disconnect the power cable before turn it off or I have to reconnect the battery cable to start it. Any suggestion?

    If the PC starts with battery then it might be that AC adapter has failed.

    I don't think so because If I disconnect the battery and plug the power cable, it can be turned on.

    The battery is dead. I had this yesterday when I thought AW is dead instead I turned on AC adapter and it worked. Battery dead and doesn't charge anymore.

    I think that is not my case. I'm able to use it around 2-3 hours on battery.

    Hi there

    Unfortunatly my 13R2 is turned off when bios going to update, and now i have lights on, black screen and no beeps.

    Somebody know how to reflash bios to another version on 13R2 laptops?

    Many many thanks in advance

    Greetings guys. I'll buy an used Aw13 R2 from friend of mine. It has the QHD model (3200 resolution). Can i buy a lower panel resolution and install it? I saw laptopscreen can sell FullHd and HD+ panel, but i don't know if they are fully compatible.

    If you ask...i wanna swith to lower native res cause i presume QHD si too big for a 13".

    If you have Win 10 Creators Update, scaling has much improved. Not worth the trouble for new panel IMHO. Just change the resolution to 1080p or scale by 150%
