    Dead LCD according to the chart. I would open it up, do a hard reset (pull battery cable and BIOS battery, Hit power button for 10 seconds). Then check cable connection to LCD.

    I would imagine it would be 2,6 if the RTX card is fried.

    Still more than entitled to a refund either way

    Check the cables of PSU on both ends and give it a test run in ePSA aka Diagnostics and see if both PSU with correct wattage are detected!

    So they were right and setting hibernation to "never" in advanced power options worked. it just slept all night and was still in sleep mode when i woke up in the morning to turn it on. the laptop woke up and resumed just fine. that is the first time it has slept all the way through the night, i guess the computer is now sleeping better than i do.

    I would contact dell support. It seems you are having a problem with your card. Is it overheating?

    Heres Notebookchecks review of m51

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/Alienware-Area-51m-i9-9900K-RTX-2080-Laptop-Review.414667.0.html

    I have the LG Phillips 144 gsync panel and compared to the qhd in the a4/5 it’s better but I will be interested in those that have the AUO 144 gsync panel that is also shipped.

    Be great if someone has both panels side by side to review/see differences - contrast on the LG panel they reviewed is poor/average - might just have been their panel thou given manufacturing differences

    I'm having problems with my touchpad. The mouse pointer randomly jumps to another location and also when 2 finger scrolling down it jumps up a lot. This is literally the only issue I'm having with the laptop.

    somewhere in the last 579 pages of this thread someone else mentioned fixing a two finger scroll problem with a different driver.

    Will try this later. It seems like an RTX 2080 thing.

    I tried Fedra live (black screen) & Ubuntu live thus far.

    All I wanna do is test to see if my Apple thunderbolt display works in Linux. It does not in windows, even though with my AW 13 R3 it was plug n play.
    It won't install 10. You just need to make sure you don't install specific updates.

    Can you try using something like MSI Afterburner with the OSD enabled. Check GPU usage, clock speeds, etc. while it's running firestrike.
