    That has nothing to do with your issue. I get that message as well when I boot into Sade Mode. That's the On-Screen display app which is a UWP app (Microsoft Store) that is meant to run at startup but it can't run in Safe Mode so you are getting that message. Totally normal.

    Doing one right now, 3h to go.
    Received it march 29, in Canada.

    That sucks, I was pretty happy so far. Going back to my old Alienware is depressing.


    Edit : The GPU was a 2070 by the way.

    I didn’t know the ram was locked at 2400mhz when I made the purchase.

    No wonder when I asked the salesman whether I should go for a pair of faster ram and he hesitated and didn’t reply.

    Waiting for bios update to 2666mhz is just hilarious for a $4000 machine. It should be 3000mhz at least.

    Here’s to hoping someone takes a crack at the BIOS. Willing to throw money at it.

    Spoke with Ted from HIDevolution about panel swapping and was told Dell would provide the part faster, but they sell it with the panel frame as well for a hefty sum ($800-900).

    I will keep using my LG panel for now as there is no real issue with it even when doing competitive gaming. Wonder if a 1440p 144hz panel will be released with Gsync some time.

    Out of curiosity. Is there anyone else that would be interested in a 14/15 inch version of this laptop?

    So exact same model, also with thin bezels. a little thinner, but not too much, if not can be almost the same as the area 51M.
    With only 1 PSU, and a laptop CPU instead of a desktop CPU. Would be fine if it only had up to RTX 2070.
    but all the rest the same. Has G-Sync, same keyboard, same design, ...

    It's just that I actually was looking for a laptop like that, instead of the Area 51M (although still satisfied with the Area 51M), but the m15 had too many compromises for me.

    So yeah what, are your thoughts?
