    Hey I have a question.
    I use both Throttlestop and MSI Afterburner to underclock my cpu and gpu respectively. Both are set up to start with my computer and apply the right profile.
    So when I do a cold boot everything is fine. But when the laptop goes to sleep is waken up later, everything is reverted to default Alienware settings.
    Is there something I can do about this ?

    Within AWCC home screen have you made sure the Fusion tab is set to off?

    Has anyone had issues with the system freezing intermittently for 3 - 5 seconds. As far as I can recall a mother board replacement was the only cure I remember seeing. Has any other remedy been found?

    I have been putting up with this for a while now.

    Try disabling Intel SGX in the BIOS and see if the issue goes away The default option is Software Controlled.

    Also disable Firmware TPM in the security tab

    Gotta try this. Don't have a huge issue with it, but it happens maybe 2-3 times a week.... annoying.

    So I have 5mb or 98mb photos ie 9k x 9k pixel.
    They are on the sshd.
    When I attempt to open in windows 10... click on them.... they are not opening and nothing happens resulting in having to close via clicking the X.
    Then click again they open after a short pause.
    I expected this laptop to have no issues... opening photos.....
    Is this a common issue?
    What's the issue?

    1) I had the Seagate FireCuda SSHD. It's the worst and slowest drive I've ever owned. Get rid of it ASAP as it's slow and very unreliable (like all Seagate products)

    Download these Reg Files

    2) Prevent Windows from Deleting Thumbnail Cache

    3) Set Thumbnail Cache size to 4MB (default is only 512K)

    4) Reboot

    Can try changing power settings to hibernate instead of sleeping.

    There is an issue with Nvidia right click menu integration that can cause this behavior.
