    It’s been a couple years since I’ve done this but I do remember having to override, I just can’t say for sure and don’t want you bricking your GPU!

    Well, at this point, I'd say the risk is worth it heh. I think I will try to re-install fresh windows 10 one more time, then override and flash. Talked to Dell Customer support to see if I could just buy a GPU, but didn't seem to be an option. From over here, it would be almost a 3 month turn around time if I have to send this thing back stateside.

    The m15 has much more competition from Razer, Asus, HP and such. All about the same thin and somewhat light systems with their own little quirks.

    The Area 51m only competes with the CLEVO DTRs which have had the same dull design going on 3 years now, and MSI Titian that have the horrible large dragon logo (subjective) and is considerably larger.

    People seem much more interested in it then past DTR Clevo and MSI systems that get churned out every year. Almost 500,000 in 4 months is insane for the amount of traffic this site sees in general.

    I tried using an external monitor on mine but didnt seem to matter, i still had no post and error continued so I suspect it was complete GPU failure for mine. I ran through some diagnostic tests with Dell support and they were happy to send out a technician to replace the lcd panel, GPU and Mainboard which I said i didnt want to do. Thats like buying a new car from the dealership and driving it home to have the engine blow up and they tell me they'll send a mechanic around to replace the engine...no thanks give me a new one please or a full refund.

    To anybody that uses Alienware Command Center.... It's a turd if you ever try to uninstall it... Blue screens and sleep issues... What a piece of crap software.

    There isn't any way to control fans or rgb without it right? I'm going to be doing a clean Windows install soon and would love to avoid ACC if possible.

    That's what I'm finding too, now I just keep my fans on balanced and I live with default rhb... What horrible software though, seriously it's so bad, it's made me reinstall win 3 times .... And reflash my bios cause I think it modifies invisible settings in there too... I thought I would try it again after they updated, what a mistake, now I'm reinstalling windows again. Fakkk
