    Please, is there a way to stop running support assist pre boot system performance check? Sometimes when I boot up my A51m R2 it runs automatically. My notebook is running perfectly, there is no problem. I entered the BIOS settings but did not manage how to stop it. I don't have support assist installed and do not intend to. I am on BIOS v1.7.0.

    As much as i liked my Area-51M, if you don't really need a "Laptop" get a desktop instead and you could get a better performing RTX 3070/5900HX for less cash and better portability right now ...
    Hard to reccomand the 51M as of right now tbh ...

    I have the exact same issue for the past 4 months. I have not yet found a fix. I also have the issue that battery is not charging when laptop is in sleep mode.
    I could call dell support and ask for a Dell support fix (Dell support fix definition: Dell sends a tech in home to repair (detroy laptop) the laptop with replacementt MB (with a refurbished/defective one) and eventually make my 51MR2 good for trash.) but don't wan't to end up with an X series/overheating/thermalThrottling replacement system.

    I am too on 1.7.0 bios but had this issue also with the prevous bios system. Maybe i should attemps downgrading fo first version ot this bios and see if it fixes the problem.

    I had a similar issue, with ePSA kicking off at boot claiming fan issues. The problem all but disappeared after uninstalling Support Assist.

    Let me tell you something, it's a beast!
    I really liked my Area-51M but this G17 is just better performing.
    Quality of build is indeed cheaper, 51m felt like a tank, but tbh right now 51M is not a good buy. I wish they would make a R3 and Ryzen variant.
    16GB 3080 with Ryzen 9 5900X would be very nice to see.

    I'd look for Legion 5 pro, Legion 5i, Legion 7 and Legion 7i
    Asus G17, MSI GE76 just to name a few of the very nice performing 3070/3080 Laptop available right now. As well as clevo and Eluktronics desktop CPU laptop.
