    Hello dear Community... Its my first post, first post where I need Your help...

    Two weeks ago I was got my M14x R2, after delivery i was turn it on. It was been fine 2-3 days and later after restart i got problems with sound - "No Audio Output device is installed". I was read 5 topics there - nothing was help. BIOS revision change didn't help, recovery etc doesnt help. I was uninstall drivers ... And ? "No supported device found".

    I was download drivers from official dell site - same problem. I dont have sound :( I can't do nothing.

    System reinstalled 1 hour ago, same problem [at fresh installation].
    I don't want to give up and send it to service [because my right down light doesn't work] and sometimes I got display problems...

    I would be really appreciate if someone help me and answer asap...

    Thank You anyway for every help [little too]

    Hi, I was wondering if there's a hotkey on the m14x r2 to turn the screen off? I just found out the other day my screen is black. But, if I plug it into a vga monitor it works fine. Any help would be appreciated!

    is it possible to stick a 765m in an m14xr2? Or do we need an entirely different motherboard?

    Nope. You need to buy the new AW 14.

    @titansfan,

    Even if you were able to do it, you would need a way better cooling. The cooling on the R1 and R2 is terrible, with the 765m on top of that, you got yourself a nice portable heater for the winter time
