    Okay guys..

    Now i have taken the machine apart, re seated everything - all been repasted.

    Working perfect, every restart

    However - every time she loads , the fans are not working for GPU 1 or 2 under load ?

    Why is this - this particular 18 came from the factory with 980's not sure if there is a fix for this?

    I just installed the sli fix from dell as this is a native 980M 18 Viking, everything working a treat!!

    No HWiNFO - fans working passively

    Just remove all RAM and try to start your laptop several time.That will bring your bios to default.After put your Ram back .
