    Discord is a gaming live chat sort of thing that people use extensively these last few years for hanging out with friends or people in an organization etc. It start as simply clicking the link in my signature for instance, and it brings you to the webbased version of the server and you can take a username and offers to let you download standalone client as well etc.

    install the OSD and AWCC from DELL's website. Make sure the chipset and IME are installed first though. Vidiacard should be last, even after sound drivers.

    Hello guys!!! Please help me))) Sorry for my English. Yesterday I was by GTX980M from Alienware M18. My Alienware is M17X R4. Old card is GTX660M. Heatsink connected without any changing. I have pover adapter 180 DPA and I now I need 240 DPA. So.... I’m installed the card, switch on My Alien - no detected. Ok... in safe mode I deleted all previous drivers. Reboot Alien - ok detected. I didn’t update my bios, just insert the card and clean the drivers. Install nvidia driver, put new modification file. Looks like all working and detecting, but my cooling system (ventilator) off every time. Power alien keep 22% every time. My diler say in my new card other bios for Alienware 18. I don’t understand how to reinstall bios special for my Alien m17x r4. I see youtube and found allot of video but I don’t understand where take special for my Alien. Sorry a lot of bla bla bla :))) May be you understand my problem and you can assist me.? ) anyway thanks allot
