  1. I found this on ifixit that shows you how to replace the CMOS battery. You really just need to unplug it and plug it back in. Its very extensive to get to. https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Dell+Alienware+13+Coin-Cell+Battery+Replacement/103816 Also though I think this is the beep code guide for Alienware. If its right I would say your motherboard failed. https://www.dell.com/community/Alienware-General-Read-Only/Alienware-Beep-Codes-Table/td-p/5588971
  2. Sure thing let me know if any of that works.
  3. You should check the event viewer right after it happens. Look for anything marked critical and that occurred in the last hour. If you do it right after it happens it should be the first thing there. You can also go back and check the time when it last happened and see if there is anything there.
  4. Power SW = Ground and PWR, its the power button is all it is. The rest and ground on ones are for if you have a restart button on the case. It would be Labeled something like "Reset SW" on the wires. The rest of them go to their matching pairs. ex. PLED- goes to PLED- PLED+ goes to PLED+ and so forth.
  5. Try resetting the ram to its stock speed. I would also look at event viewer and see if its throwing any errors when it happens? Its definitely strange though.
  6. When doing the DDU did you specify which drivers you were wanting to get rid of? Also, you can try opening up the laptop and resetting the CMOS battery. Im not sure if that will work but you can try and see.
  7. Is the GPU or CPU overclocked? Also when this happens can you use device manger and check to see if the driver shows up? For example: After you unplug the PC and turn it on got to Device manager -> Dsiplay Adapters -> Right Click Properties and then Driver tab.
  8. Okay I would start by trying to get the lines out the screen. Have you tried making sure the connection from the display to the PC is fully plugged in on both sides? And also try moving the cable around and see if the lines move? As far as windows not booting its probably corrupt. I would try to use your installation media, boot from that and use the system restore/reset and see if that works. If all else fails reinstall windows.
  9. I would try to uninstall the drivers, maybe use DDU just to be sure, and do a clean install of the drivers one time. What are the specs of the PC?
  10. Well I am glad we got some improvement. Ill keep looking around and let you know if I can figure anything else out.
  11. Does this happen when playing games or doing something intensive? What kind of power supply do you have?
  12. How exactly did you reset the SSD? Did you delete windows files as well?
  13. https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/slow-ssd-write-speeds-on-older-imac.2053041/ I found this article that looks similar to your situation it looks Like 1) he made sure trim was enable then... 2) He ran "fsck -fy" in terminal to force trim.
