****************** WINDOWS 10 UPGRADE WARNING TO ALL ALIENWARE OWNERS ******************​

Windows 10 has blown out the display panels from my M18xR1 and M18xR2 within 24 hours of installing Windows 10. 8 beeps, no backlight, no boot. So, first time I blew it off as a one-off coincidence. Hardware fails, right. OK, but the second time, I'm ready to go ballistic now. Don't know if it is the OS or the GeForce drivers, but I don't see how it can be a a one-off coincidence twice within 24 hours

Mr Fox is very well respected, and knows his hardware stuff and has no problem modding software files of drivers as needed. I have spoken with him before on stuff. He knows what he is doing.

Friend of mine has a different problem with Alienware desktop systems. W10 install enables both VGA and HDMI display ports even though you only have one monitor plugged in, with the main desktop being on only one side (HDMI, I think). So after the install, if your monitor is on the VGA port, you're left with a black screen and a cursor with no menu or icons. It basically looks like a failed install unless you know to swap display ports.

No I know why they are giving win10 away.....Not even Microsoft has the nads to charge for it.

I installed W10 on one machine as it had the "free offer". It was a self install with little input from me and obviously provided little opportunity to add/delete options. It was on the machine for about one hour and I was so frustrated by several small items that I reverted back to W7 (which you can do within the first 30 days after install of W10). I will wait until the inevitable SP1, and then maybe I will reconsider.

As more are installing W10 it seams that other brands are having problems too. This auto updating of the drivers is killing a lot of computers , mostly laptops from what I have read. Bad drivers, BIOS and LCD 's to name a few things.
