Ok I love my new laptop overall but I have one issue that is bugging me. I'll simply say what I do to load up the machine.
I turn it on and it loads up with the alienware boot screen just fine, but then the screen goes black and Windows 8 64 bit doesn't come up... I then have to close the lid and let the laptop go into sleep mode, after it is in sleep mode I open the lid and then Windows 8 loads up right away to the Windows Login screen.
I would appreciate any and all help on getting this issue resolved so it will fully boot up without having to go into sleep mode each time first.
Request you to use the below link and update video drivers:
Click on drivers and downloads, select operating system and download video drivers corresponding to the video card that you have.
You may also try using a known good external monitor and check if it works.
Do reply with your answers.
I know it's been a while since I made my post and you responded, but I am guessing it was a windows 8 issue. After a bunch of Windows 8 updates it started to work perfectly. But I would just like to say the video driver tip you gave me did not work. Hopefully the windows 8 update that fixed my issue has fixed this issue for others that might of had it. Or I am just lucky and will take what I can get with windows lol.. *knock on wood*
Thanks for the help though, it was greatly appreciated.
