Can you check the temperature with the bios ?

Re: Alienware m17x shutdown problem

I have shutdown issues on m17x as well, however mine started happening after I installed new windows.

the display blacks out and the computer continues working(keyboard lights are on and alienware logo is on).

what is the definite solution to this.
