I just bought my alienware m17x r4 on the 19th of june. After three days of using the laptop now I'm getting this error below consistently. The last thing I did was update the graphics card driver from the dell website. The restart was successful but when i shut down the laptop and turned it on after few minutes this error pops up continually. In fact i have Dell Next Business Day on-site warranty till 20th June 2014. Can anyone help me with this. Thanks

Hi sandeep thanks for your reply. I have tried your method several times but i couldnt get that recovery option. It just goes back to the blue screen after the alienware logo. Since i have the 'next business day on-site warranty' i have actually contacted dell support a while ago and they have organised someone to visit my place tomorrow. I hope they can fix the problem. What really bugs me is that after saving money for almost six months to buy this laptop and all i get is a blue screen in just 3 days of use

Hey Sandeep I'm facing issues with the dell technical support. I called you guys on sunday close to mid night and i asked the guy whether the technician will come on Monday as i had the NBD on site warranty but he told me that he will be here on Tuesday since i called him very late on Sunday. And on Tuesday no one came to my place. I gave dell a call again and they said sorry for the inconvenience we'll send a technician by Wednesday (i.e. today). Well no one turned up today as well. Called dell again and the guy said we are only sending you a backup DVD and you'll get it soon. Seriously i spend 2000$ for a laptop and it gets crashed in 3 days of use for just updating a driver and now the support given by dell is really underrated considering that i also have the dell premium warranty. Can you look whats going on Sandeep. I can provide you with my service tag.
