I have an Alien-ware 18 and everything has been going great but recently every time I turn on the laptop after about 1-3 minuets the laptop freezes and the fans turn on at full speed. Then the fans turn off and I regain functionality. After that initial fan blowout nothing else happens of note. (this is a new thing, the laptop has not ever done this before and the laptop is about a year old or less in a room that is not very hot at all).
I have flipped the laptop over and use a can of air to try and see if there was dust on anything but it is very minimal. What is going on??
If it’s because of the upgrade of the support assists, check out this [DEAD LINK /owners-club/alienware/f/3746/t/19618918]sticky and follow the steps it should fix the fan spinning issue.
