Re: {MOVED}Alienware m17xR3 big problem

so when you installed this new 6990m did the engineer do a clean sweep of all the nvidia drivers ? or did you just install the drivers over the top of them ? because that could be the route of your problems

if you decide to keep the machine ( which in my eyes as someone has already stated the 6990m is a far more powerful card than the 560 you received ) i would do a fresh install of windows and re-apply all your drivers and install 12.7 ATI drivers and you may find all your problems will go away

Re: {MOVED}Alienware m17xR3 big problem

i don't think you quite understand schneeball... i did not install it, it came with the Alienware, i did not request this the 6990m as Nvidia's manufacturing is far superior, even tho its less powerful and the AMD 6990, the Nvidia is lass likely to brake (because of the way its made)

but insted i was sent the wrong graphics card rather than the one i specifically ordered.

you may think differently but what i choose is what i want. and after running around for 3 weeks through the support section i just want to send the product back and get a Refund. that's all i want to do now, simple.

Re: {MOVED}Alienware m17xR3 big problem

oh right sorry my bad i thought you had a replacement , it must be the way you wrote it out . sorry about that.

unsure on the manufacturing that nvidia is far superior , i would say the driver support is better but the build quality would be to the same standard .

but yes your right if thats what you ordered and thats what you want then you have every possible case on returning it , you need to contact AW support if thats the case , as chris said this forum is more of a support side

Good luck sorting it , but i wouldnt keep waiting i would be ring daily and maybe get in touch with customer services as you only have a limited time in returning it
