I love my three year old M17x R4, but I have had a heck of a time with it over the last year. When I purchased my laptop, I had three glorious years of in home service. That expired last March.
Last summer, Dell replaced my motherboard THREE TIMES in a four month span, the last being not quite a year ago in September of 2015. My motherboard has again fried out with no warning, and I am in the lurch with my machine as it is no longer supported by Dell or Alienware.
I am at a loss here. Has anyone else experienced a repeated failure of a motherboard like this? Better yet, can anyone recommend a reputable source for a refurbished motherboard?
