Test songs from local HDD, CD, and youtube. Post the results. 10 months old, time to blow out the dust via the vents. Had you already done this?

It is different per model but read through your service manual. Basically I would remove the bottom plastics, blow air through the fan and out the rear vent. Good video here.

No. That is a standard practice. We ask customers to reseat hardware all the time, same thing.

I have the Cooler Master NotePal X2 Notebook Cooling Pad for my M14X.  I think it's the perfect size for it.  It's a cool looking pad as well. 

Alienware 13 - i5-4210U - 16 GB MEM - 512 GB SSD  - 2 GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M
