Hi, I need a desperate help here.
Purchased Alienware 17 R3 1/2016 and warranty ended 1/2017.
I was working last night and there were some short static noises and white smoke came out from the power jack connector. and my entire system shut off!!
I tried disconnected and left all power cable for 30min and tried to reconnect the cable to the laptop and I heard same static noise and smoke came out. No power .. Now What do I do??
Do you think I lost my data on HD??? Do I need to send my laptop to repair this and anyone knows the contact number? and What would be the fee if I have to pay??

What's on it and are you sure you need really it?
That machine sounds like it fried. Sometimes, you can:
- Carefully remove the drive
- Install on USB Interface (or install in another computer)
- Retrieve the data files with Windows Explorer (somtimes you have to use "Take Ownership" script (Google it).
