After upgrade to win10, GPU driver became unstable (freezes, blue screens, crashes, Radeon control center not responding...) tried everything, OS clean install, drivers reinstall with DDU, tried any version of Catalyst and Radeon Crimson, others drivers upgrades and version, contacted several times Dell support. Finally i made a clean install of win 8.1....problem solved, it seems these specs are not compatible with win 10, that's all.

RE: Alienware 15 not compatible with win10

Hi emanuelfiorenza,

Appreciate your efforts. If reinstalling the operating system helped, then it is something to with driver compatibility or OS issue.

Please refer http://dell.to/1Y2lMlk to check if your system is Windows 10 Anniversary compatible. You may also check http://dell.to/2mwftdF to see if the system model is listed under Windows 10 and Windows 10 November Update.

Incase it is tested, do let us know we will be glad to help you further.
