Re: Alienware Area-51 ALX upgrade

Windows as no affect over the hardware's performance while running the self-bootable Dell 32-bit Diagnostics. It has it's own OS and drivers. If all components are detected and pass individual "exercising" and testing ... you DO NOT have a hardware problem. That is the beauty of having this tool. This custom diag-tool only works on Area51-R1 and Aurora R1-R2.
