RE: Alienware 14 Completely Dead
What was the solution? It looks like a capacitor overheated and failed. There are some technicians who repair this type of problem offering their service on ebay.
I have had a few computers over the years die this way. Most laptops are designed for operation in air-conditioned workspaces with temperatures less than 75F. Graphics intensive applications produce a great deal of heat, often more than the internal fans and heat-sinks were designed to handle.
