Alienware 17 R2

Having problems with your BIOS not running your fans on you sweet new beast alienware 17 R2 from Dell?

Thank Dell for the crappy BIOS coding. If your alienware 17 has the A04 BIOS bring it to your tech guy to have it upgrades to an A05 BIOS version.

Normally, in the alienware world us tech junkies habituate we don’t recommend upgrading an alienware BIOS (due to the fact that Dell sucks ass at BIOS coding).

Turns out at least they fixed the problem for the fans not running at all in the new BIOS upgrade. If that doesn’t work I’ve been told that the old A00 BIOS (pre Dell coding, alienware guys coded that) will fix the problem.

NOTE ****flashing a BIOS is at your own risk, its a tricky creature****
