I have an alienware m17x.
i7 920 xm
256gb Samsung SSD
Win 7 Ultimate x64
The error occurs randomly. My drivers
, bios, and vbios are all up to date. I have had a new motherboard installed. I've ran memtest for 9 passes and nothing. I ran prime95 for 26 hours and nothing, but when stopping and coming back to the laptop 10 min later I lost USB functionality.
It's weird because this week I saw different blue screen errors. Perfmon shows nothing but a service failed when I get it to work the few times I just lose USB/Touchpad function and the system doesn't lock up.
This is my second reinstall and I've also tried new RAM and a new SSD and nothing fixed the errors. I've tried different USB ports, different mice, and all that stuff to no avail.
I am having a new system sent to me in the next week or two but this problem really irks me so I figured I'd post up my stuff for someone to look at and maybe see what the deal is because I'm baffled. The Dell techs are terrible to say the least but I thought for sure this was memory related but it isn't.
