WIN | type MSCONFIG | ENTER | STARTUP tab |
Uncheck ALL except for:
Script:
MSC    Microsoft Corporation    "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\msseces.exe" -hide -runkey
SynTPEnh    Synaptics Incorporated    
%ProgramFiles%\Synaptics\SynTP\SynTPEnh.exe 
REBOOT!

You have just told Win 7 to not run unchecked programs at start up time.

You have not disabled the programs. They will be run when needed.

WIN = key with the Microsoft logo on top

Are you still having crashes even with keeping your laptop cool?

MasterBinkie,

This is a thread started by Shauner.

If you have a question/problem, then be sure and start you own thread.

Sorry for the late reply, was trying out different games and seeing the effects.

unfortunately, the crashes still occur.

I couldn't get a hold of a can of compressed air, so instead I opened up the laptop and carefully took out the components around the fans, cleaned out the dust and reassembled it all again.

One thing that caught my attention, was what I saw beneath the heatsink.

I'll have an image attached of what I saw, and I'm pretty sure that WAS the cooling gel, but its solid like dried up blu-tac.. I'm pretty certain that's the CPU side of the computer.

I wasn't able to remove the other side as easily so I decided to leave it there before anything gets broken.


The laptop is working fine after I reassembled the components by the way, just the same display crash issue occuring

have you tried directing a tabletop/desktop/floor fan directly at you laptop vents?

simply install Speccy, run speccy and occasionally take a look at the temps and see how they are doing.

Oh yes, If overclocking in any form or fashion, then cease from such.

I'm trying that now with a floor fan, I'll see how it goes with that.

The temperatures are actually quite high at an idle state, with only Google Chrome and iTunes open.

CPU: 54-56℃
Graphics: 47-52℃
Hard Drive: 46-50℃

Is the gel a problem at all, like do I have to get that layer of gel removed and apply a new fresh one?

I find the temps on the high side, but not all laptops are created equal.
Best here is if some with the IDENTICAL laptop as yours steps in and relates their values.

You also might find responses in the Alienware forum. You must be careful that apples are being compared to apples which is why I capitalized "identical".

Hmm, seems like my temperatures are actually fairly good for the M15x

I'll try checking if my computer is actually overclocked, I'll reset my BIOS to default.

If that doesn't work I'll try taking out the CMOS battery for 15 minutes to reset BIOS.

I'll keep you up to date on the effects

I do not recommend removing the cmos battery. 20 years ago we did that. With a modern bios, simply telling it to set to defaults does the job. These people who tell others to remove and reinsert the bios are simply archaic.
