Hi,

Just got my first Alienware laptop. Really , really well built IMHO.

Anyhow, I have an issue with the 1 TB hard disk where it will intermittently not
show up after reboot. When the problem happens, bootup is slowed down as it
is looking for the disk. The SSD boot drive is always OK.
No disk errors in event logs. I think the hard drive is OK
Tried downloading latest Intel chipset drivers. Same issue.

Anybody else see this? IF so what did you do to fix it?

Remove or update Kionix Freefall software. Have not seen disk issues for 2 days since update.

Also buggy Intel native video driver keeps crashing. It seems to be the driver for Win8( I'm
running Windows X)

FInally I get a nice loud buzz in my minijack connected speakers from the Soundblaster audio
whenever it boots up. I also get a smaller buzz when loading a game.

Hopefully these issues get fixed with updated drivers in near future.

Other than that very nice gaming laptop. Display is incredible
