when the alienware starts and boots to the desktop the CPU fan runs at max speed for just a few seconds and windows stalls for a few seconds as well. this is a brand new alienware. I had to send it off to be worked on and before then I never remember it doing this. turbo mode was turned on in the bios somehow I disabled it but it still does it every time I restart the PC. I am worried that someone dropped it but I see no sign of that.. does anyone know what could make this happen? maybe an update of some sort?? its a i7 4710QM... I don't know why it would just start doing this. it only does it for a few seconds and then everything is normal.. HELP?!? Thanks...
