I'm trying to repair a 2013 Alienware M17X R4 for my son-in-law who loved it before it broke. It was beeping once when it would start up, which indicated mother board. So I bought a new motherboard on Ebay and replaced it. Now, it beeps 4 times indicating a RAM issue. When I take out the RAM, it beeps twice. I read somewhere that the original bios requires Dell RAM, so I tried ordering Dell RAM thinking I could install it, boot it up, upgrade the Bios and then the old RAM would work. But, the new RAM isn't really "Dell" brand either. I tried contacting Dell via chat and was told "The unit is 8 Years 165 Days old and End of life now. Dell does not have any support for this model now. You may check with eBay support for assistance." I can return the motherboard and get my money back for some period of time, but I'm not ready to give up. Anyone have any suggestions?
