Ok I have owned my new alienware 18 for awhile 2/15. It came basic so I could buy a upgrade here and there, then install. I am great with hardware but software I am a noob lol. I lift the screen, hit the power button and it starts to load fast. once I start to log in my HDD light stays on and it freezes for a minute or 3. Then bam its loaded and running, There was a Toshiba 1TB HDD for the first year then I rebooted and installed a new Samsung 2TB HDD. ran like new for 4 months and is now doing the same thing over again. I have ran my avg anti-virus as well as all my maintenance tools. nothing seems to help and no errors are found. is there a GOOD HDD that I don't know of ? I also have a Samsung 500GB backup HDD with a LITEON 80gb SSD. Can you run a OS on SSD? Only upgraded ram and 1 HDD as stated.. its very glitchy and unresponsive until it like "kicks in?"
Thank you for any information or 2 cents! more or less curious and finding it annoying lol
