Updating alienware 7700 bios
My Alienware contains 4 Card Readers built-in on the side of the laptop.
Doing research in my BIOS, I turn off the Card Reader.
Having blogged it, hopefully I’ll remember this in six months when it’s time to change my OS again (kind of like regular maintenance on car).
I could swear I saw a video of someone doing exactly what you have asked, but no I cannot find it. My board came with 1102 so i was in the clear and didnt have to worry too much about it. Corsair Carbide 540 Air ~ AMD FX 8350 ~ Asus Crosshair V Formula Z ~ 1901 BIOS ~ Corsair Dominator Platinum 2400 MHz 2x8 Gb CMD16X3M2A2400C10 ~ EVGA GTX 780 Ti SC ~ Corsair AX860i PSU ~ Samsung 840 Pro 256Gb SATA 3 SSD ~ WD 4 TB 7200 RPM 64 MB ( RMA'd ) ~ Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum ~ Corsair SP2500 2.1 Gaming Speakers ~ 27 Samsung SA550 HD LED Monitor ~ The Crosshair has a rog connect switch, it is not a button, many people in this forum have stated they could not upgrade their bios through the switch I won't start a new thread to ask about it, but I've seen the DRAM QVL pdf, and I''m about to buy a ram KHX1600C9AD3B1/2G however it isn't listed, is it compatible?
what should I be aware about if I use this memory if it ain't in the QVL list?
The laptop came to me with 2 Sea Gate 120GB IDE HDs.
During the laptop booting process, "Fast Track" was not detecting any HDs connected to the laptop.

Attempting to reinstall XP afterward, all 4 "Unknown Disc" messages disappear only for me to recieve a message claiming no HD was detected for Windows to be installed on.
