Dell® Alienware® Area-51 Blue Screen
Dell Alienware Area-51 Blue Screen Problem With Windows® 7
Dell® is a premium brand of high-end computer systems. The Dell Alienware Area-51 is among the top of the line presentations from Dell® and is a very coveted product. With an incredible amount of processing power packed in it is one of the most coveted and sought after computer systems. However, recent spates of problems with the Dell Alienware Area-51, namely, the blue screen of death, have been causing a few niggles. This article tries to outline the causes of the blue screen of death and a few tips on how to avoid it.
We will be looking into the following causes:
- Bad Game Play
- Automatic Command Center Updates
- Incorrectly Seated Memory
- Conflicting Hardware/Software
Bad Game Play
Dell Alienware Area-51 is a gaming machine and is extensively used for gaming. However, most of the PC games in the market currently had never been written for use with Windows® 7 and tend to work best with Windows® XP and Windows Vista®. Most new games are still incorporating patches for use with Windows® 7. Although, due to Windows® 7 backward compatibility allows most games to run OK, but, it is not uncommon to see a game crash and result in a blue screen. It is highly advised that you do not run any illegal copies of a game. Buying legal games and incorporating patches makes sure that your game play experience remains smooth and avoid the blue screen. If you still encounter the problem, you can look into getting professional computer support.
Automatic Command Center Updates
Another often-overlooked problem is the Dell Alienware Area-51 command center software. The command center is proprietary software and is used to control the lighting effects, hardware behavior, accents and temperature profile of the Dell Alienware Area-51. Any update to the command center is bound to have an effect on how the customized hardware behaves. Often an update causes the keyboard and mouse/track pad to change behavior but the hardware interface under Windows® 7 needs to be reset in order to achieve this.
Incorrectly Seated Memory
Another obscure reason, due to which the Dell Alienware Area-51 encounters the blue screen immediately on booting up is due to incorrectly seated memory. This maybe due to a rare manufacturing defect on part of Dell® or due to any physical shocks experienced by the Dell Alienware Area-51. Although, not directly related to the Windows® 7 operating system, incorrectly seated memory (RAM or HDD) is often the cause for blue screen being encountered during start up. Fixing the memory seating problems is beyond most computer owners and lies in the domain of geeks and nerds. We would advice professional technical support for dealing with such issues.
The Dell Alienware Area-51 is prone to internal hardware and software conflicts due to its very nature of being an assembled computer system. Also, the release of newer Windows® 7 has caused these mismatches and conflicts to precipitate to the surface by exposing the inherent mismatches at a software level. Though earlier versions of Windows® (till Windows Vista®) provided one hundred percent backward compatibility, Windows® 7 is closing the door on backward hardware and software compatibility. These factors when combined result in a combination for a potential device or driver failure and ultimately culminate in a blue screen. Such compatibility issues need to be addressed with care to keep your Dell Alienware Area-51always fired up and ready for action. The inherent nature of complexity of these issues calls for professional technical expertise that can be reached out to in an instant and keep your Dell Alienware Area-51firing away.
