A couple of months ago i had gotten an alienware aurora alx r4 - could play anything, i got Battlefield 3 and had an error where small dots of white with small gap between each would appear and a buzz sound from the speakers, i assumed it was possibly my drivers or graphics card, and it happened at random.
could play for maybe 20 mins then sometimes 5, i gave up on bf3 thinking it may have been the game seeing as i seen on other posts it could have been Realtek audio, i now tried playing The secret world and its doing it on this, but soon as i log into the game i didn't understand why so i've disabled my realtek, same problem, i've reinstalled drivers, games etc still to no success.
opened up my computer and monitored fans etc all working fine and my alienware control panel says nothings overheating ? i just need some help if anyone has some ideas.
And to do that you'll probably have to go into the Advanced System Settings (from the control panel or your system properties), click on Settings for "Startup and Recovery" and uncheck the "Automatically restart" option.just brew it! wrote:If you can give us more details (what is displayed when you get the BSOD?) we may be able to help you narrow things down a bit.

For a one-shot picture, imgur.com is even easier (especially if you don't already have a flickr / yahoo account). Note also that to post an img tag here you need a direct link to the image (jpg / gif / png) which flickr technically doesn't allow per its TOS (it's still quite possible to do, and I've never heard boo from them when I've done it, but we probably shouldn't be encouraging it).Arclight wrote:Flikr dot com?Codesta wrote:[...] I have an image of it, not quite sure how to put it on here ?
