Hello all I'm looking for some help with an issue I have with a friends laptop. It's an Alienware Area 51 m9700i-R1 series. (M7950). The video card is nearly dead it has loads of articfacting and locks the computer when he tries to run anything graphic intense at all. We ordered him a replacement card off ebay, a 7600go. I know the card isn't as good as the 7950 that it's replaceing but at this point he just wants the laptop to work and he didn't want to spend much money. So the card arrived today after 15 days shipping and after I installed it for him I get no picture at all. Nothing. So I went to the ebay listing to email the seller and let him know the card is DoA when I saw in the listing description the sentence "some computers may need updated bios". So I figured before i pack up the card and send it off why not update the bios and see if it pics up the card. So long story short does anyone have the latest bios for this motherboard? I have tried navigating the AW website and the dell site with no luck. Any help or thoughts appreciated. thanks.
