  1. Alienware turns on and able to complete the power on self test but windows not open.

If all process is complete but operating system hangs up after past the alienware logo screen then this mostly a No BOOT issue.

In this situation I recommended that

  • Check the values of BIOS default are correct for your system. To do this restart laptop and press F2 key for enter in setup and ensure the Raid/Hard Drive setting are correct.
  • If problem not solved then Run PSA Diagnostics by pressing the F12.

When everything is normal but during the startup its not shown video on laptop then this sign is a NO Video issue.

When this occurs it is recommended that you:

  • If you can access BIOS after on the laptop, then press F2 immediately. If nothing is shown there then try to run the (BIST) Built in self test.
  • For run BIST off the laptop and while pressing the power button hold the D key. Built-in self test is start. Multiple flashing colors displaying on the the screen. Now observed Video issues. After finished test laptop will restart.
  • If still your problem is not solved then connect the laptop with an external monitor for confirm it is related to laptop lcd or video card.
