I have an XPS but since the power pack I have been through 5. My Alienware m17 is fine in the same household so doubt if it's power. Any idea what it could be?

If the power supply is failing then I'd look for a short on the motherboard or some other bad component which is causing it to fail.

Anything running hot to very hot? Any other indications that there is a problem?

Keep us posted
