I have a relatively new Alienware Aurora, and right after my warranty expires it starts acting weird.
I get random full scale crashes - sometimes while in the middle of a game and other times when doing far less demanding things like watching Netflix.
That isn't even the annoying part. The annoying part is that after these crashes windows will fail to boot. I tinkered around the first time it happened in BIOS and noticed that for some reason the boot options had been changed around. Windows boot manager had been pushed to the bottom so I switched it back as it was and the PC started normally with no problems.
It really doesn't happen all that often but it is a pain to go into BIOS every time. So it really isn't a super problem but I'm honestly curious as to why this keeps happening and why a crash would mess with BIOS settings. Faulty hardware? Idek.
PSSSTTTTT: Including DxDiag in attachments in case that's helpful.
