Please Note:
  • Windows Vista Ultimate is installed. I tried to upgrade to Windows 7 at one point but got a blue screen when I tried, so I restored back to Windows Vista, which seems to work fine. I may have done something wrong during my attempt to upgrade Windows, but I can't be sure.
  • The keyboard works fine, but the keyboard lights only partially light after an attempt to upgrade the firmware using incorrect drivers failed. I am not sure how to change the firmware back, but I suspect doing so should restore the keyboard lights to their original fully-lit state.
  • The battery does not appear to be working. The laptop was packed away for about 4-5 months and when I used it again, disconnecting the power cable caused power loss, leading me to believe that the battery is either faulty, or there's a loose connection between the battery and the laptop, but you'll have to investigate to confirm this. eBay sell spare batteries for this particular laptop for around £50, so this is easily restored.
  • Comes with an Alienware cloth cover and the original owners manual with discs.
Postage & Delivery:

The laptop will be sent via Parcelforce 48 or you're very welcome to come and collect the laptop from the M20 area of Manchester (South Manchester).

Please note - Although the listing says that the laptop comes with the original box, after looking for it, it seems to have gone elsewhere. The laptop will still be boxed and packaged extremely well for it's journey though. 

Again, please no messages asking for Buy It Now prices. The laptop will be staying on auction - Thanks...
