I am on my 2nd Alienware laptop this month as I returned the first one that had the identical issue and the retailer thought it might be a bad laptop.  With a strict 15 day return window I was running out of time to troubleshoot.     THIS LAPTOP vs the one I just returned: Alienware 17 R4 GTX 1080 (previous GTX 1070) i7-7820HK (previous i7-7700HQ)… (Show more)

Is this something that is just standard with this power supply/computer, could… (Show more)

Well, the title says it all, a perfectly fit machine that goes BSOD randomly. The front 2 USBs are non functioning and since windows installation installed drivers for them I'm worried that they may be the cause of the BSODs BUT I'M NOT USING THEM.
