I have recently purchased an m14x from dell. At first I had no real issues, but it seems that whenever I'm doing something that requires the internet, it will randomly freeze up, forcing me to hard boot. I've used multiple system diagnosis programs; all clean. I've restored my system to factory settings; same issue. I've re downloaded the proper drives multiple times, but nothing seems to be working.
Is there something I'm missing, or should I just send it back?
We need to see the results of the Dell Alienware diagnostics.

Well I'm currently running in safe mode like a dell tech support personnel advised me to(so i can't run diagnostics), and I just got this error code in place of of the freezing. What does it mean?

I found the problem after talking to tech support. Apparently I my computer came with a dead wifi chip. Is there any reason that it didn't show up in my AlienAutopsy report?
