Sounds like someone put in a different hard drive from a different pc. I used to have that problem switching hard drives from computer to computer. Always ran tge boot disk to load in the directory and worked fine after that.

Just curious, have you tried another PSU? Some variants of that GPU recommend 30A on the 12v Rail. I know that those listed requirements are usually somewhat 'safe' but I've not had the best experiences with Thermaltake either (horribly inefficient).

Alienware is never worth what you pay. I looked at buying an Alienware with all the specs my current pc has and would've paid about $2000 more than what I paid for my current pc, which I built. Alienware just over charges you because they are "Alienware" and make "Beast PC's"... don't buy a gaming desktop, just build it if you can.

Bad thing is old p4.s would overclock great..before Northwood..i had a double 100 percent 1.6 p4 using a vapochill case... And a killwr 2.0 p4 I had would overclock to 3.8ghz on water...backnthen we had to build our own wateeblocks with either a drillpress or mill There arent real overclockers anymore...u couldn't turn up ram voltage back then..u had to cut circuits on motherboards and add resisters or pots....and imaging no pci devider... Now I just buy sealed water colling systems..man imagine looking for pumps at aquarium shop. Or home depot pond pump. Inwas hitting 5.2gz out of 3.6p4s. Now just add more cores..and someone gets a 20= mhz overclock through bios..they think they are overclocking got Early 2000s rant over now..and ur lucky I didnt hit my late 90s 300 slot 1 Celeron overclocking rant

This is the PC that got me into PC gaming, and i still stand by it being my best memory ever. (this Alienware looks way early 2000's? mine was late 2008 ish era) This is a very early revision to this version of the Alienware area 51 I had as my first pc, mine didn't have the lock on the front, didn't have these 4 lower USB ports, Didn't have the power/activity indicators and such in the front and the side of the case looks to be a slightly different design. I used mine in its stock spec until September 2015, it had a Asus P6T deluxe V2, i7 920, two GTX 260 core 216 editions (1792mb vram versions) and 6GB ram and it originally came with two 500gb hardrives in raid 0. I got the PC in the above spec for £850 in late December 2009 (ebay second hand) In 2012 ish the hardrive setup died and i upgraded to a 120gb ssd like we all did back then and threw in a then huge 3TB hardrive as storage and another 6GB ram and overclocked to the best i could get the 920 too That 3TB hardrive died in 2014 after only 2 years service, but i replaced it with two 2tb drives In september 2015 when i got my first paycheck i bought a GTX 970 and slapped that in replacing the 7 year old GTX 260's Then march 2016 I Upgraded all the internals to a Z170 Asus Pro gaming, i7 6700k, 16GB ram, Evo 212 cooler and a new power supply (this case actually has some weird over sized power supply that's larger than standard so there was a gap above or bellow the supply) Whenever the NVME Samsung 960 released i got the 500gb model instantly as i was super hyped for it's release, it's still cool and damn, it's alot cheaper now lol Then in April 2017 I wanted to give my then girlfriends PC my 970 as a upgrade so i got a 1070 for £320 New off some lad who won it in a competition (replacing her two GTX 260's (hint hint)) But that Alienware only had that 1070 for a breif time, only 2 weeks passed and i ordered a Thermaltake core P3.... and the Alienwares fate was sealed after me owning it for 7 years and 4 months :( now he sits in the original Alienware dust cover in the bottom of my wardrobe, gutless, waiting for me to get the PC parts back from my Ex Ex so i can rebuild it to it's OG spec

Buy an AGP video card from around that era to show us how it's aged (probably a $20 investment in a great video), and then rebuild it. Do something like a 4th-gen i7 if you want to flip it and go Ryzen if you want to really modernize it.

I own one of these. I replaced the graphics card and power supply about 6 years ago, the motherboard, CPU and Memory about 2 years ago. I am running Windows 8.1 on it and it works fine, and I am watching this video on it now. I do want to update the graphic card again soon. Taking it to the local computer store does attract a lot of people who want a closer look at it, a real conversation piece.

The x1950 Pro was brilliant back in the day, last gasp of the AGP cards, and tbh kept it running for aaaages till my RAM packed in. Tbh i think it's still in one of my old boxes of PC bits lol Definitely vote for a Q6600, + Mobo and throw in whatever card you can get on the cheap. My kids on a Q6600 with 8Gb DDR3, 120Gb SSD, and a GTS450 and scary what that thing can still manage to run, and run very well.
