After purchasing quite a few Dell machines recently there was a somewhat alarming thing I noticed….
Around 15% of them still had plastic film in the computer somewhere. In most cases it wasn’t in an alarming location, but I have had video cards with the entire back plates still wrapped in plastic. Takes 2 seconds to peel it off but if you didn’t check then it could cause serious issues.
So if you have a Dell or Alienware from the recent deals pop open your case and check! The video card has been the most common place.
