    I have the new Alienware Quicksilver m17x. It has dual 260m's inside but I'm not using them. I'm stuck with the onboard 9400m. I noticed sli disappeared when "Test Mode" appeared in all four corners of the screen. I have drivers 186.21 installed. The laptops mainly saying that the gpu's are not there. I tried lookin through all the drivers on the site and on disc but no luck. I tried seeing if I can find info online. Nothing.

    Please help!

    your laptops booting into test mode - hit F12 when it loads to go to your boot selection screen, hit your harddrive as the selection then instantly press F12. Should be able to select last known good configuration and you'll be back to normal.

    I tried that and nothing happens. After I select hard drive it boots normal w/o the option of selectin last known good config, but still says test mode.

    download and run that... it will allow you to disable test mode...

    yep... I would run a spyware and virus scan just for good measure, if you didn't enable test mode manually - and it just popped up one day.

    Thanks phanbuey. That did it. It got the test mode off. All I got 2 do now is get the laptop to see the gpu's. So I can run in sli and not on-board.
