XPS 15 9550 BIOS 1.2.0
A question: Sometimes I see mouse pointer change with the " pointer loading" and system is not working with any software. No joy. Network card is a Broadcom BCM43602 Driver brcmfmac version 220.127.116.11 I've been using the March 25 release of 16.04 Desktop amd64. It's got the latest BIOS on it. :) permalinkembedsaveparentgive gold[–]fucking_snuggle 5 points6 points7 points 7 months ago(4 children)We have one Surface book, 15+ Dell XPS 15/13's. Source
Today I was working using my new Surface Book -- just working and not debugging some nonsense with my 9550 -- and I found myself smiling and enjoying my work. Improved the system stability 2. It did fix the fan noise issue but rather have that then not be able to use my usb keyboard and mouse and Ethernet port. Now, my computer keeps restarting when I try to turn it off.
the screen has stopped flickering. bigger sigh permalinkembedsavegive gold[–]metarugiaPrecision 5510 1 point2 points3 points 9 months ago(9 children)OK just got off the phone with Dell ProSupport. permalinkembedsaveparentreportgive goldreply[–]benjaminnyc 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago(5 children)Why did it say Firmware Update Failed but then shows 1.2.18 BIOS? oh well permalinkembedsaveparentgive gold[–]NobblyNobodyXPS15 9550 i7 FHD 84wh 0 points1 point2 points 7 months ago(0 children)that's odd, you've not stuck the synaptics drivers on or something rather than use MS own?
Can't be good for the laptop...? Come on DELL Techos - you can do it!!!! Can't see any difference tbh. These bios updates may fix some of those issue but I returned mine days after I got it and the reviews on dells website for it state all the same issue.
Let's hope they'll publish a BIOS update soon since it's almost September already... Error code:system thread exception not handled. Dell "says" that there is a problem with the actual screen hardware on some of these computers and have dispatched a new screen to be installed. I have purchased probably around 150 Dell Computers.
I had the dell tb15 dock and it is trash, doesn't work properly at all. Mainly: On the system setting for Displays, modify the "Scale for menu and title bars". I've never had that issue so I cannot comment on that sadly custom90gt, Apr 12, 2016 #7 SonyHome Notebook Consultant Reputations: 12 Messages: 112 Likes Received: 5 Trophy Points: 31 Keep them coming Dell!

It's maddening. I downloaded the latest NVidia driver. Each BIOS update comes with a detailed changelog with most of the fixes going to the Dell XPS 15 and various improvements for the Dell Thunderbolt Dock (TB15).

permalinkembedsaveparentgive gold[–]y0ung_chuck 0 points1 point2 points 7 months ago(0 children)there was a BIOS update released today (9/9/2016) - A13 - that claims to have fixed the battery issue. In win10 or macos the lowest two settings equal to the same, now higher, lowest brightness. v1.1.19, then going forward again - but alas - it was only short lived... :\ permalinkembedsaveparentgive gold[–]disappearink 0 points1 point2 points 5 months ago(1 child)Thank you for the help on this thread.
permalinkembedsaveparentreportgive goldreply[–]akp7 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago(0 children)Another observation on 5510 FHD..
The real question is this though, did they just increase the lowest brightness setting and divide the remaining range between each brightness level?

I would love it if it fixes all of our "For Fuck Sakes" issues and not just one. For a short period on Video=Video_Driver_9HPCK_WN32_18.104.22.16883_A07.EXE, I thought it was fixed still, but alas, that was short lived... With 1.2.14 it doesn't recover as it should, but I can least recover it by putting brightness at max value.
