    Don't know if you tried this but....have you tried a complete reinstall? I know it's a lot of work but might help. Also try using official drivers from the dell website and only update nVidia drivers to latest ones and iGPU drivers to latest one.

    yeah I tried multiple installs, can only use modded drivers with the 1070 and no iGPU with 120hz edp.. Also using the dell drivers, and I tried other drivers as well.

    Never had directx be the root cause, for me it was always an audio driver holding things up.

    It could be the gpu since it's a new variable but you also suspect the es chip. Can't say for certain sorry m8

    I appreciate the help though. Thanks for looking into it. When I get home I'm going to do some GPU and CPU swapping to narrow it down.

    Well after a lot of working days I finally found a day off ... and with swapping the gpu and then the cpu no dice.. next step backup the bios from the 1060 ranger (no sound issues a16) and put it on the 1070 ranger that is giving me problems.. I just have to figure out how to do that.. hope it works..
