    I only recently got my laptop and its still under warranty. I'd say its safer to ring dell and ask them to fix it instead of me going around and ****ing up something else.
    Thanks for your help though.

    It's up to you. But running a laptop with windows 10 and no attempt of protection against Micro$hit is a real pain. Good luck with dell. ^_^

    I made nvidia my default GPU and that seems to have stopped the stutter. Like yeh it does drain my battery a lot faster but its only a temp solution until dell fixes it.

    can you try this Intel Driver and see if it helps fix the issue:

    Intel® Graphics Driver for Windows® 10, 64-bit * [15.60] Version: 15.60.01.4877 (Latest 12/7/2017)

    I recommend you uninstall the previous Intel Driver using Display Driver Uninstaller in Safe Mode then reboot and install the new one

    Except it isn't a Dell issue....it isn't even a hardware issue. It's a known issue with Intel right now and the switchable graphics so there is nothing to "fix" on Dell's end.
