    I just unistalled my sound blaster drivers, restarted, then re-installed them to test if it would work for me. I didn't have any problems uninstalling or reinstalling the drivers. Sorry if that's not any help.

    What about his part of the update:
    1.Add Caldera SW flag for Fn+F1/S3&S4 plug in.

    I wonder if this fixes the no resume from any powerstate with the lid closed

    S3: Standby
    S4: Hibernate

    edit: nope... this is the only laptop I have ever owned that I cannot wake from sleep with the lid closed.. my 8 year old Inspiron and my few years old Inspiron 17R SE both do this fine..

    In addition to that, disable fast startup if you're on SSD.

    Thanks, which means my OS is somehow corrupt. I verified the hashes of the driver from DELL and it is perfect match. I'll a try a reinstall.

    I actually do get it to wake from sleep with a graphics amplifier attached. Using the USB3 ports on the AGA.

    Finally got around to using my GA with my laptop, and they did not fix the AMD Sleep bug (AMD GPU disconnects after the laptop sleeps for a period of time). Bummer.
    No Hibernate option either.

    Put it on a fat32 formatted usb drive and start the bios menu. Flash from there.

    Also flash with the AGA disabled.

    If you're on one of the earlier bios eg: 1.2.3 you need to update to 1.2.8 or any latest 1.2.x bios before proceed updating to 1.3.10.
