    Does anyone have an old battery that you can remove the rubber foot for me please? Mine is missing one and Dell told me I need a whole bottom cover.
    Thanks

    is it possible to use the Dell Wireless 1550 802.11AC WLAN Bluetooth 4.0 Combo on a M6700 ? (it is used on M6800)
    Bluetooth doesn't seem to work, no drivers seems to be recognised
    Has someone already tried to use it on M6700 ?

    I have used it without any problem. Except, I had to unplug the Bluetooth module that came with the M6700 (it is separate from the Wi-Fi card, unlike newer models)... It seems to cause a conflict in Windows if there are two Bluetooth radios installed.

    Thank you for the feedback, could you tell me which drivers you have used ?

    For Bluetooth, I didn't have to install anything in particular, Windows 10 either had it built-in or silently pulled it from Windows Update...

    it's strange because i'm running win10 as well and it didn't manage to find the driver...
    I have tried all driver provided by dell's support website but none has worked, i managed to make it works with Lenovo drivers but at reboot both wifi and BT were off.
    i will try again this evening

    Is anybody running Oculus Rift on their M6700? I have an M6700 upgraded with 980M, but the Rift doesn't start over the HDMI nor the DP through an HDMI adapter (some bandwidth error is reported in the log file).

    If I understand correctly, M6700 should support HDMI 1.4?

    Yes, it should support HDMI 1.4. And to confirm, I've used it with 4K at 30 Hz which should only be possible with HDMI 1.4 and up...
    Don't have a Rift sitting around to try :p

    Was it a custom resolution or it was available by default? Because I expected the 30Hz thing too, but when I connected my 32" 4K monitor via HDMI, it puts it into Full HD only and there's no 4K option.
