    My XPS 13 came with one stuck pixel out of the box, as well as profuse light bleeding on both left and right sides. Called Dell yesterday and they are sending a tech with a replacement screen today. However, something still does not sit right with me. Is this gap between the touchpad and the body normal?

    Hello RFID.

    I would say the gap is still 'normal' (it can be done better, yes, but it's not done really bad)

    I also have a faulty screen (at least, I hope I am not imagining things).

    I am hesitating to replace the screen
    (a) because i suspect the new screen to have similar issues
    (b) that it leaves permanent scratches on laptop to remove the screen.

    Can you let me know how they removed the screen? I have the FDD with plastic borders. I saw on youtube that for glass screens they have to remove glue with heat etc. Not sure if the FHD screen is much easier? Can you describe the process?

    Also, can you perhaps compare your two screens. How much difference is there in screens?

    I think the FN buttons are standard linked to media options (volume, media, brightness); you can either turn off this option in bios; or use ALT+FN+F4

    What kristof1234 said, basically. You can go to BIOS and have it set so that the function keys will not require the FN key to function as intended.

    @kristof1234
    Thank you for the reply. Mine is the i5 FHD model though. The problems on my screen are pretty noticeable (the bleeding and that one pixel near the center) and I suspect it's a mounting issue (for the bleeding.)

    Mine is FHD and they occupy about 80% of the side for the right edge.

    aye. 80 % is too much. up t0 about 15-20% i'd consider as normal for this machine.
