    DST Short error from bios diagnostic.

    I've a new XPS 13 9350 with 256Gb (so PCIe) ssd and updated to latest bios 1.1.7.
    During power-on, if I press F12 to enter boot menu and then choose "Diagnostic" to run system diagnostic, I get an error "DST Short" saying that my disk is defective and must be replaced.
    If I just let it boot, windows runs perfectly fine with no disk errors.
    Can anybody check if this happens only to me (so ssd is really defective) or everyone (so the diagnostic is actually wrong) ?

    i hope you guys have figured out the lockups by now, but if not i have a good feeling its the video driver. i saw this on other forums when my new xps 13 was locking up out of the box also. it was driving me mad for a couple hours, but after reading the fix i went on the dell website, updated the display driver, and BOOM the problem was solved. has been running solid since. i've since updated everything and the laptop is running great so far.

    Hi guys have you found some alternatives for the security cable slots cables? All I can find is the Noble lock system which cost around $70 US where I live. So I am looking some cheaper alternatives, you guys have any suggestions?

    Anyone try the new network drivers (Jan 29 2016)? I got a warning that the digital signature was corrupt - will try and download again in a few days.

    They got it fixed with a new upload; trying it now.

    Broadcom driver 7.35.333.0 dtd dec 1, 2015 is inside the package. Works normally on 802.11n, no issues power on/off, sleep/wake, etc. No noticeable changes from previous version. Recommended if you have the dell/Broadcom 1560. YMMV.

    I was getting the intermittent freezes, as well as the inability to play video any time the XPS 13 went into sleep or hibernate mode. What amazingly, completely fixed both problems was the following that I read on some other forum:
    To fix windows errors problems - go to task manager, click file, run new task, enter "cmd" and check box for admin privileges. Then enter "sfc /scannow" without the quotes. This command fixes windows corrupted files. It took maybe 20 minutes or so to run, in the background while I was doing other things.

    Guys, can you share some of your power saving tips?

    I have the i5 4Gb RAM 128Gb SSD non-touch model.

    Here's what I'm doing:
    - Display Brightness: 0%
    - Keyboard Backlit: OFF
    - Battery Saver: ON
    - Background Apps: OFF

    I wonder what else others have done to maximize battery throughout the day.

    Thanks.
