    Hey guys, I've been searching around trying to find anyone running into a similar situation as I am.
    When I play any streaming videos on any browser (tested on Chrome and Edge), video plays fine but if I attempt to skip forward, it would just get stuck loading.

    I've tried disabling fastboot, multiple restarts/shutdowns. Any ideas on how to fix or anyone facing the same issue?

    Hey i dont normally post but thought i would i would help with some info here.
    I have the XPS15, 4K, 512, i7, 16GB from MS.

    BIOS: I had issues with 1.2.10, 1.2.0 is the best one out yet i believe, silent fans for the most part and working.
    1.2.10 had:
    * Fan on more than needed
    * Temp issues
    * Brightness flicker

    SSD: I dont have GREAT performance, but the best combo i could get was:
    * ACHI
    * Samsung NVMe drivers

    Screen:
    My first screen had red tinting, 2nd scree had red tinting and i could see the lines and dots of the touch panel, 3rd screen, i have a slight blue tint but i cant complain.
    Also has a bit of a "backlight bleed" on the top left corner, but i dont want to risk getting a worse screen.

    My current model is the same posted here, except that AIDA64 does not show the Monitor Name for me, but the rest was the same.
    Hope this helps

    Does anyone have a good method to rollback to the previous BIOS, 01.02.00, or a download link? Upgraded to the latest, 01.02.10, without checking, and forgot to keep a copy of the stable BIOS. The flickering/removal of the lowest brightness level on my 4k screen has significantly worsened my experience. Thanks

    I sent in an email to premium phone support (yeah I know but it is part of the premium support deal) on the 5th and as I had no answer I sent a rather rude and frank email yesterday telling a manager to call. I got a very english speaking manager on the phone last night who of course wanted to send a tech to rip the laptop apart and bodge in a replacement motherboard. Naturally I refused pointing out my qualifications and diagnostic steps.

    He tried to tell me I was the only one with this problem so after I stopped laughing at him I pointed out this thread existed after being told he saw nothing on the Dell forums (I gave my reasons why the Dell forums are a joke) and said I would request everyone here who fell foul of the latest BIOS to email PremiumPhoneSupport@Dell.com explaining the situation regardless of the level of cover they have.
    So please do that :)
