    notebookcheck is wrong more often than they are right. They were wrong about the power specs of the 970m as well IIRC. There is no way Nvidia will brand a 1060m with higher power requirements than a 970m. If anything that will become the 1070m.

    Hi I have been away for quite a while.

    Has anyone noticed suddenly screen flickering after the BIOS 1.2.10 ??
    Is there a fix. I searched and I think I read something like that from some people, but wouldnt mind a direct response.

    Thanks!

    go back to the older BIOS, it's the only fix.

    Yeah I've been reading more. How can they screw up something that was already working properly and fixed before?

    It was already broken, just not a total and utter car crash. It seems it was more of a fix for the FHD not the QHD, I have the QHD and have the odd flicker, with the new bios it was every couple of seconds.

    Well it never happened to me before. I've just downgraded and doesn't seem to be happening now.

    Only thing I dislike about my display is that red shade when seeing on weird angles

    how can you go into the bios menu of the dell xps 15 with windows 10
    BEFORE it boots into win 10 ?

    pressing F12 or F8 does not work...

    I want to be able to select in the boot menu to boot from hard drive or usb stick

    I also want to downgrade it to windows 7 home premium (they only had win 10 as option)
    how can I do that ? the win 10 serial key does not work with win 7 home premium...

    F12 works.

    and boot from USB too now.


    But how can I install win 7 clean again on the win 10 install from the factory?
