    You must (might) have fitted it wrong so the spring actions not working.

    Mine has been going for a few months with a dab of graphite powder that came in liquid form (sticks better)

    It is very very messy and a ***** to spray without it going everywhere so I went outside and carefully let a bit out into a bottle top (with a tissue over it to stop it going everywhere) then used a toothpick to drip a tiny bit onto the hinge points.
    It is conductive so the less the better!

    So... new problem. Today, may laptop screen started flickering. It flickers every 10-15 seconds. I've tried rebooting and same issue. I did install the latest graphic drivers that were just recently released, so wondering if there's a flaw with those drivers?

    I also ran a diagnostic test on my video card and it all tested out fine. Is there a way to confirm whether it's a driver issue and if it is, how do I roll back the driver, simply re-install an older version? I'm using the drivers from the Dell support site. Am I better off just using drivers directly from Intel? I always wonder whether drivers directly from Dell are better or worse than ones provided by the actual providers of those drivers.

    The latest official Dell's are good, the latest Beta from intel are no good for us.

    And as above, the BIOS out this week's screwing up the majority of 4k panels.

    I have the 1080 version and was about to update my BIOS until I saw this. I think I will hold off on that now. Has anyone with a 1080p panel had issues after a bios flash?

    The fix should be for the 1080 panel as that had the issues.

    So should I be reverting back to the old bios? Is that even possible? What now? This is so annoying... can't tolerate this flicker... driving me nuts.

    Yes you can roll back.
    Make sure you raise a ticket so Dell get enough to take this seriously

    Is anyone having issues with the display hinge? I am not sure if I had an issue in the first place, but it seems mine developed a slight tolerance. You can move it a bit before feeling the resistance of the hinge.

    Might have to tighten some screws... Any ideas?
