    Hi GonZ0,

    Just want to thank you for this amazing ISO. You've saved my partner's XPS and mine from constant BSOD.

    Unfortunately, what's weird lately is that she has higher FPS than me even though we are on the...

    Same Game Visual Settings, Same GPU, Same XPS15 9550, Same GPU Firmware Version, Both plugged in with Performance instead of Balanced. We're running 1920x1080p intead of 4K.

    She pulls 40-60fps and I pull 20-40fps.

    Would you have any idea what's going on?

    Nope. But you should check windows update hasn't been replacing drivers.

    Just got my XPS booted up on a fresh install of your iso, Cheers GoNz0! Had to download some drivers for the audio as others have said. Is there a list of other essential drivers I need or can anyone recommend any? loading of online pages seems a little unreliable. Thanks in advance guys!

    Windows update should have taken care of everything else, I had the title updated to reflect it being aimed at the 9560 as the realtek drivers fro the 9560 don't install on the 9550.

    buy one springs to mind.

    If you have a laptop that came with a pro licence it will automatically install the key for you and activate, if you have a home licence and installed pro you will obviously need to buy one :)

    @gonzo: I found this on another thread. You mentioned: "The Dell ISO is fine for most people since the creators update, how long that lasts is another story with Dell's track record."
    May I ask about dell's history a bit?

    I'm following your work over this thread as I look for ways to stabilize my laptop. Yes, I'm still working on it.
    I'm still a rookie when it comes to laptops. the XPS 15 is my first laptop, unfortunately, happens to give me a lot of headaches since March 2017. Despite all of the issues I encountered, I'm still determined to make it work the way it was when I bought it last April 2016.
    That time it was really smooth, even I updated it to the Anniversary edition when it first came out it was doing perfectly fine. I didn't encountered the bugs and glitches and errors I've read about it until March of this year came, when I updated to Windows 10 Home Version 1703.

    I'll try to contact Dell after the weekend. See what they can provide.

    Thanks.

    Dell has a track record of being utterly useless with support. Even those of us with extended premium support. The engineers they send out are untrained 3rd party paid per job so they bodge and run. The quality of spares can be as bad as sending out scrap parts and so on.

    And Windows update tends to put an older unstable Intel video driver on.
