    Yep tried the 8536 (I have no idea what the hell they're doing with the order of thier "latest" drivers...) seems good.

    I need to go watch some YouTube and see if I have this problem. I had to install these new realtek drivers when I updated my Intel drivers. It forced uninstalled my old ones . Anyone who is having sound problems happen to install the new Intel drivers lately as well?

    Has anyone found a workaround to enable HDR for gaming on the OLED 13r3? Also, I’ve noticed Netflix doesn’t seem to support HDR on my laptop anymore (coincidentally it doesn’t work on my LG OLED anymore, but still works on my Samsung QLED and iPhone).

    My Alienware 13R3 is almost 2 years old now. I just did a battery check and noticed the wear is at 36.2%. That's a lot higher than I expected lol.

    Charge it up to 100% and drain it all the way. Do this a couple times and tell me what its at.

    Guess Extended Hardware Warranty doesn’t cover consumables like batteries. They asked me to check the BIOS settings and look at the battery health on there. Anyone know how much Dell charges (no pun intended) for a new battery?

    They are expensive and extended warranty doesn't cover batteries. You need to pay extra for battery replacement warranty that's upto 2 years. You can look at laptopbatteryexpress.com for any batteries.
