    Verify the game files and if that doesn't work reinstall. Sometimes files don't get redownloaded when a game is copied. I used to transfer game data all the time. Slow internet FTW!

    Did you install latest IRST(Rapid storage driver)? Uninstall older drivers before installing new ones.

    Thanks for sharing this..........

    The IME driver's description says for R4 and R5 support. Did it install on the R3?

    Also, I did try that Dell/Nvidia driver but it wouldn't install on my 980M (I have the latest GeForce driver from Nvidia instead). Are there any benefits from this specific Dell/AW nVidia driver?

    Installed with no issues both drivers. It's not the main ME driver, but the INTEL HECI. They are for the r3 also, since it is on the driver pages for the r3.

    You have to uninstall your current nvidia driver in order to install the driver provided by dell.

    New bios released to day. Earlier than expected. Will flash and see if I notice anything different.

    The flash is completed... Everything went as expected and was a bit faster than previous versions it seems.
    The IME is updated, see comparing to 1.6.1 down bellow:
