    Dell wants to gut my unit and replace the mobo. I go back to college in three weeks ;( tight schedule.

    Since I have a first batch unit I asked about a replacement unit instead and requested they test the thermals and screen bleed on whatever gets sent back.

    Probably dug in here somewhere, but is there a place other than dell to get new nvidia drivers? The nvidia drivers from nvidia will not install for me.

    Switch from standard to DCH.
    After running DDU, if the gpu cannot be found use windows device manager to search for drivers. get the basic microsoft drivers to recognize the gpu then install the new nvidia drivers.
    Also try uninstalling intel integrated graphics drivers first if it cannot find the nvidia gpu.

    That awkward moment when a 2080 in a laptop is faster than a full blown 7nm Radeon VII in most of the games...

    ;)

    I'm looking forward to this test, please do keep us updated brother. Love your videos too...

    What I'm saying is, opt out of any and ALL thermal upgrades and do it yourself later on.

    They install perfectly fine. You can install GeForce Experience and after getting latest drivers, just get rid of geforce experience.
