    keyboard doesn't work in windows (works perfectly in bios) after playing a game in VR (before that I installed the latest nvidia driver) any ideas?

    EDIT: fixed, by redownloading the driver from dell, why this happened remains a mistery

    Has there been a bios update outside the 1.5 that allows you to use both g-sync and the higher temp threshold from 1.5?
    1.5 was before they added the g-sync screen so it does not support it. It basically makes it flicker every few minutes unless you disable G-sync.

    I am not unhappy with my R1 with a 2070, but I am ticked at the fact that zero effort is being put into make any kind of 3000-series options for it. It's the least they could have done, but Dell frankly doesn't care about its customers anymore.

    Hello,

    A friend of mine have had this issue for months without any fix. He ended up using an external keyboard. What specific driver did you re-install?
    Thank you!

    The "Driver Intel HID Event Filter" I got from my product page on dell.com
    See if this link works for you.

    Yes, the download works, and I could find it on the Dell website too. I'll make sure to give it a try with my friend soon!

    If you go back and search I feel like someone on here did do it actually, and IIRC, it worked.

    Guys have a non-gsync RTX2080 ever existed in these laptops?

    Can anyone share a VBIOS dump for it?
