    Repasted 7730 today. Some observations:
    1.) Two (keyboard) screws were missing.
    2.) One Palmrest screw (under keyboard) was missing.
    3.) Heatpad installed on PCH with connection to Palmrest (metal). But palmrest is covered by isolation material.
    4.) Heatpads installed on heatsink have no connection to CPU VRMs (!)
    Fixed issues 3.) and 4.) and repasted with Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut. Decreased CPU voltage by 0.135[V]. Results for prime95.

    Hey guys any of you had this issue with audio, for example watching a youtube video, for a couple of seconds the bass goes out, and the audio sounds like a tin can? then it returns to normal?

    This wounds like it might be an issue with Waves MaxxAudio, perhaps look into turning off the "audio enhancements" offered by it and the Realtek audio driver.

    Hi there,

    Does anyone know how to boot from the recovery partition? Reason is, I just got my 7530 and I am planning to upgrade to a bigger drive. I tried booting to the recovery partition just to see if it's worth it to keep the recovery partition; but I can't seem to. I've searched and people said to hit F8 but nothing happens, I just boot right into windows. I figured, the recovery partition is there so we can boot to it (to re-install the OS), so if I can't, I'll just blow this partition away. and make a recovery usb drive instead. thanks.

    I've never been able to directly boot into the recovery partition on a Windows 10 (post 1709, at least, maybe older versions of Windows 10 allowed the F8 bypass [which dates back to Windows 95, at least]). Supposedly, it will automatically boot into the recovery partition if 3 failed boots in a row occur. I have seen that happen (it failed to recover anyways, and needed a clean wipe), but I've also seen it just bootloop endlessly, never entering the recovery interface.

    I personally rely on an Windows 10 install USB (which has the recovery interface + very limited PE included) and data backups.

    You can get to the recovery partition by having Windows fail to boot multiple times as @jeremyshaw said, or, while in Windows you can hold the "Shift" key while selecting "Restart" from the start menu to get some recovery stuff to appear, some of the options will direct you to the recovery partition for booting. It is also invoked if you start a full system reset from within Windows.

    Windows 10 really likes to have the recovery partition, if you delete it, a new one will probably show up when you install the next Windows 10 feature update (released every six months).

    I'm curious, has anyone tried to swap the ir camera into the bezel that has a 4k screen? You don't get that as an option straight from Dell but I'd love the option to log in that way.

    I don't imagine there would be any technical limitation preventing it, however you might have an interesting time finding the part to do the swap. I (thought I had) purchased a unit without a camera so I was looking into this option myself and couldn't find any part NUMBERS let alone parts for sale. Turns out Dell screwed up my order anyway and I had to get something different, but I can say I had a heck of a time trying to find the camera.

    I have a 7730 with 128GB with the Xeon E-2186M, running Windows 2019 HyperV and some VM's

    Seems fast and stable to me so far
