    Has anyone tried the new Intel DCH drivers on the 7530? Also, does the download link not show up until you've uninstalled the standard driver? All I see is the release notes download link.

    Hmmm. I think it's a bug; you can probably disregard the update (I mean, they sent out two updates for the same device, so...)

    You might have missed the note highlighted in RED:

    See @Ionising_Radiation's highlight. You don't have to uninstall the standard driver but they want you to go through the setup.exe process and not Device Manager to install the DCH driver the first time (the setup will clean up some stuff relating to the legacy driver). I'm using the DCH driver on a Precision 7510 and it seems to work fine.

    Hmm, well, I guess I will. Everything seems to be running well at the moment.

    No, my 7530 has Optimus off and the Intel GPU is not used.

    I finally received my computer (7530) last week. It conforms to my expectations, but the screen is of a very poor quality.

    The brightness is low and not uniform. By sitting precisely in front of the screen, the brightness is lower in the lower side of the screen. I feel like I have a privacy filter on the screen when there is none (not as much, but that's what it looks like)! The angles of vision seem very low and no color is homogeneous (especially light colors).

    It's like I'm working on an old TFT screen of 10 years ago. What a disappointment to have chosen the high end option (UltraSharp UHD IGZO, 3840x2160, full description in the screenshot) and to have this rotten screen! :tears:

    The icing on the cake: there are several dead pixels at the top of the screen and some (small as 4k) in the middle. Fortunately, they are only visible on dark screens (especially black).

    In your opinion, can I request a screen replacement? :vbconfused: What should I do?

    You can request another screen but you'll probably get another Sharp, that's the only one I've seen for the 4K screen from people reporting model information. (The 2015 manufacture date is also normal, they must have a pile of these sitting around somewhere...) Still, if you have stuck/dead pixels you absolutely can request a replacement, I've done this with my past two personal Dell laptops which both had screens issues upon arrival.

    Unfortunately, the limited viewing angle seems to be normal with the 4K screen, mine has that too... It bothered me at first but the more I used the laptop, the less it bothered me. Otherwise the color seems pretty good to me. (Note: I'm not a graphics person, I do code...)

    The other option is to find an aftermarket 15.6" eDP display (different model with better qualities) and swap them out.

    Are owners of 7730 UHD having similar issues with the screen?
