    What's your original panel? And also can you adjust brightness on your new panel via Fn key?

    I got a laptop without a panel. Yes Fn brightness adjustment works great.

    Okay update on the proposed unit swap:

    7530, Xeon 2186M, 64GB ECC, 2TB NVMe (maybe two, not sure, written up weird), Quadro P3200, 1080 LCD (asking about 4K now), 97Wh battery.

    If they have no 4k display available, ask them what type of fhd does it have.

    That's because it might be a "72% color gamut" (with 'No Mic' or with 'Mic' or with 'Cam+Mic' or 'touch with cam+mic') as well as a bad '45% color gamut' (with 'No Mic' or with 'Mic' or with 'Cam+Mic').

    Swapped again. Back to 2186M, 128GB non-ECC, Quadro P3200, 2TB + 1TB SSDs, 4K/100% gamut.

    I'm taking this. Still wanna switch out for a Quadro RTX, but this is legit.

    At least now you have to purchase only the gpu (rtx 3000 ?) rather than gpu+new heatsinks+several screws.

    Yeah for sure, and with that much extra memory, maybe I can sell some or trade it for the GPU. Same with that 1TB SSD that's in there in addition to the 2TB.

    Windows Updates gave me BIOS 1.11.0 today, says it is from 8/11/2019 - hmm - not mentioned on Dell support pages - could not do much than reboot and hope. Runs OK so far.

    That is strange. I did not know that Windows Update even handled Dell Updates. I just ran the Dell Command Update tool on my laptop and I am on BIOS 1.10.1 and it says there are no new updates. Hope everything went well. Cheers.

    The display brightness keys (Fn + up/down) do not work anymore.

    Installed the latest Intel GPU driver, did not help.

    Went back to BIOS 1.10.1 and now FN + up/down brightness control is working again.
