    The default is to send a technician over to do it for you.

    You can, however, request that Dell just send you the part, and you can do a self-repair. They will ask for some photo evidence, etc.

    I requested that they send the part only. I would do this for almost any part unless it was really complicated to replace. (I've been inside these machines enough that I trust myself just as much as any Dell tech.)

    They didn't request photo evidence. They didn't even want the old keyboard back. For "cheap" parts like the keyboard they will often just send it to you upon request. I used the online chat, explained my problem, and asked for the new keyboard and they shipped it overnight, no hassle.

    But the standard procedure is a technician must come to your place to replace the keyboard, do you confirm this ?

    I mean as soon as you told them you needed a new keyboard they replied saying: "ok, we must set an appointment with the technician..." to which you answered something like: "No need, i can do it by myself". Is it correct ?

    Basically yes. They will send a technician to perform any part replacement. I cut them off very early in the conversation and asked them to just send the part.

    I'm getting error Code43, I heard that if I reflash my vBios I could remove that stop code.

    Does any of you guys cand send me the stock dell 7730 - Quadro p5200 vBios? Or... do you guys know of some other fix for this error?

    Thanks!

    ...Have you flashed a vBIOS other than the stock one on this card? Flashing the same vBIOS that it already has on there is not likely to fix anything. If there is a problem with your card that persists across a Windows re-install then you should contact Dell support to have it swapped out.

    The Precision 7X30/40 notebooks have been designed well, but they are definitely a pain to open up. I do wish they had inverted the heatsink assembly so it was more straightforward to get to the real innards of the notebook.

    I have several parts incoming, and this will be a pretty massive upgrade:

    Quadro RTX 5000
    Quadro RTX 5000 heatsink
    144Hz 10-bit display (AUO B156HAN10.0)
    40-pin 0.5mm-pitch cable

    It's going to be a pretty long operation; let's see when Dell delivers my RTX 5000.

    Have you ever compared P5200 vs RTX5000?
