    Run Premiere Pro with the NVIDIA discrete GPU.

    My (admittedly anecdotal) evidence is that the Intel driver does not work well with the Precision: features like brightness control and colour calibration were problematic the last time I installed it, and were only fixed when I reinstalled the Dell driver over the generic Intel version.

    I believe I am running Premiere on the 7730's Radeon card. In Windows > Graphics Settings Premiere is set to use the "high performance GPU".

    You could try loading the Intel GPU drivers from the Precision 7740 or 7750 if they are newer. They may well play nice with older Dell systems and also solve this Adobe problem. Current Intel GPU drivers support CPUs all the way down to 6th gen.

    (When I have had the Intel GPU active, I haven't had any trouble using the drivers straight from Intel, but I haven't tried to do anything fancy like color calibration.)

    Thanks. I'll try this tomorrow if I have time.

    Since I'm a photographer, color calibration is key for everything I do. Fingers crossed.

    You should be able to install an earlier BIOS version. If not, check your BIOS settings, there is an option to disable BIOS downgrades., which you might need to uncheck.

    Sometimes backlight bleeding is caused if the display bezel is too tight and applies pressure on the display panel. Not sure how easy it is to fix that by yourself. You might contact Dell, if you have on-site support.
