    If you don't want Windows Update to update your bios you should disable driver updates only (dont ask me why there is uefi firmware device in device manager and windows treats this as a driver like every other device ... ) so Windows Update can be still enabled.

    Microsoft also provided tool to exclude problematic updates so if you want to have enabled driver updates you can exclude bios update, but i suppose you have to exclude it every time new verion comes out. https://www.tecklyfe.com/how-to-block-problematic-windows-updates-in-windows-10/

    Ubuntu also suggests updating bios but does not force user to do this. And removing one package resolvers problem. Much better approach and much quicker to handle.

    The problem isn't really that Windows update carries firmwares, that's a good thing, but rather that Dells updates are crap...

    Every time it wakes up from sleep the internal speaker would not be recognized anymore, any ideas on how to fix it?

    I am trying it. The DPC is definitely better. Praying that they do something about the S3 sleep too.

    Hah, I just got a 9570 in, I'll give it a shot too. If this fixes DPC, @Papusan would probably be amazed, lol...

    Is it just me that cant shake the feeling of there being some kind of "variable brightness" going on even with the 9570? I have a distinct feeling that it sometimes are not as bright as it should be, while otther times it is. And since I am on my third 9570, this really should not be about a faulty panel or something. I have a distinct feeling this usually occurs after laptop has been resumed from sleep or similar, and a reboot seems to make it better.

    (Of course I have the adaptive brighness disabled in Power plan, as it is by default these days. Also power settings in Intels CP are disabled, although that piece of software seems really buggy).

    @custom90gt LatencyMon gives the green light so far.

    If I have some time, I want to try again manually forcing S3 in windows (with @maffle registry hack) and see if the CORE0 utilization bug is still there.
