Re: BIOS update (v1.4.4) for Alienware 15R2/17R3 - Has Broke

So version 1.8.0 (Oct 2019) was released. Is it any good?
I'm still on v1.3.12 (Aug 2017).

Re: BIOS update (v1.4.4) for Alienware 15R2/17R3 - Has Broke

No different than 1.7 in my experience.  One BSOD resulting in a shutdown in a couple of weeks (it shuts down after collecting data with no reboot when the graphics amplifier is connected and running a monitor).  That was about the frequency it happened in 1.7, and it always comes back up with no issues and no logged info other than there being a general error.  The biggest thing I noticed was that the Alienware update software knew it was there and launched an update but never actually into a bios update.  The Dell site did the same with SupportAssist.  I had to D/L the bios .exe and run it manually like I always have before.  No isses that way.  I figured maybe for once they would actually get their own installers to work.
