Great! Thanks for letting us know. Smiley Happy

It seems that Microsoft are going to extend the Free Upgrade to Windows 10 so if you feel like risking it see here:

It might run more stably on RS1. However the causes of the common Windows 10 - Black Screen are most likely due to the fact that the system is missing a UEFI BIOS Update that'll unfortunately probably never be released.

Most PCs are becoming Touch these days... You can easily disable a Touchscreen functionality via the Device Manager.

My 2710 is the non-touch screen version. It was purchased in  March 2013. Would this make it more suitable to running Windows 10? Meaning would windows 10 would run properly?

I think the issue people are having is more due to the UEFI BIOS then the actual touchscreen but its been hard to trace down completely...

Why won't Dell just provide an updated BIOS then?

Dell had to make decisions on which systems to support for Win 10 and which not to support. The XPS 2710 was probably deemed too old for further updates.

And it may be more than just BIOS issues. If I remember correctly, Dell installed a total of 6 different motherboards in the XPS 2710, depending on which version of Windows the system was to be shipped with and whether the system had a hard-wired add-in video card on the motherboard or only had Intel Graphics on the CPU.

Complicated, to say the least...

RoHe is correct (as usual!). Engineering set the list of which systems we would support with Windows 10. You can see under XPS Desktop that the XPS 2710 was not approved.
