Re: Brand new Inspiron 7000 series gaming laptop shuts down unexpectedly on battery

Just checking - has anyone on BIOS 1.1.0 not got the shutdown/restart problem?

I went to Bios 1.1.0 and now I don't have shutdown anymore. Got some soundproblems instead, don't know if it is related to the bios tho. Getting some cracking and popping sounds now and then.

Thanks for that.  Did you downgrade from 1.2.0 or 1.4.0 and if so how did you do it? I tried to go from 1.4.0 to 1.2.0 and 1.4.0 to 1.1.0 and it was blocked by the system.

I didn't have that problem. I just downgraded by installing the bios. My first reply (page 1) I posted a link to another topic on this forum. I think there is explained how you can go from 1.4 to a lower bios number :). It is pretty messy but more to the end of that forum post you can find it I think

There is no 1.4 bios available to download. The newest 1.2

1.4.0 was there the other day - it has disappeared!

Does this mean they are actually working on a new one?

They have taken the 1.4 Bios update back off the site.  Perhaps in preparation for the new one.

I noticed they have also removed the latest Bios update (1.2), which is already installed on my system, from the XPS 13 9365 site.
