Inspiron 17 7000 is very loud when gaming. Attempting to change Thermal setting to anything besides the default in Dell Power Manager shows a warning messager.
Warning: Unable to apply the selected Thermal Management setting
Is there a way to set this setting in the Dell Power Manager for this computer?
Dell have released a new bios to fix this exact issue of not being able to change thermal settings.
My laptop is 15 7000 series Model 7580 ,latest bios is 1.7.0 and fixes the issue.
Assuming your updates are the same as my model this bios sorts the problem.
Please check model specific downloads for bios for your model.
