After seeing the help provided by Colin-e l l *** in the CPU speed BIOS bug thread for this model, I would like to bring the following issues with the XPS 15 9550 to Dell's attention, and hopefully receive some advice or a resolution. I'm not listing issues that are likely due to 3rd party drivers (Intel graphics crash), and they are listed in priority:
Thank you for your help
After using mine for 3 weeks my spacebar has started making squeeky noises when pressed. Another forum member had the same issue. Sad to see such poor QC on such a premium machine.
I had the coil whine and space bar problems on the first 9550 I got. I just got my replacement unit and the space bar is good, and I don't think I have the coil whine as bad. Unfortunately, I'm now experiencing the fan's running constantly while charging below 90%. It's mildly infuriating because the core temperatures will all be below 30C and it won't ever turn off until I remove the cord. The fact that my last model didn't have this issue makes me question whether it is a software problem.
I'm running the latest bios (1.0.7). This is pretty much the only problem I have left and I really don't want to go through getting another replacement... If anyone has a potential solution to this, I'd love to hear it.
Dell: any input or suggestions? The coil whine and fan noise are being discussed is other forums and can be addressed there, but the USB-C powershare is not.
