Have someone else experienced the problem with the VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE BSOD after BIOS update - Dell XPS 15 9550 1.2.21?? It usually happens after sleep/monitor off. After downgrading to BIOS 1.2.19 i no longer experience the problem.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Same problem here after updating video driver and BIOS.
Dell support: when about 10-20 people report sudden identical problem after a specific driver update, do you REEAAALLLLYY think it's best to ignore the obvious problem and post an outdated youtube video instead of filing an internal bug report? You are just delaying a solution and reducing the speed of Dell processes to fix this problem... This isn't one guy posting a badly defined problem, it's lots of people posting the identical problem. It really shouldn't be so hard
P.S.: Problem is better described here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/xps-9550-latest-intel-graphics-drivers-are-bad.803339/
It's actually the graphics driver, not the BIOS.
SOLUTION: Roll back from faulty version 126.96.36.19990 to last working version 188.8.131.5231. You can download the older, working driver here: http://www.dell.com/support/home/de/de/dedhs1/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=5MVK2
I got the same issue.... getting the same error code: VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE on igdkmd64.sys. Running Windows 10, did Bios update a couple weeks back. Experiencing many app crashes with Windows office (Outlook, Word Excel). Performance is very slow .... expecting better with a core i7 chip....
Need to restart the XPS 15 laptop several times a day just to run the apps.
Need help on this one.
I tried rolling back the Intel Graphics driver to the previous version 15.45, and so far no BSOD. So it might also be a problem with the new Intel driver as i updated both the BIOS and the driver around the same time...
I have the same problem after the BIOS and other drivers update. Lots of BSOD , screen flickers etc etc. I have downgraded the BIOS to 1.2.19 but the problem still persists. Need a solution asap..
