Since the BIOS update to 1.16.2, my XPS has problems starting up.
After the Dell logo, the message "(A7) Me FW Downgrade - Request MeSpilock Failed" appears for 1-2 minutes and then he started normally. After logging in, the message "No audio output device installed" appears.
I have already searched for solutions, but nothing helps.
For the audio problem I tried to install the Realtek driver again. To do this, the current one need to be uninstalled and reboot. After the restart the new driver can be installed.
After the restart and before installing the Realtek driver, the audio output is working again and Realtek is not shown in Device Manager. After a few minutes, however, Realtek reappears in Device Manager and the audio output no longer works.
I hope someone can help me, thank you very much.
I did the upgrade recently to BIOS 1.19.0 and same two problems happened
I did fixed the audio problem by changing the driver to HD audio
But the Me FW Downgrade error message still there
Can you please update if you get any solution?
i'am facing the same problem on every boot startup this (A7) Me FW Downgrade - Request MeSpilock failed appear.
It occur's after i've updated my Dell E7270 with the latest BIOS 1.28.3
Hope there will be new update from Dell to resolve this problem.
I have this problem. The audio solution fixed the audio problem, but the a7 fw downgrade problem remains. I can't find the solution anywhere, but this is my exact model and symptom; so, I'm going to wait for a solution here.
was the same here regarding the multiple attempts before it would reboot. Attempted the Bios update that usually failed because the system would not reboot to do this, and after multiple attempts, the bios installer kicked in, but after that the XPS is unbootable. Keyboard lights come on and turn off in a few seconds. Sent it in for diagnostics, will report back on what they find and ask me to shell out
