XPS15 9560 Windows 10 ESENT 916 event log entry causing system freeze

Hi community,

Since the past 2 months I am facing random system freezes with my new XPS15 9560. During the same time I am getting one or more entries with Source "ESENT" and Event ID "916" in the Windows Application event log, which look like that:


Log Name:      Application
Source:        ESENT
Date:          23.04.2018 18:41:04
Event ID:      916
Task Category: General
Level:         Information
Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A
Computer:      DESKTOP-XXXXXX
svchost (7264,G,0) The beta feature EseDiskFlushConsistency is enabled in ESENT due to the beta site mode settings 0x800000.
Event Xml:
<Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
    <Provider Name="ESENT" />
    <EventID Qualifiers="0">916</EventID>
    <TimeCreated SystemTime="2018-04-23T16:41:04.442140400Z" />
    <Security />

The event occurs several times during up-time, when searching through the entire Application event log. Mostly it's giving "DllHost (892,G,0)" or "svchost (7264,G,0)" at the beginning of the text being logged. Of course the first number within the brackets, which is the Windows Process ID, differs from time to time or after reboot. Additionally said, it seems that the log entries appear in case of a freeze but also if not.

My Windows version:

OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
Version 10.0.16299 Build 16299


I've been searching through the web already, but none of the articles I find can provide a meaningful solution. Then I came across the following article on answers.microsoft.com from a user facing the same issue with a XPS15 9550: 

In that article the "solution" is to update the XPS with the latest BIOS version and device driver versions. So I just did a check on the 9560 driver's page, but I couldn't find any further update for my system. 

Is anyone else facing the same or similar issue and might have a solution for that?
