RE: Dell XPS 15 L502x buzzing and stuttering problems persist even after uninstalling Dell SupportAssist

After a process of elimination, I found that the Service "Dell Data Vault" appears to be the culprit.  Try disabling this service in MSConfig.exe and reboot.  This stops the buzzing/freezing for me.  Further, if I re-start the service (type Services in the Start menu...), it immediately causes buzzing, and then this occurs every minute or so.

I imagine that uninstalling the Dell DataSafe application will uninstall the Dell Data Vault service, but I haven't tried that yet.

I hope Dell are working on this.
