    Windows 10 Pro...... 1709...16299.125

    DELL XPS 2720 Win 10-Pro

    Basicly my PC is working well, but I try to get answers for a few minor problems in EventViewer.

    In the process I landed at Intel. From INtel I got the advice to rather go to DELL itself, as some driver updates will be manufacturer specific. Microsft tells me everything is up to date, and Intel has no Updates available for this PC.

    However DELL SUpport identified PC Service tag & Express Service Code. Based on this it searched for updates regarding this PC. 4 updates were found with auto installation, and 1x BIOS update installation.
    >I had the 4x downloaded + 1 Bios and some of them were installed waiting for a restart.
    >>THe bios update however hanged for an hour at 16% processor/taskmanager.
    >>> I then switched off PC and hope for the best....
    On 2nd attempt it loaded Windows, login but no reponse, hanging.
    I switched it off, on and it boot, can login with response, but warning about disk could loose data.....

    >>> I then restore it to the previous state successfully, and its running and booting fast with no problems.

    Here are the drivers DELL try to install.
    1-Serial ATA ..Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver and management console
    2-Chipset Intel Chipset driver
    3-Network..Dell Wireless 1703 WiFi + Bluetooth driver
    4-Chipset..Intel AMT HECI (ME) driver

    5-BIOS..Dell XPS 2720 System BIOS (Manual Install.

    I just want some advice on if you would downloadload each one, and in ...which order.... you would install them, with a reboot for each one....Thankyou

    Maybe you are hunting for 'problems' that are of no consequence for which event viewer is loaded with such issues on many systems.

    It sounds like you are running the supplied Dell installation of Windows together with the Dell 'bloatware' that is supposed to help keep your system up to date.

    I think your choices come down to leaving it as it is (particularly as you say it is running well at this point) or do as have done on my Dell (not your model) and do a totally clean install of Windows.
