    I never got a response back from Microsoft but the CPU usage is fixed now, I did a clean install of Windows 10 to see if that would fix everything. The brightness button that was grayed out wasn't grayed out anymore but when I clicked it to change the brightness the percentage would change but the screen would not go dim. And eventually the button was grayed out again. The display driver is Intel(R) HD Graphics. Tried updating it but it's already up to date. It might be an issue with Dell.
    Have you checked the Dell website for driver and BIOS updates for your system?

    You mentioned that your battery is going. Have you tried removing it and just using AC power? Sometimes a failing battery can do strange things to a laptop, and even damage it if left in.
