I did that exact thing in October. It did nothing to stop the BS's and that is when the 4 drivers noel pointed out were lost and for whatever reason can not find or install properly even coming from the Dell site for my laptop using my service code. I also lost the ability to change the colors on the keyboard which is nothing really but I am wary of doing that again. I am beginning to think I was given a lemon laptop and there is just something fundamentally wrong with it. If you really think this is the only way, I will do it after I get home from work.
