Anyone have a clue what this fixes?
it appears to be the firmware update for the preformance control so your fans and lights will work without sending the fans into overdrive, not for sure but thats what it looks like.
I would think it would be compatabile with every BIOS, but Im not sure.
First extract the file, then go into your NVIDIA Control Panel, and goto ESA Firmware and upload from there. It's not self-installing like a BIOS update would be ....

I didn't get the email, but then I'm not having fan or light issues. I just saw the update on Dell's site, and it was marked as an "Urgent" download. So I downloaded and tried to run it and that's when I got the error.
I had firmware 20 showing as the instalkled version. Did the update, still showing 20. Also after restart, tried again, still 20.
Is that correct?
I thought it might have been 24, since I recall a post where that version was mentioned (maybe on the unofficial XPS 630 forum :-)).

That's basically what I attempted to do. The problem is that the file on the Dell site was not executing or extracting. Has a new file replaced it?
