Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook Improved BIOS and Trackpad Driver Now Available

Earlier, the new XPS 13 was reported to be having problems like a noisy system fan and troublesome touchpad. With the new updates, Dell has fixed the issues neatly. You can get the XPS 13’s updates for the system BIOS and the Cypress drivers of the trackpad from the Dell’s official website.

The Cypress Touch Pad driver update pack weighs 39MB whereas the system BIOS file is only 4MB in size. For installing the Cypress drivers of the trackpad, you will have to uninstall your current TrackPad software version from the Programs and Features window.

Meanwhile, the BIOS update can be quickly installed by just double-clicking the downloaded file.

After installations, both the updates work well and the problems are clearly rectified. The trackpad now exhibits more accuracy and fast response than in the previous condition.

In addition, you can simply make a middle-click by pressing the left and right buttons at the same instance as seen normally in most of the laptops. In the case of BIOS update, it is reported that the system fan now has enhanced management of  fan speeds, thereby reducing the noise fairly well.
