I think Dell should be repairing at no cost seeing as it was their update that killed a bunch of computers."

I downloaded Skyrim and it was so laggy as it was running on integrated graphics. When I downloaded them my laptop couldn't shut down and sometimes it couldn't wake up when the screen turned off. Next day I was not even able to get smooth gameplay even on medium settings then I uninstalled beta drivers and reinstalled stock drivers, I still had the same problem.

I'm using the same laptop with you and did everything you say including installing with express option but still my fps is still low.
Many of those who installed the update now cannot boot up their machines.
One typical explanation posted was: "Add me to the list Dell Inspiron 20 model 3052, updated on the weekend, woke up to a solid amber/orange light and a dead computer.
Contacted Dell on facebook and this is what I was told "The updates Dell releases don't affect the system.
But it would enhance the performance of the system" ummmm no...they broke they need to fix it." Another said, "Let's hope Dell fixes it for free, the Dell Update software that was prepackaged, might I say, reminded me to update constantly. Well, I am not very happy with the update, so 2 stars out of 5." Some users complained screens cycled through red, green, blue and white while others saw nothing but an amber or red power light and a dead screen.
Dell's initial reaction was to tell customers they needed to buy new motherboards.
One punter said "Called Dell and it would cost 0 for a new motherboard.
I don't want to do this if it will foul up my ability to eventually upgrade to Windows 10.
Secondly, I don't want to try to do this kind of Bios update and screw up my machine.
It may well be that Dell have produced a BIOS update for that machine to aid it in updating to Win 10, but if you have any doubts then contact Dell to see if they'll give you an answer for what may be a machine out of warranty.
