Hi Ben,
I'm not sure it's related but there's a very well known problem about the Dell XPS M1530, it's the heating issue.
The Graphic Card is too powerful for the fan system (Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT or 8400M GS).
I have two XPS M1530 (with the 2 different cards) that reached temperatures over 80°C (Graphic Card), and over 60°C (HDD and Motherboard).
I have also experienced key repeating problems before Motherboard + Graphic Card Replacement.
Here is a link to the Dell Community about the heat issue

ps:
Great Answer Erik. Very Detailed and Precise.
