Cannot load graphics for XPS 13

I've been running Fedora 25 on my Dell XPS 13 (9350) for around a month without issue until about a week ago when the desktop wouldn't load, instead just a blank screen and a back light would appear. The grub menu works but there's no display after that. The terminal with ctrl+F2 doesn't work here, but I can SSH from another computer so I know there is some life at this point.

I can load a desktop with nomodeset but haven't been able to work out how to fix the underlying problem. i915.preliminaryhwsupport=1 worked but only for a few days, I'm still stuck in software rendering.

Since then I've tried Ubuntu and another Fedora Live Disk but still can't load graphics without using nomodeset. I've updated with dnf, downgraded the kernel, updated to the rawhide kernel, flashed the BIOS but still haven't got anywhere.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
