Issue#429: Dell - New XPS 15 9550 i7 not showing 4 cores-just 2!

  • I had the same situation of only showing 2 cores, in realtemp and in taskmanger and resource montitor within Windows. I found a fix on a forum: "I used the msconfig option, rebooted with the number of CPUs set to one, then unchecked the box and rebooted again. This time all 4 CPUs were present.

    I'm very happy with my old XPS (signature) since nothing beats the storage space I can fit in there. However, the battery life and display are not so great, compared to what's out there. This is where the new XPS 15 w/ Infinity displays are very tempting for me to upgrade. I am leaning toward one with i7/1080p non-touch/84Whr battery as it appears there are various options/combos to choose from.

    A lot of people have talked about how bad the 9550's speakers are and that they are staticky or distort. I never encountered those issues till after a week or so of owning my 9550. I noticed static and it became more frequent. I also noticed the palm rest on top of the speakers got rather warm when I would play music at higher volume settings. Couple days go by and the right side speaker gets too staticky during any sort of sound coming through the speaker. That side of the speaker later...

I had thought I had successfully updated my BIOS to 1.1.15 back when it was first released - the firmware updating process seemed to go through without a hitch, and claimed the firmware update passed. I decided to download the new 1/27 "update" and the update dialogue claims I still have 1.01.15 installed. So, I installed it, it rebooted, it said it was doing the BIOS updates.

It is charging - the light at the front lights up, but when I press the power button, it just lights up(the button) for a sec, then turns off. Nothing happens to the rest of the laptop. I have raised a ticket with Dell support, but with the experiences of the guys on here, I'm not holding my breath on them acting on this soon. Any idea what is wrong with it?

  • Issue#72134: [ubuntu] Dell XPS 13 9350 Graphics Issue

    Hello this is my first time using Ubuntu and utilizing the Ubuntu forums. I don't know any rules regarding how to operate here within the forums but I'll preface my issue with a quick story. I am a prospective computer science undergrade and am entering this field with little knowledge. I recently decided to try Ubuntu and installed 15.10, liked it so much i wiped my drive and made it my sole OS. I experienced issues with my network driver for my laptop posted in the title so i upgraded to the xenial development build to utilize the 4.4 kernel. This went well and i had no issues. I had one issue with my laptop not shitting down and sitting at an Ubuntu logo with the dots and tried a fix using gedit /etc/default/grub. Eventually i decided not to change the file because i probably would mess something up and low and behold when i force shut off my computer, i was sent to the grub bootloader (which i had never seen before). With a lot of frustration i eventually figured out i needed to b
