  • Issue#292135: Notebook - XPS 15 9550 4K black level clipping

    Hi everyone, I'm having an issue that my XPS 15 keeps clipping the lowest black levels on my screen. For example, see this image: http://gonedigital.net/wp-content/uploads/AVStest-black.png On all of my other monitors I can easily make out lines 18-25 (line 17 should be dark), but no matter how I calibrate the XPS 15 I cant resolve the lower bars.

  • Issue#1155141: Xps 15 (9550) keyboard backlight adjusting software

    Hi there!   I use my xps laptop late into the night with basically no light apart from the one from the laptop. So in order for me to not kill my eyes while staring at a bright white surrounded by black abyss was to get a software called "Windows Shades" (Witch gives you 100% flexibility of the color and shade) and buy a baby lamp so there would be a tiny shimmer of light so I could see behind my laptop.(If you want to buy one like these, search fore something with <1.5 Watts...

  • Issue#573930: Notebook - Dell XPS 9550 random black flicker

    Hey dude/ttes, I've searched high and low for the answer to this. Some said it was Hyper-V (nope) and some would say it was Intel's drivers (probably, still).

(edit: yes, even beyond Dell's official drivers) Every once and a while, a couple times a day, my display will flash black for....
