Q: Inspiron 7559 Gaming Ed. - Support 144hz monitor?

Hi all! I have the Inspiron 7559 with an i5 cpu and the Nvidia Geforce GTX 960m for the GPU.I'm looking to get a 144hz monitor for higher framerates on some games. May i check if the laptop and GPU can support a higher refresh rate monitor?
I understand that given my setup, i wont get ultra settings on a 144hz monitor. I'm actually looking at playing overwatch on low settings.

thanks!

Hi,
Is it possible to use a 144hz monitor on this laptop. I know HDMI only will output 60hz, but is this somehow tweakable that it will output more than 60hz?

The 7559 has the hardware for it and I have attached some images to prove it. Its a really a big shame that we the owners and game developers are left outside when it comes to security and performance regarding the widely available Self Encrypting Drives (SED).

While playing CS:GO, my laptop froze and won't shutdown with holding down the power button, had to open up the back panel and pull the battery connector to shut it down. This is the first time it happened, had the laptop since Feb.
Is it related to cpu temperature management? Ambient temperature in my room is kinda high lately would peak to 87 degrees C using HWMonitor from 80 normally.
Any feedback/replies to this post is pretty much appreciated! Just want to know what to avoid to keep it from happening again.

I recently bought an Inspiron 7559 laptop and then decided to clone the HDD with a Sandisk 1TB SSD. I also added another 8GB main memory. I replaced the drive and the PC worked just fine.
After a few days, I quick formatted the HDD and put it back in as a Data D drive. The day I did that Dell upgraded my BIOS and on reboot soon after a square block of white area appeared on the top left quadrant of either of my screens, the laptop or the U2415 (also brand new.) If I move between the screens then the other does not show the anomaly.
If I right click on the task bar and bring the desktop up the block gets painted over/filled with the background. However if I start an app, say a browser the block re-appears. I did Dell diagnostics which passed all the components and then also diagnostics via the BIOS and that also did not show any problem. I decided against the longer diagnostic for now.
There does not seem to be any issues but it would be good to solve it...maybe something came loose when I opened the back and replaced the SSD or the HDD.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have tried repeatedly uninstalling and reinstalling both intel and nvidia drivers, using the stock dell drivers and the latest from each manufacturer.  Did a clean install of windows.  The computer beeps when I plug in the monitor but other than that pretends as if it doesn't exist.  Nothing shows up on boot even on the 2nd monitor.  It shows up as a grey screen in display properties but attempts to clone/extend display doesn't do anything.  I can't change resolution or anything either.

Hi,
My new Inspiron 7559 wont detect my LG monitor and I cant figure out why so would appreciate any advice that can be offered.    
Heres the problem:

Dell Laptop works fine apart from this issue.
Monitor works fine when connected to my old desktop pc (directly into an amd radeon graphics card via hdmi)
Dell Laptop with same HDMI to my 32" lcd tv works fine as second monitor.

This hopefully rules out a hardware fault.  The HDMI on the dell laptop works to a tv, the hdmi lead works and the monitor works with another source input.  For some reason the dell laptop will not detect the monitor.
I can't try another output as the laptop only has hdmi out. 
I've tried updating all drivers no luck
When the laptop is plugged into the TV,  two generic pnp monitors are displayed in device manager
When the laptop is plugged into the monitor only one pnp monitor is shown (the laptop screen)
Have tried deleting drivers and rebooting with basic drivers but no luck.
Monitor is a LG m228wd - have contacted LG and they say the problem lies with the laptop. 
Machine specs:
i7 6700HQ,
Intel HD graphics 530, drivers 20.19.15.4352
Geforce GTX 960M Drivers 10.18.13.5382

Appreciate any advice or suggestions

Hello,
I got this laptop recently and ran into an issue when connecting to external displays, in all games I am unable to set my video settings to 60Hz when choosing to project my display to the external screen only. If I duplicate the screen then I have no issue, but I want to be able to close the laptop lid and have 60Hz as an option, otherwise everything shows up as 59Hz which causes stuttering and flickering. The weird thing is that in Windows my refresh rate shows up as 60Hz at 1920x1080 but when launching any game 59Hz is the highest I can go to when set to display as "second screen only" in Windows 10. Please let me know what I could to fix this, and if it is not clear let me know.

Hi, I can't seem to get anything higher than 1920x1080 in the list of available resolution options when I connect my Dell U2713HM monitor to my Dell Inspiron 15 laptop. I've run this monitor at 2560x1440 on another laptop over HDMI in the past but that was with Windows 8. The Intel HD Graphics 530 Control Panel doesn't offer any resolutions above 1920x1080 for the external monitor and adding custom resolutions results in the error "the custom resolution exceeds the maximum bandwidth capacity". I'm using the same high speed HDMI cable that worked at 2560x1440 with this monitor on my previous laptop. I'm fully up to date on all of the drivers for the laptop.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm not sure what else to try. Could this be a Windows 10 issue? Should I try the standard Intel HD Graphics 530 drivers from the Intel website?

A:Dell Inspiron 15 7559 connected to Dell U2713HM monitor over HDMI can't do 2560x1440 resolution in Windows 10

Hi JonoBloo,
The hardware on the system supports the 2560x1440. It should be a software issue. I would suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the video card driver from Dell website as these drivers are tested on the Dell system. Please follow the steps mentioned below to uninstall the video card.

Press the Windows key and Start typing devmgmt.msc and then press enter.
Select the Display adapters listed and right click on it.
Now select properties.
In the properties window, under Driver tab, click on Uninstall button.
Check “Delete the driver software for this device.”
You want to delete the driver click OK.

After the uninstall finishes restart the system. Then reinstall the Intel video card driver for issue resolution. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, select the OS, then download the video card drivers from Video section onto the system and install it.

I've been running a multi-monitor setup for a while now, with an ASUS VG248QE 144Hz monitor as my main, and one or more spare monitors as secondary displays. I've set the ASUS monitor to 144Hz without issue in the past, while the other monitors stay at 60Hz.

The other night, Windows wanted to update. I figured it was the usual patch session, so I let it do its thing. However, after restarting my computer, I noticed that my ASUS monitor would only operate at 144Hz if it was the only monitor plugged into the system. When I try to set it higher in the Nvidia control panel, it just reverts back to 60Hz after applying changes. I updated my graphics drivers (though I was only one version behind) and even sought a special ASUS driver for the monitor to resolve the issue, but nothing has helped.

Did Windows recently add a forced refresh rate sync between all monitors recently? If so, that really sucks because I only own one 144Hz monitor.

A:Dual monitor setup locks 144Hz monitor at 60Hz

Are you sure the other monitors are independent (dual or multiple mode) rather than cloning the main monitor? If they clone the main monitor, then this explains the 60Hz refresh rate, as all settings (resolution, color depth, refresh rate) should be common for all monitors and the others can only do 60Hz.

I just got my Acer 144hz gaming monitor.
I have it connected to my MSI 970 GPU.

I just connected everything up lastnight and looks pretty good.
It came with 2 cables? DVI and D sub? Which connection should I use to get the best performance? It also has an HDMI and display.
Also. Does anything need to be set or adjusted right out of the box? I know I can adjust the color etc.. But does 144hz need to be set? Or is it 144hz right out of the box?

With my MSI 970 is there a option to adjust settings to maximize its performance? Or is it pretty much right out of the box all set and ready to go?
I just want to make sure I maximize my monitor and GPU to get the best performance and picture out of it.

One simple question:
Has anyone succesfully connected the Dell XPS 15 9950 to an external monitor that runs on 2560x1440 @144Hz?
I have asked Dell employees over chat in three different countries, they all say different things.
I would think that one could use the thunderbolt3 enabled usb-c port to do this by running a usb-c to displayport cable to the monitor.
I have searched the internet for a week and didnt find an conclusive answer. 
The usb-c to displayport cable exists (Plugable and Startech makes them) and both are capable of driving an external monitor @144hz, but it is unknown if Dell supports this. 
I would love to find out your experiences! If you have experience with other resolutions @144hz, or even @120hz, let me know as well! 
If it's not possible it's a dealbreaker for me.

My current setup involves a single monitor, DisplayPort connection, and 1920 x 1080 desktop resolution. No matter what settings I try my games and videos are blurry and appear to render at a much lower refresh rate than they should.

I've fiddled with the monitor, and found that setting trace free at 100 enables a weird ghosting effect, which is not so bad at 80. I've switched between DisplayPort and DVI-D Dual Link, going so far as to switch the DVI between the Analog and Digital outputs of my Graphics Card with little-to-no difference.

I have played several games with the Fraps framerate display enabled: Dragon Age: Origins, Deus Ex (the old one), Descent: Freespace, and Skyrim. The framerate remained above 120 fps in DAO, a constant 144 in Deus Ex (with the special launcher), 120 in Freespace, and 144 in Skyrim (though 144fps Skyrim is too buggy to play). I have also tried various Vsync settings to no avail.

They all appear blurry when they should be sharp, and I get screen tearing on some games. My mouse has a relatively low dpi, so I only test the visual quality using keyboard commands. Using the UFO Frame Test, the image is blurred in four possible refresh rates: 144, 120, 100, and 85. I have also installed the Toasty X Strobelight tool; whether Lightboost is on or off, the only difference is in monitor brightness.

I upgraded to a proper gaming computer several months ago, because I have heard that the jump from 60 to 120+ is at least noticeable (if not bea... Read more

You need to check and see what the highest NON-INTERLACED refresh rate your monitor can support and use that or lower.

Hi, I have a question that's not directly related to the original post but it also has to do with the Inspiron 7559. I've owned mine for ~3 mo. Two days ago it installed an NVIDIA driver update. Last night a game I was playing suddenly froze and I had to force quit, but after I restarted the game (at which time my internet browsers were also open but they were only displaying gmail and another simple website with no multimedia playing), the computer completely froze. Mouse didn't work, and ctrl-alt-delete didn't work. I finally tried to force shutdown the laptop by holding the power button for a long time, but that also didn't work, which was worrying. This laptop has an internal battery, so I couldn't just remove the battery to force a shutdown. I ended up unplugging the external power and letting the laptop run its battery out so that it shut itself down.
This only happened once, and the laptop turned on ok this morning, but I'm worried that if a similar situation happens again, I wouldn't have any other options if the power button doesn't work like it's supposed to.

Hi GYDELLCOMM,
Are there any bluescreens / system crashes? Does the system overheat? What is the current OS installed on the system?
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/24WBGxK
If the system tends to work fine, create a system restore point, so you could always restore the system back to a functional state if any SW issue is caused.
If the issue reoccurs at any point, then 
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.
Create a new local admin account and check - http://bit.ly/1JoFhcw
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - leave the system in BIOS environment with the adapter plugged in and check if the system freezes at any point. There is a system clock in BIOS that keeps ticking - if the system freezes at any point, then the system clock would have frozen.
Write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

I just bought the highest spec Inspiron - 8gb ram, 4k display, ssd+hdd & I got few issues.

Firstly, the problem with the track pad. Right out of the box the *** track pad was glitchy. The left click wouldn't register all the time, and the track-pad it self has so much play. I get this is their cheaper line, but can anyone else confirm this same build quality? And if they have the same problem with the left click. Right click registers 100% of the time.

Secondly, my windows boots really quick. But there is this weird freaking lag I feel. If I put my laptop on sleep or shut the lid and continue from where I left off every single folder I open is so slow. And regardless of restarting my pc or not, maximizing or minimizing windows has this stutter feel to it. Like the windows fall behind...

I have changed the setting to performance vs visual. I have updated the bios as per Tech support, updated the video card & windows; I still get this really bad lag. I have windows 10 on pc, and I want to know how to fix this issue. I would also like to know if anyone else is experiencing this stuff. And apparently my in home warranty only covers track pad but not the software side of it. The sales person did a poor job at explaining the warranty side by saying everything is covered with in home warranty.

$1600. was it worth it. We will see in 2 weeks. Help

I've been looking all over on google and I have yet to find a solution to my problem that doesn't involve cloning my main monitor.

I'm trying to use my 144hz monitor with my Live Gamer HD Capture hard. Unfortunetly, The Live Gamer HD only supports HDMI, and I get capped at 60hz. Is there a work around for this? Are there any capture cards that can support a higher hz? I'm not looking to record in 144hz just to play in 144hz while the stream/video is recorded in 30 or 60hz. Hopefully that makes sense.

I'd like to use my current PC as a streaming machine and I'd like to build a new PC primarily for gaming.

I saw an option called PC diagnostic, i wanted to run it. I selected all the devices/hardware on the list.
Is it normal that it lasted 6 hours and something?

Another thing. During some stages of the test, my CPU & Memory usage were on or above 90% (i only had 4 Windows of Microsoft Edge)

Where is the HDD located? is it normal to get hot/warm on the left bottom side? (left side of the touch pad)
Thank you so much

My contention is that the sales dept. original misunderstood their product and sold me a machine that does not perform the function requested.  They misrepresented the product.
I had the Laptop for 2 weeks before i started having issue with display drivers,  was email tech supports for another 2 weeks before i was able to get any type of help. While on the phone i was asking question about this laptop, and the Tech Support told me i never should have bought this.. its made to do the type of graphic design work i do.
So i immediately called customer care, they wouldnt return my laptop cause i missed my widow by 3 days, Even though it was i was with Tech support for almost 3  1/2 weeks of setting up times to get my laptop looked at, in which Dell missed the schedule appointments  2x..
Sale reps are not educated on the product and shouldnt be selling with proper education..
now im stuck in limbo waiting for a tech to come change out my mother board, honestly as soon as its fixed its going to ebay..

Hi,
I've had the Dell Inspiron 15 7559 4k laptop since around January 2016 and I've had a lot of blue screen errors. It's always the 'whea_uncorrectable_error' blue screen that I get.
It mostly happens when I'm in the middle of using a program like Gamemaker, Photoshop or Maya and even when browsing in Chrome, but it's never once happened while playing a game, so I thought it might of had something to do with the Intel graphics, which I changed the drivers multiple times and nothing changed.
Most recently, the laptop has been giving me a critical error (shown in Dell's Support Assist) while going to Sleep or Hibernate mode. I noticed it when I had closed the lid for it to go to Sleep mode, about 2 hours later, once it automatically goes to Hibernate mode, the laptop would just switch off. I noticed this because when I switched it back on, I would have to switch the numlock back on to enter my password and none of my programs were still loaded. I checked Support Assist and another Critical Error had popped up, but with no error report.
I've tried reseting the BIOS, but nothing changed apart from the function key was reset - I've never needed to change anything in the BIOS. All drivers and the BIOS is up to date. I also switched off Fast-boot as it was one of the many things I read that might help the issue, but didn't. This was a clean install onto the M.2 drive I bought, but also did a full reset via the Windows setup thing, to... Read more

I just bought this Inspiron 15 7559, used.  The previous owner says it was working perfectly when he sent it to me.
When I received it (Oct 24), it would not boot up.  I'd press the power button, and the power button and keyboard backlight would come on, and a fan would come on for about 2 seconds and then stop, but that was it.  Also, the status light would alternate flashing white a few times, then amber.  We took the battery and memory out, and did a power reset.  Replaced the memory and plugged in the AC adapter, and the computer started up.  So we put the battery back in, and everything was good.
Less than a week later (Oct 30), I was using the computer, just checking Facebook and email and such, and the screen went crazy and froze up.  All I could do was do a force shutdown.  But when I tried to turn it back on, it was doing the same thing it did when I received it.  We tried what we did before, removing battery and memory and resetting power and all that, but it still will not come on.  I ran the LCD BIST test, and the screen did come on and flash different colors, so I know the screen itself still works.
The laptop is still under warranty, so I could send it in.  Or, the person I got it from said they'd give me my money back if they had to.  I just wanted to find out if it was something I could possibly fix myself, before having to send it off for who knows how long, or returning it to the previous ow...

A:Inspiron 7559 - Will not Boot up

Alicia.You will need to wait for the warranty to transfer before you can send it in for repairs. The transfer could take 2-4 weeks to get the warranty transferred to your name. You can take the battery out,remove the power adapater and hold the power button down for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Put the battery back in and turn it on. If that does not work it will  need to be repaired under the warranty.

When we purchased this laptop, I tried to verify with Dell Support what ssd would fit before the laptop arrived so we could order and have it I hand. I was told the m.2 2280 ssd format was correct and ordered the Samsung 850 EVO. After both arrived, I went to install the ssd and the slot was not the same as the layout of the ssd - it only had one notch vs. two for the Samsung 850. I did some research and found out it the mobo was designed for the pcie m.2 ssd. So I sent back the 850 and ordered the Samsung 950 PRO. I installed it and nothing - could not get the laptop to recognize the ssd no matter what. SO here it is, about 8 months later and I still have a $200 ssd doing nothing. Anyone have any ideas? We'd love to put the operating system on the ssd and use the 1 TB hybrid for everything else!

This model supports SATA 6G SSDs  -- not PCIe or NVMe drives. 
When you installed the Evo card, did you check to make sure the system was setup (F2 at powerup) for AHCI mode - NOT RAID mode (which likely was the default when the system arrived)?

I bought this laptop exactly one month ago, and I haven't had a single problem until today. I was in the middle of typing when my keyboard suddenly stopped working. I went to restart the driver, but nothing worked, so I decided to just shut down the computer and wait it out. The laptop started shutting down, with the screen off and everything, however after a while the fan was still gently going, indicating it was still on, and the light on the power button was still on as another indicator that it was STILL on. Holding down the power button doesn't shut the computer off no matter how long I press it, and it just won't turn off or on, as if it's stuck trying to turn off but can't completely. The keyboard is, I assume, still not working, so maybe the power button is also broken.
Windows 10 automatically updated about 4 days ago for me, but I hadn't had any problem with it. The laptop has been working perfectly until today. I desperately can't afford to lose my files, is there a way to fix this/has this happened before with a solution? I could try taking the battery out as well but I don't think I have the proper equipment to take out the torx screws around the battery.

Hi All, I recently got a Dell Inspiron 7559. It came with a 8GB Skhynix "hmt41gs6bfr8a-pb no aa 1506" RAM stick. I'd like to upgrade it to 16GB. I thought I had bought the same 8GB RAM model from ebay, but I had received an 8 GB Skhynix "hmt41gs6bfr8a-pb na aa 1511". Are they two completely different models because of their different nomenclature? Can I still use it to upgrade my ram? Thank you

A:Dell Inspiron 7559 ram upgrade

There's only one memory socket on this model, so an 8G isn't going to get you an upgrade.  You need a 16G module to upgrade.
These are available, but brace yourself of the price - they're expensive:
<<www.crucial.com/usa/en/inspiron-15-%287559%29/CT7932597>>
(as you can see, going from 8G to 16 causes the price of a module to rise by a factor about five).

My Inspiron 7559 is an i7 model, with an added 8GB RAM stick.Since the past week, games which used to run at 60 fps are now running at below 30 fps (Witcher 3 used to give me 50fps and now gives me 15-20fps).
I have already tried the following:
1) Disabling Game DVR in the Xbox app
2) Doing a clean install of  all drivers available on Nvidia's website
3) Installing all the above drivers after deleting the old one using Display Driver Uninstaller
4) Installing the driver available on Dell's website
5) Checking all the settings in the Nvidia Control Panel
As it sits now, the laptop is running on driver version 368.71 from Dell's support page.
Also, Here is what I've noticed:
If I launch a game immediately after installing the graphics driver, it performs at its actual 60fps level. However, 15-20 seconds into any game, the game crashes with no "XXXXXX Stopped working" dialog box. If I launch the game again, it then gives me the horribly low fps. This isn't specific to any game. The Crew, Rocket league, Witcher 3, Battlefield 4, Project CARS, you name it.
I am now at my wit's end on how to solve this problem.

Just got my computer back from Dell tech support having sent it because of an issue with no audio output device installed and the red x on the toolbar. The computer is in the exact same state as before I sent it with nothing fixed. I've tried reinstalling the drivers multiple times, checked if audio services were running and all of that. Feels like a huge waste of money at this point and is especially disappointing because this computer was actually a gift for someone. Has anyone had this issue with this computer and have it resolved without resorting to an external usb sound driver?

A:Dell Inspiron 15 7559 No Audio

You can diagnose this by performing a system recovery (reset the laptop back to the original factory configuration.) If there is still no audio immediately after recovery, before getting on the internet, then the audio hardware has failed and Dell will have to fix it under the terms of the warranty. In other words they could not say it is a software issue and therefore not covered.
If the recovery does fix it, but the problems recurs after getting on the internet, then probably some Windows Updates-related issue.

And sometimes automatically the screen adapts its lighting depending on what range of pixel color takes up the most space, for example resizing  a steam window (dark) will affect the overall mood of the screen slightly changing the color of other windows, especially noticeable with white windows.

I just bought a new Dell Inspiron 15 7559 a month ago. The first week it was amazing with no problems at all. 
Then when I was working on it, left it plugged in and left is for a while, then came back to it after 1 hour or so, I noticed that the battery was discharging. 
Did not mind it until it went to "plugged in, charging" 0% and it shut off completely. 
I tried to turn it on several times and it did not turn on. 
Called Dell service center and advised to remove the battery. I cannot remove the battery completely because of the screw type but managed to remove the cables. 
I turn it back on and it worked again. But after a few days the probem kept recurring. 
Its going like "plugged in, charging" but it is not charging. Or "1 hour 05minutes to full charge" but after an hour it will be "1 hour 40minutes to full charge". I mean what gives. 
Have done all that was advised in the internet but not hing is working. 
I have done restart task manager, uninstall API, and all that, but the problem is recurring.
BIOS was updated recently also. So is it hardware of software. 
Please help for anymore ideas?
Its brand new, it rocks when it is working, but I dont have the patience to kept on checking for hte battery status. It is getting annoying also. 
Thank you.

Hi SANDMAN99,
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system? Could you test with another power adapter if possible? 
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter plugged in. Also, wiggle the adapter cable at the end and see if the status changes in BIOS at any point. Check the battery health in BIOS (if applicable).
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

My 7559 laptop is still relatively new but I feel like ever since an update in June it's been acting strange. It froze for no reason and wouldn't shut off when I held the power button. I had to unplug it and let the battery die. When I restarted everything was fine so I ran McAfee got nothing and moved on.
That said, ever since it can't seem to handle sleep mode as well as it use too. I was able to leave it on for a few weeks at a time and now I feel like I have to turn it off daily or it's Memory goes up. It's also frozen once since the initial freeze but that time it actually let me hold the power to turn it off. 
I'm fairly certain I'm not the only one experiencing this. I think it's the update that caused it, but I don't really have any proof other than McAfee hasn't found anything. I've been keeping the task manager up to keep an eye out but the only things that are noticeable are System and Compressed memory and McAfee. Well those and Chrome but chrome's always been a hog. 
I can deal with it for now, but I'm hoping there will be an update or something to fix it. I'm really just posting to see if anyone else has experienced this or something similar.

There is no need to wait until the battery runs down to turn off a frozen laptop nowadays. Simply hold down the power button until it shuts off. It will take 30-40 seconds.
You can uninstall updates if you think there is a bad update. Open Settings, Update, Advanced Options, View update History, Uninstall updates. Not all updates can be uninstalled but some can. You should also check the Event Viewer for clues as to what might be hanging up the computer.

When I plug in the headphones the dialog box also doesn't show asking me about the audio device connected to the port. I know the headphones work on my phone, and I've tried deinstalling the Realtek audio driver and using the native driver. Nothing seems to work. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm grateful for any help!
Best,
Cameron

Hi everyone,
I want to exchange the HDD in my Inspiron 7559 with a normal SATA SSD (I have a Crucial MX300 750 GB).
I did that, and when I'm starting the PC now, the screen stays black, although the light on the power button turns on. To clarify, I can't enter the BIOS, I don't see the DELL logo, the screen just turns, and stays, black. After switching back to the original HDD, the system behaves normally.
First I figured that the laptop required some files on the HDD to start, so I reinstalled the original HDD and cloned it via the Crucial cloning software. That didn't help, the screen still stays perfectly black.
I tried detaching power-adapter and all USB devices, to no avail.
What can I do here? I don't want to keep using the original HDD until Amazon finally has my M.2 SSD in stock. I already updated the BIOS to 1.1.8, after which I was able to boot from the SSD ONCE, after the next reboot the problem was back.
I'd appreciate your help!

Hello. It's a common problem with that model. See the Choppy/Skipping Audio FAQ for the solutions other owners have found. The 7559 section is the 1st section after the links at the top of the FAQ.

My gpu isn't showing up in device manager, or in the bios. nvidia installers and geforce experience wont work because they say I don't have the required hardware. there have been no knocks or drops since updating the bios last night that might have caused this, and I've already done a factory reset, no luck, I'm stumped!

I have a brand new Inspiron 7559 and noticed that occassionally it registers the letters I type twice. After some quick research I realized that it is a common issue with various dell llaptops, although not with my model. Is it a software/bios issue or is it a faulty keyboard? does anyone else happen to have that issue with that specific laptop model?

I have just bought a Dell Inspiron 15 7559 and it just arrived this morning. However, when I try to play any sound the speaker starts to crackle heavily. The only solution that works is plugging in headphones and unplugging them which seems to work. But once you shut down the computer, and turn it back on, this problem still exists. I have already updated the realtek hd audio driver as well as the bios. I would hate to have to return the laptop as it works flawlessly otherwise.

I have brand new a Dell Inspiron 7559 (Core i5 model) which i received 2 days ago.  The inbuilt speakers work fine. But when I plug in my earphones, the is sound only on the left side and a very faint sound on the right one. When I check the left and right sound in the sound properties, both the test sounds appear on the left side only. The earphones I am using are Klipsch R6. And here are no issues with the earphones since they work perfectly with my phone and other Dell Inspiron laptop.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Like mentioned above. Recently when I was using Microsoft edge, the notification centre told me multiple time that the intel hd 530 graphics card driver for Windows 8 stops working and recovers. It is pretty annoying and for once the system refused to application to access the driver. So I was wondering if the product itself had the intel graphics card along with NVDIA GeForce GTX960. Can anybody help me with it? Helps are always appreciated!

A:Does inspiron 7559 has an intel hd 530 graphics card?

Hi please PM us the system tag# as requested, we will see into it. Only if the drivers are installed the device manager will list both the Intel HD and the NVidia (if opted at the point of sale) , even if the intel drivers are not installed it will show generic display drivers under display adapters.

I am having an issue with certain games where they have sound, but no visual. Using NVIDIA control panel, I can force it to run on my integrated card, which it then runs extremely laggy because its running on the integrated card, VS the 960m.
I only have an issue with this on certain games, some run with absolutely no problem, games like CS:GO, Skyrim, Garry's Mod, and others work fine. But then games like GTA V, Overwatch, World of Warcraft(?), City's: Skylines, Faster Than Light, and more do not work at all if I run it on my NVIDIA card. I see no pattern to any of these games, its just random games work and others don't unless I run them on my integrated Intel GPU.
Let me add I sent my computer to Dell themselves, and they didn't even fix the issue. So I am completely out of options.

I have W10 on a new Inspiron 15 7000 Series 7559. When I have a mouse or trackball connected, I would like to turn off the touchpad. Otherwise stray fingers from typing move the mouse around.
I went to the control panel and found an option that says "Leave Touchpad On When Mouse is Connected". If I turn that off, then the touch pad is disabled. But I'm using a wireless trackball. When I turn the trackball off, the touchpad doesn't start working. I have to remove the trackball's USB dongle before the touchpad starts working. Ideally, the touchpad would work whenever the trackball isn't working. But it's not that convenient.
On my old Dell laptop, there was a hotkey for enabling the trackpad. That would be ideal. I'd like to enable it quickly depending on whether I'm using the trackball or not. I can't find any hotkey on this laptop. And I can't even find a quick way to get to the control panel setting.
Any way to make this more functional? Possible solutions would be (in order of preference):1) Have the control panel setting work whenever the trackball is turned off or missing, even if the trackball dongle is still in the USB port.
2) Have a hot-key that could enable and disable the touchpad.
3) Create a shortcut directly to the relevant control panel page.
Thanks for any help,
     DaveT

I bought a Dell Inspiron 15 7559 laptop about a week or so ago and several days later realised some odd USB transfer behaviour. Tried all 3 different usb3.0 ports, same problem.
(Bios was updated immediately after cloning hdd to m.2 ssd and all drivers updated.)
(I swapped the 1TB hybrid drive with a Samsung 850EVO and installed an m.2 Samsung 850EVO) (OS and most files on the m.2 drive)
External hard disk: Transfer of large sizes or even a single large file (GoPro video near 4gb) occurred rather erratically (fluctuating between 90+ and 40+ mb/s) and eventually reaching 0mb/s and pausing there for quite awhile before transferring again at fluctuating speeds, sometimes reaching 0 and pausing again. File transfer completes eventually, but after a ridiculously long time.
The same hard disk works fine with my desktop (writes at a steady 90+mb/s)

External ssd: transfers for awhile before reaching 0 and giving an error code. (works fine with my desktop) (error code: 0x8000745D)

Thumb drive: writes fine at 90-100+mb/s, just like my desktop.  
Notes: File transfer problems mentioned above were from both the m.2 drive and 2.5mm drive, internal transfer from the m.2 to the 2.5mm Samsung 850EVO ran fine. Samsung Magician installed, problems persist with RAPID either enabled or disabled.
 
Solutions I've tried but have not made a difference:
Chkdsk /f /r
Booting into safe mode (transfer problems existed even in safe mode)
Uninstalling and reinstalling usb drivers
Disable/... Read more

Hello,
I have bought this laptop about 2 months ago. Since i bought it, I have noticed that it's performance is not what i should expect.
I mean, i can be in Google Chrome viewing a page, and in the moment i scroll using my mouse, the laptop like freezes for a milisecond and then continues. Same happens when playing videogames, i can be playing at low/ultra details, 60+ frames per second, but every now and then i get a frame drop and then it goes back to where it was before, it's super annoying and shouldn't be happening.
I always thought it was something with the game, that it was not well optimised but it seems to be the computer.
Things i have done:
1. I reinstalled Windows 10 using the software provided by Microsoft.
2. All my drivers are up to date
What could it be? my laptop specs are:
6th Generation Intel Core i7-6700HQ Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.50 GHz)]NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4GB GDDR58GB Single Channel DDR3L 1600MHz (8GBx1)1TB (5400rpm) Hybrid HDD with 8GB Flash
All these things occur with the laptop plugged or not, it doesn't matter. Gaming, i have used Balanced and High Performance battery mode but i don't see any difference. This has happened to me for example in CS:GO, LoL, World of Warships, etc.

This is a benchmark i did with HDTune: http://imgur.com/a/wf68f

A:Dell Inspiron 7559 video stuttering

When you are saying that it is stuttering, does it do this all the time or is it something that will be working and then you get a quick stutter and then things return to normal?  If this is happening, it's most likely just a point in time where the files that the processor needs to access files haven't been loaded into RAM yet.  Your processor then has to wait for the HDD to load the file and continue on from there.  Does Google Chrome do this all the time?  Again, when it first boots or if there is something that computer has to load on the webpage such as Flash or anything like that, it can cause a temporary delay in the time that it is loading.  If it's doing it constantly then it might be something to look at, but once in awhile, it's not uncommon for this to happen during loading.  5400RPM is slowest speeds for HDD and it can cause your computer to have to wait for loading here and there.

Hello, I'm having a small problem with my new Dell laptop.
I can't find the option where I could set my keyboard backlight to stay on constantly. It keeps falling asleep (turning off) after a short period of time. It is really annoying late in the evening as I always have to wake it up. Is there any way I could turn off the automatic sleep mode or atleast prolong it?
Thanks in advance :)

Hi,

I bought a Inspiron 15 7000 Series (7559) less than a month ago. Today, when I was playing an online game, the keyboard suddenly stopped responding while game is still otherwise running perfectly with mouse still responding. After about 30 seconds, the laptop freezes, with sound still playing and fans running at high speed.
After about 5 minutes, game music stopped and turned into a light buzzing sound, fans still running at high speed.  I tried to press the power button to force shut down but had no effect after faithfully holding it down for a good 1 minute. 
The laptop is still buzzing right now and it has been an hour. I will have to wait until the battery is dead.
My question is, what the heck is wrong with this practically brand new laptop? I don't want a buzzing heater on my desk, not at this price. :(
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!!

Hello,

I installed Windows 7 on a 7559 and installed all drivers listed on the support page. Unfortunately, there is no integrated webcam driver listed on the support page. I checked the Device Manager in W7 and did not see any Imagine Devices listed. After calling the support line and explaining  my issue multiple times to the same person I decided to come here for some help.
So, how can I go about getting the integrated webcam in my 7559 to work on Windows 7? Is there a driver available? 
Thanks!

hi, how can I disable the graphics card auto switch (from onboard to dedicated)
I want to use only the dedicated GPU (NVidia 960m) on my laptop.
thanks in advance

A:inspiron 7559 4K display (16GB ram, 960m GPU )

If that's the case (as is common with Insprons), this system is software-controlled - the Intel GPU alone has a connection to the screen and handles all video data -- even if it's processed through the nVidia GPU.  You cannot disable the Intel GPU nor make the nVidia GPU the primary one - the hardware is wired such that the nVidia GPU is a co-processor - not a true discrete GPU.

Hi
I have a new inspiron 7559. Sanity checks like updates and antivirus interference are all good.
The audio driver comes with this maxxsense audio "enhancement" filter. There's a bug in the driver that causes it to re-enable itself after I switch it off. I want to turn all the filtering off and just get my pure sound, but simply opening the config window from the control panel re-enables the master switch. it shouldn't do that: it should stay off when I turn it off.
Can I report this to dell and get a driver bugfix update somehow? I get the feeling dell itself doesn't lurk on this forum much and I'm assuming they won't be seeing this.
