XPS15 9550 - NVidia G-Sync on External G-Sync Monitor

Q: XPS15 9550 - NVidia G-Sync on External G-Sync Monitor

Hi all,
can anyone tell me or point me to a source that will give me clarity on the question if the GTX960M in the XPS15 9550 does support NVidia G-Sync via the USB-C/TB3 Port? Of course I would need an adaptor from USB-C to DP if the Screen only supports DP as Input but the question here is about the G-Sync capability of the XPS15/the GTX960M.
Thanks in adance

Preferred Solution: XPS15 9550 - NVidia G-Sync on External G-Sync Monitor

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: XPS15 9550 - NVidia G-Sync on External G-Sync Monitor

According to nVidia, the minimum GPU for G-sync is the GTX965m.

The notebook mainboard must also support G-sync -- something I suspect the 9550 does not.

Hi
So I bought this XPS15 laptop (i5, 4K touchscreen) to work with. But when I attach it to my HP27xw monitor with HDMI the monitor screen looses sync every few seconds. It goes black for 2 seconds and turns on again. 
What I tried so far:
- Updated BIOS and all FW on laptop
- Tried different laptop on my monitor using same cable (Works fine)
- Tried different HDMI cables to connect
I still have warranty. Its very annoying, because I need this laptop to work with the monitor to be able to do my job. (business owner)

Hello,
Can the XPS 15 9560 with NVIDIA GTX1050 run, or be configured to run, an external g-sync monitor in G-sync mode thru the thunderbolt 3 to a Display Port connection ?
A previous question indicated that the pre-2017 XPS-15 9550 could not.  I understand currently HDMI does not support g-sync.  Also, the "Display" menu option that includes the  "Set up G-SYNC"  in the NVIDIA control panel on my XPS15 9560 is not visibly available, along with other options under that category, as is shown in the NVIDIA control panel for my desktop GTX970 unit.

I'm using an external monitor that scales at 100% (1440p 32"). The internal monitor is 4K, so scales at 250%. In a day I might need to plug and unplug the external monitor (from HDMI port) several times, and after a few times, it seems to struggle with switching between the scaling of external and internal monitors. On Chrome, for example, scrolling sometimes is noticeably lagging, and new pages will flash multiple times as they are loading. Moving Chrome over to the internal monitor (with 250% scaling) and everything seems to work fine. Restarting Chrome doesn't change the issue. A whole reboot is necessary.
I would guess it's a driver issue. I also have light screen flickering, though I only notice it when not using the external monitor.

Hey everyone,
Unfortunately, the port on the 9550 is HDMI 1.4 (max resolution of 1920x1080 for external monitors). I recently purchased a Thunderbolt to HDMI 2.0 adapter in an attempt to get around this, but I have not been able to figure out how to get any higher resolution so far. According to the NVIDIA control panel, outputs to both the screen and the HDMI port are being handled by the integrated graphics, which I suspect might be part of the problem. Still no luck after changing the default GPU in the global settings to the NVIDIA processor.
Has anybody had any luck getting their HDMI output set to run from the NVIDIA GPU?
Note: This is the model with the FHD screen (1920x1080 native resolution).

I just took delivery of the system a few weeks ago (coming from a 2012 XPS 17 l702x that's showing its age, even with 16GB ram), and no issues with it of any importance but I do have a question that I'm very curious about. The Nvidia adapter (GeForce GTX 960M) is supposed to be a selling point, right? So why is it when I open the control panel to see what programs it is used for, it is basically only Chrome and all other programs the Intel with no option to choose. 
Am I missing where to change a setting to allow me to choose to at least have the option to use it?
On a positive note, the laptop is a peresonal computer but went with this one for muscle to run some CPU intense programs, like autoCAD for work. I like lots of visible "acreage" on the screen so the 4k monitor is a great change from the HD of the l702x. I have been going back and forth chatting with Dell support, having a hard time getting through the flow-chart responses to try and ask a simple question of if the system will extend the display to a second screen in 4k, and is so, what will I need hardware wise.
The final result from tech support was I need a  Thunderbolt 3-DisplayPort adapter and get a 4k device with DisplayPort input ( Turns out, that's not cheap), as the onboard HDMI output does NOT support HDMI 2.0. This is all while he knew I had (have) a Dell DA200 adapter.

Hi
I got a Vundo Virus on my XP desktop (currently using my Vista Laptop) and it took some doing, but MalwareBytes seems to have cleaned it up.
I have notice two seemingly residual problems (at least I never had these problems before)

1. Live Sync doesn't sync the files.
I have been syncing the XP desktop to the Vista laptop and never had an issue, in fact it was one of the MS programs that I thought actually worked really well.
Now, everything says that it's working but nothing is syncing.
I checked the Port Status, Initiate Connection shows OK on all 4 ports, but Accept Connection has Blocked on all 4.
When I stop and restart Live Sync, I can see the Vista laptop goes thru all of the files, but does nothing after.
If I do the same on the XP, it seems to look and find no files to sync.
I have tried uninstalling and re-loading on the XP, no help.

2. My Windows 6.5 phone would not sync with ActiveSync either.
I found a troubleshooting post that said to uncheck in USB->PC "Enable advanced network functionality", so I did and the phone did sync, but before it did a warning came up on the phone saying that this would completely delete all contact, calender and mail data and they would be re-loaded with the sync (which IT did - took forever).

Did this Trojan screw with my syncing ability in a general way?

Thanks
Randu

So like my Desktop could be checked off as well as my My Picture's folders.. instead of just having one "Sync" folder.

Hi,
I've got a problem with Windows 7 service pack 1 machines that were installed between 2011 and 2015 using Sync Center.
On these machines, I do not get either
1. Sync Center icon in the taskbar
2. Sync Partnerships shown in Sync Center (accessed through Control Panel).
Sync does run, and the CSC cache contains an offline copy of the files. I simply need access so I can identify and troubleshoot Sync issues as the user.
A new imaged machine since 2016 does not have this problem.
We are running Lenovo machines and am aware of the Rapidboot issue, however that software was only installed on laptops and the problem is with both desktop and laptops.
I believe it may be down to Windows updates applied between 2011 and 2015.
From a machine that is NOT working, I have listed all the WSUS updates below that were install. This list however is approx. 150 updates and I do not want to have to remove each individually to find the problem. It may also not resolve the problem once the
update has been removed if I could even identify the update.
I have read that the following updates could cause problems, however after removing these two it made no difference.

Okay, this one is a doozy. We had our storage server OS drive crash on our domain which required a reinstall. Luckily the data stores were all there still on a separate RAID, so it was just a matter of redoing the shares after the reinstall. However
we ran into a problem with several laptop users.

As soon as they plugged into the network today, all the work they did during the outage appears to be gone. They appear only to have access to the files on the network (which of course isn't current). As a test, I've tried disconnecting them from
the local network to check their offline files (disabling wireless and unplugging the dock) and they appear to lose access to everything as a result now... both desktop and files.
I've attempted a sync in Sync Center but it simply says "Sync Pending" and hangs there.

When I try to navigate to view my offline files on the system through the Sync Center interface, it says "The system cannot find the file specified."


Out of curiosity, I tried manually navigating to Windows\CSC and access is denied. Even when attempting to take ownership as local admin, it still doesn't want to let me in.

As many of the solutions suggest, I know I could delete the cache and format the db and sync fresh from our network, but they will lose out on all the changes they've made to their documents over the past week or so. They may lose out on a significant

Hi Folks,

I use Bittorrent sync to sync my music folder across two computers. BTSync has managed to screw up, however, so now I need to sync these two folders such that no files are deleted, missing files are populated in the respective computer, and where conflicts occur (i.e. files are not identical), I'll either choose which one to keep, or just the latest version is kept.

In the past I'd probably use xxcopy to do something like this. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance...

A:how to sync partially sync'd folders

I use Beyond Compare to keep folders/files in sync, which is a 2-pane wonderfully powerful and wonderfully intuitive and simple to use product that can do anything you want.

You can update-to-left/right, or mirror-to-left-right, or simply compare and decide for yourself what you want to do.

You can also compare files (not just TXT files but other file types as well), with the two files presented in a side-by-side comparison so that you can decide what you want to do.

You can filter the display to show all, differences only, or equals only. You can also filter what gets compared (e.g. if you only want to compare *.FLAC, ignoring *.MP3, you can do that as well).

It's not free, but it does have a free trial. Give it a shot.

I cannot recommend it strongly enough. Been using it forever.

I will start at the beginning, it has been a frustrating couple of days since I had to reformat my hard drive.

I reformatted and reinstalled Windows XP Pro sp1. I put the Microsoft firewall up to get the MS updates, and then I reinstalled Norton. I have a bug in my system that seems to be contained, for now that is.

I reinstalled office XP, and then i downloaded the update (SP3). I am not getting an alert that says that something is trying to get access to my Outlook contacts. I assume that it is my Hotmail account (yes, I do have the ability to download). I get the alert, click "OK" four or five times, and then Outlook locks up.

When I reformatted, I lost the software Sprint gave me to sync my Samsung i500 with Outlook. When I contacted them, they said tough, I had to buy more software. Frustrated, I broke down and bought Chapura. Now, I am probably so frustrated that I cannot get it started to sync even once.

Microsoft is now ignoring my requests for help to gain access to MSN mobile through my handheld. Does anyone have any infomration on how to get to msn mobile even though mobile.msn.com does not take me to a personalized homepage to get my information?

I am an intermediate user, so I know my way around a bit. I have a hijack this log available, as well as a Belarc run. Let me know if you need anything to help me with this problem. I am just frustrated.

Well... I am still going trhough some tough times with my monitor concening the geometry.

I have read the owners manual of my DELL TRINITRON thoroughly and have tried every setting they have, including PINCUSHON, KEY BALANCE, KEYSTONE etc... etc... and after trying to get this thing to look sharp... at least from a geometric perspective... is very frustrating.

If I adjust one thing... the other seems off. I have spent hours... and although my monitor has one of the clearest, sharpest images I have seen.... the vertical and horizontal lines just don't seem to line up as well as they should.

I have never bumped or moved my monitor. I even reset the monitor to factory specs.... and still.... I just can't seem to lne things up.

So... are our monitors always supposed to look perfectly s"symmetrical"... both vertical and horizontal? What would you do in this situation? Do issues like this occur often with a monitor?

Any help very much appreciated.

For the longest time I've backed up my PC on my SimpleTech 250GB external hard drive, which is USB powered (plugs into two ports) I recently installed XP on my Mac so I formatted the external drive and backed up my Mac with Time Machine on the it.

Anyways, now I want to sync it back with my PC. I connected it, and I could hear the drive attached noise, and it also shows the 'Safely Remove Drive' option, however it isn't listed under My Computer. In the device manager, I can see it under Disk Drives as 'Hitachi HTS.... USB Device'. I checked to update drivers and it said everything was up to date and it claimed that it was working properly.

Any ideas on how to format it so that my PC will list it under My Computer?!

Thanks in advance!!!

I am running an HP a6720f and trying to sync my photos to an external hard drive. I have tried to use both SyncBack and simply copying folders. In each instance, the process seems to start fine and initially copies well, but within a short time, it slows to a near halt. In all cases, my DPCs are jumping up from being insignificant (varying from 0-5%) to being around 35%, with hardware interrupts around 16%.

I am not running any other programs when this happens. All I want to do is backup my pictures.

The drive is a 500gb SimpleDrive. When I first boot the computer, I have no trouble accessing the drive or any files on the drive.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

There is a fix for this if your system is suitable :
You encounter problems when you move data over USB from a Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer that has an NVIDIA USB EHCI chipset and at least 4GB of RAM

A good friend of mine has a monitor out of sync problem, meaning he has to change the resolution too 1024 by 768 and refresh rate to 60hertz. What should he do if the screen is black and he cannot get to the desktop to change settings. The computer won't even start in safe mode.
Thanks

I believe there is a option to start the PC in VGA mode or something like that which places the video quality at it's most basic to allow you to boot up.

I have this very old PC that I want to get working again for my kids. I don't care if I have to lose any data on it, everything was backup and scanned. However I've done system restores and factory resets (Built in) but these never got rid of what I remember being a virus infection that seemed to be handled but I doubt it fully has. It's an old computer, but I feel certain with help it can be useful for my family once again.

Is there any free program, that can automatically synchronize the file changes in the specific folder (including all the subfolders) in my internal hard drive to my external hard drive when it's plugged in? I mean, that I use my external hard drive only when I'm copying files to it, not all the time. It's so laborious to copy the changed files file by file to the external hard drive with Windows . I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

Try this program:

Running Intel Core2 Quad, 8 Megs Ram with GeForce 9800X video card and SyncMaster 245t monitor. System is 18 months old and has run without a hitch until now.
Now computer boots up normally and runs for about 5 minutes then screen goes black and power button starts flashing indicating the monitor has lost sync with the card. Hard drive continues spinning but will not respond to any key entries. Only way to correct is switch the power off and reboot. When rebooting to safe mode screen problem doesn't seem to happen. When screen is working graphics are superb. Only thing which changed which I can think of is I get regular Windows auto updates.
Have tried the following:
1. Swopped screens - same problem with alternate screen.
2. Removed, cleaned and replaced card
3. Replaced cable between card and screen
4. Installed latest Nvidia driver
5. Restored Windows to a previous config
6. Re-installed Vista Home Premium
7. Tried installing Vista 7 but screen blacks out before installation can finish
8. Installed new hard drive and re-installed Vista on the clean drive - no problems until Windows updates then same problem occurs. Has anyone experienced similar problem?
Any suggestions on what next to try?http://www.techsupportforum.com/imag...es/1-upset.gif

Because I didn't think so, but now it seems maybe they do:

Windows 8.1 .bat file glitched

The only thing I can think of is that this person was using an MS account and had Synced his Settings including File Associations, so that when he did a Fresh Install of Windows 8, and logged in with the MS account, it ruined his File Association. We've tried everything to set the association to default, but maybe the OS is resetting it to what it was when it was Synced.

Anyone concur? Because I never thought File Associations were being synced, if this is the case it would explain a few unsolvable problems that have cropped up lately.

A:Does "Sync Your Settings" also Sync File Associations?

Hello Jon,

Nope. File associations are not synced. At least not on any of my systems.

Main Questions:
What is causing the Hyper Transport Sync Flood?
What is causing the BIOS Recovery to start?
Is it a fault with one of my components, or do they just not agree with each other?

Hey everyone, I recently just installed a new graphics card into my PC. Unfortunately, I can't run it at the moment, so I can't get fully accurate specs.

MSI 770-G45 Mobo
10GB RAM - 1333MHz DDR3: 3x 2GB Corsair Modules
1x 4GB XMS3 Corsair Module
Old graphics card: Intel Radeon 5570
New graphic card: Intel Sapphire HD 6770

Processor: AMD ADX250OCGMBOX Athlon II X2 250 - 3.0 GHz AM3 CPU

I've had my mobo overclocked all of the time with the old card for over a year with no problems. I've underclocked it for now to see if that will make a difference. The new graphics card requires a connection to the PSU, which the previous one didn't, and the reason that I suspect it's the graphics card at fault is because my monitor started to flicker before going fully white and crashing.
I've investigated a little bit and have come to the conclusion that my graphics card is overheating (after 10 minutes of use?), and when I restart my PC, I get a black screen with all of my PC specs and a message saying:
A Hyper Transport sync flood error occured on last boot. Press F1 to Resume
I've asked a friend, but want another opinion on this. He said it's because of lack of cooling within my PC.
What can I do to fix this?

EDIT: Every time I restart now, It com... Read more
