Does XPS 9550 do triple display with hdmi and displayport?

Q: Does XPS 9550 do triple display with hdmi and displayport?

Can the xps 9550 run the laptop screen and 2 external monitors (one to hdmi, another to thunderbolt/displayport) simultaneously with no problems?
Can someone test this ?

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.

Are there any adapters to do this or ways to do this? I can't seem to find any.

I am buying new monitors, the dell u2414h. Now, while this does have hdmi, I will be connecting multiple monitors together to extend the display from the laptop to give me multiple screens. The problem with this is that it only works if you use displayport and not hdmi, so I need a way to convert the hdmi to displayport or mini displayport.

I will primarily be using these monitors with my laptop that has displayport, so that is why I am getting these monitors and that won't be a problem. I will most likely hook up other laptops to the monitors and hdmi is way more common from what I have seen on laptops than displayport and is why I need a way to go from hdmi to displayport or mini displayport.

Any ideas? Thanks.
 

A:Hdmi to Displayport/Mini Displayport

You can't, HDMI does not support daisy chaining in the manner that DisplayPort does and you can't use a simply adapter to go from HDMI to DisplayPort and get the features of DisplayPort.

A:Having issues w/ Triple Monitor Setup (DisplayPort issue?)

I run a triple monitor setup on my desktop PC. 2 DVI and one HDMI on my GT 640. The one using HDMI goes as follows Mini HDMI on video card to normal HDMI to HDMI to DVI adapter. What I notice is regardless of which monitor is set as primary my BIOS POST screen and the initial Windows Boot screen always shows on the same monitor on one of the DVI ports. The video card determines what monitor the POST screen shows on. For me it depends on how many monitors I have plugged in and what ports they use. I have never seen it where it didn't show. The logon screen then shows on my Primary monitor. I don't use sleep or hibernate so I can't help you with that. Why you don't see your POST screen I don't know, I have seen other people report the same thing though. I don't remember if they found out why though.

Using XPS 15 (UHD, i7) 9550 with a Monoprice USB-C to Displayport cable hooked up to a Dell U2713HM monitor.  Performance is great, except every now and again, the signal drops for a few seconds, turning the screen black. After a few seconds, it returns.  Not sure if this is an issue anyone else has seen.  Graphics drivers and BIOS are updated to the latest versions.

I have the same problem with the XPS13 9350 using a usb-c to hdmi cable. External monitor turns on and off randomly which becomes more pronounced when I close the lid (sleep on close lid is OFF). Funnily enough I tried a longer HDMI cable with Ethernet and I was getting no image at all with lid closed. I also have bios and drivers updated.

On the XPS 15 9550, can an external monitor with Displayport inputs be connect directly into the laptop's USB-C Thunderbolt output using a straight miniDisplayport-to-Displayport cable?  Similarly, can a miniDisplayPort to VGA adapter cable be plugged directly into the USB-C Thunderbolt port to drive older monitors/projectors? Or is the TB15 Dock mandatory in order to get the computer talking to  external video devices through its Thunderbolt port output?

I replaced my monitor with a Dell that has VGA, DVI and DisplayPort. My PC outputs VGA or HDMI, so I'm using an HDMI to DVI cable(previous monitor is VGA and DVI only). My only gripe with this cable is that the DVI end is hard to attach/remove. I can get HDMI-DisplayPort cables or adapters, this would be so much easier to deal with than trying to screw that DVI cable in place, but I need to know if outputting HDMI into the DisplayPort is going to cause any issues with picture quality.

I see either dedicated cables or converter boxes on eBay, converter box would be cheaper and I can use whatever HDMI cable I have on hand.

A:Displayport/HDMI to 1080p LCD TV

Hello & welcome to sevenforums,

What's about duplicate the laptop screen over the Hdmi cable in the Windows 7 display settings, not your video card drivers?
So the laptop will be overscan, but not the digital TV that will have the full screen without any black borders or cutted edges.

But looks the duplicate display will stay at 1366x768 / 60hertz, 32bits colors.

I am trying to connect the HDMI port on my nVidia GeForce GT 640 video card to the DisplayPort input on my HP Compaq L2206tm monitor. This is the reverse of what is expected by cable fabricators who have lots of cables and adapters for the opposite configuration, i.e., DP on the videocard and HDMI input on the monitor. There seems to be a uni-directional vs bi-directional issue involved with DP, but I don't quite understand it. Anyway, the uni-directional choices I am seeing are in the wrong direction. Anybody dealt with this and what is your advice for me?

I have even tried purchasing multiple adapters in the hopes of findingone that worked, even HP's own pricey adapter.  Can I conclude that it is now settled that the HP 8440p with the discreet NVS3100 (not the integraed Intel Graphics) simply cannot be made to pass audio from the DisplayPort to to an HDMI adpter?

If I have an external monitor plugged into my laptop via HDMI the computer refuses to go to sleep. As soon as I tell it to go to sleep it will immediately wake up after a few seconds.

Hi,
I've got an XPS 9550 and I have a HCK T7000+ screen that has a native resolution of 2560 * 1440.
The dell computer is not able to drive this screen at a resolution higher than full hd on the hdmi port.
I've tried with a macbook pro HDMI with the same screen and same cable, it drives it perfectly at 60Hz.

Hi all
Laptop is hooked up to 4k monitor. Since updating the BIOS to 1.1.19 last week, when I turn the monitor off and then back on again later (the laptop stays on but closed during the monitor being off) all the Windows have resized as if they were on the laptop screen.
I can only assume that the HDMI port is now assuming that 'monitor off' means 'switch to laptop display panel' rather than 'wait for instructions'(!), like me opening the lid.
Always worked fine before... switch monitor back on 12 hours after switching off, and the windows are all same size on the big screen and in the same place.
Can Dell confirm whether the way the HDMI monitors activity was changed in the recent BIOS update?
Thanks :)

No-one else had this issue?
Must be some of you who use external monitors for your laptops?

Displayport to HDMI cable connected to my macbook 15" retina does not work.I have tried 2 different cables (from 2 different manufacturers) on 2 different HP ProDisplay P232 monitors.  The HP ProDisplay monitor cannot recognize any video source on the displayport connector. I verified on both monitors that the displayport interface works with a displayport to thunderbolt (mini displayport) on my macbook.  I also verified that the VGA interface works fine with VGA to thunderbolt cable to my macbook. I have been unable to find anything on the Apple support forums about an issue with HDMI to displayport. is this a mac issue or HP ProDisplay P232 issue? Does the displayport to HDMI cable have to be displayport 1.2 only?

I purchased an external monitor on Friday.  It worked on Friday and Saturday. Sunday when I booted up, the external monitor no longer worked. The history appears to show an automatic update occurred overnight.  I was running Windows 8.1.  I upgraded to 10.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the intel video driver, I reinstalled the chipset driver.  I have trimmed the micro HDMI cord as suggested in one of the posts.  I have seen enough posts on the various boards to know my issue does not seem to be an isolated case... but I haven't been able to find an explanation of the cause or a reliable solution.  Any help is appreciated.

Ok I have a video card now that has a DVI output and I know that you can do dual monitors from the card now I was wondering if by adding a second PCI video card I could do triple monitors.

Yes. Provided the PCI card is compatable it works fine.
Thats assuming a recent version of Windows.

Nothing shows on the external monitor no matter what I do or try on either the laptop or monitor?  I have tried this on a Dell E7000 series laptop also with no result on that one either?
Does the HDMI port on Dell laptops support video or do I need to utilise some other means of connecting a second monitor.  Bear in mind there is no VGA output on these laptops.

A:Ad a touch screen to an Eyefinity triple display system

It should work on the desktop. Windows can auto negotiate which screen is a touch screen. Also you have to install tablet services.

To install go to "Uninstall or change a program" then on your left click on "Turn Windows features on or off" then select the box for tablet services and any other services you see that are related to touch screen. Then restart and you should be good to go. Also if you where to do a clean install these services woul turn on automaticly if the monitor was plugdin at the time of instalation. Post what happens.

At the moment I run dual display through VGA, one is monitor, one is the laptop screen. However, I'm looking to use an additional monitor on top of this. I know I have an NVIDIA video card, and onboard Intel graphics. Are both of these being currently used to run a dual-display setup, or not? And would there be a way I could run 3 displays (2 externals + laptop) based on what I have in my system?
Running WIN7 64bit if that helps.

Every time I restart my laptop (this includes sleep/wake up) the brightness level of the display is restored to an "unknown" value (always the same, though). I have tried changing all brightness level settings in all power plans, I disabled the adaptive brightness in advanced power settings - and some other values there - but to no avail. When the laptop restarts/wakes up it stays a few seconds at the desired level, then it drops back to the same value (always 49%). After this, If I manually change the brightness level, it stays only until the next restart/wake up.

Can the Dell XPS 15 9550 w/ 4K Touch Display be configured with both a PCIe SSD and a 2.5" drive?  Dell Chat Support says "yes", but I have also read that the 4K Touch Display requires the 84WHr battery which extends to fill the space of the 2.5" drive. At 4:44, in the YouTube video below, I think we see that there is no room for a 2.5" drive. But, maybe Dell has a different model option that supports 4K Touch and dual HDD. This question has probably been posted before, but I didn't find by searching.

A:Dual HDD in XPS 15 9550 w/ 4K Touch Display

If you want the UHD screen, the larger 84 W-Hr battery is mandatory - you do indeed lose the 2.5" drive bay.  The only way to increase internal storage in this model is with a larger capacity M.2 PCIe/NVMe drive.

A:ATI Radeon 9550 Display Driver problem

Try to do basics first. Uninstall EVERYTHING ATI from add or remove control panel, and then go to device manager and right click all the ATI's and click uninstall.

Then reboot, you'll be in VGA graphics. Install the latest drivers possible fresh install, and reboot. See if that does anything.

If not, turn the PC off and reseat the graphics card in the slot. Try another slot if available. Check BIOS and make sure video settings are set to auto detect whether internal graphics or external graphics (if you have this option)

If nothing finally works I would try updating to SP3 windows xp.

When switching between laptop+external monitor to only laptop screen several times (when needing to leave the office desk for various reasons) things on the external monitor get quite slow. When using Chrome, for example, a new page will scroll noticeably slower, and will often flash maybe half of the screen as it's loading a new page. Even closing and opening Chrome again doesn't fix the issue. And it only happens when Chrome is displayed on the external monitor - on the laptop screen it seems to work fine.
I have the 9550, with 4K screen. My external monitor is 2560x1440 32", which means it scales at 100% whereas the 4K laptop screen goes to 250%. I know that many of the issues with scaling are Windows and not Dell, but I highly suspect a driver issue.

Hi,
i could not manage to extend my laptop dell xps 15 9550 through TB15 dock to two monitors (U2717D) in 4K. The max resolution that I got is 2K on each monitor.
I tried all the combo with mDP, DP and HDMI, the best I got is 4K for 1 monitor.
The techcenter assured me that using mDP and DP, TB15 can deliver 4K in dual display at 60hz and with HDMI 4K in dual display but at 30hz.
I got nothing on these from intel HD graphics control panel but only 2K at 59/60hz (which is the max available).
However, on the dell website, the TB15 do deliver 4K in dual display at 60hz.
If anyone managed to configure the 4K resolution in multiple displays, extended desktop (as display mode), please let me know

As a workaround... Try disabling Switchable Graphics in BIOS. Part of the problem for me on Dell Precision 7710 (AMD/Intel video) had to do with unable to display 3 external monitors concurrently with Laptop's monitor (for total of 4). I made sure I was running latest firmware of laptop and followed the docking station's driver/firmware updates (found elsewhere here), and I have far fewer issues. I also found that the hub's Realtek GB Ethernet only ran at full 1GB speed when the power plan for Winidows 10 was set to High Performance.

Unfortunately while using this adapter the fans run at a very high speed, approximately 80%, and are therefore loud and disturbing during meetings and desk work. I have it connected to only an HDMI monitor and a USB mouse receiver. The fans also run constantly when using the built-in USB and HDMI ports, but at a tolerable level. I will have to return this item without a fix, so could someone at Dell please advise if there is a solution or if this is a known issue that will be reviewed? I have updated both the Thunderbolt firmware and software and applied all Windows Updates. Thanks

I got my precision 5510 a few days ago.Updated to the latest Win10 and i have the same problem-the Premier Color Soft is no longer launching.This is utterly annoying since uninstalling and then installing it again it completely messed up my color profile-currently totally out of tune and blueish.I don't want to downgrade to Win7 just to get the calibration.

I have a Dell XPS 15-9550 with 512Gb SSD, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M, and Intel 530. The SSD is encrypted using Bitlocker. I use it with an external monitor Dell U3415W. I’ve had intermittent problems with internal display blackout since day 1. I’ve had to force power down (10 seconds on power button) dozens of times. Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 cycles to come back.

As of a couple of days ago it appears the internal display has completely stopped working. There is back light but no image and no mouse. How do I recover this display?

HELP!!!!

I recently purchased a Dell n5010 and i cant seem to connect it onto my 40" Bravia HD LCD.

i'm trying to connect it via HDMI.. but somehow the laptop doesn't seem to display on my Bravia.. At first i thought it was the cable issue, but the HDMI cable works perfectly fine on the DVD player. Ive tried all short cut keys but it wouldn't help ?

I am using Windows 7 (64Bit)

Could someone guide me in solving this issue..
Would appreciate the help ..

A:No display via HDMI

Hi, welcome to the forums

Does your Bravia have more than 1 HDMI port? If so you may need to enable HDMI for all ports (I know I have to with my Pioneer).

When you say "Shotrcut keys" I take it your talking about the function (FN) key and F-Key combinations?

I'm trying to set up a clone display on my TV to play SNES games using the emulator on my PC.

I got everything working with an HDMI cable, but there is a slight display lag on the television
significant enough to make the games unplayable.

I'm having to use a very long HDMI cable for this because the computer and television
are pretty far apart. Should I look into investing in a better HDMI cable?
 

A:Second display lag via HDMI

Quality and length of cable can affect the display. You also need to be aware that there are different cable types (thus different ratings).

I have my computer plugged into a monitor via a DVI to HDMI adapter. That is, I have a DVI cable running from my computer to the DVI end of the adapter, which then plugs into an HDMI port on the monitor. My problem is this: regardless of what resolution I choose--1920x1080 is the highest supported by the monitor--the image will not fill the entire screen, thus leaving me with black bars on all sides. Does anybody know a solution to this problem?

I have been doing a lot of research but all I find is B/S like when they were invented, royalty rights, extra pins ect. but not just some basics answers to some basic questions.

I have a video card and display both with HDMI and Display Port ability.
At the present time I'm using HDMI to HDMI.

1. Can I use HDMI and Display Port using 2 cables at the same time on the same screen and is it a advantage or disadvantage?
Please explain.

2. If I just use Display Port will it work better that just HDMI?

I don't have a Display Port to Display Port cable at this time.
I will buy one if it will make things better.

I'm not having a problem at this time. I'm just trying to get the most out of my hardware.

1 monitor 1 cable

since DP and HDMI are both digital, I guess there is no advantage either way (unlike analog vs digital).

2 outputs usually means dual monitor support, although you'd have to check the manual. Dual screens is the best upgrade I've ever made, esp for my C4D work - also good for watching TV whilst surfing !

BTW although I mainly use DVI, I had to buy a HDMI lead recently to test some gear. I was surprised to see a note in the package to the effect 'warning do not hot swap this lead - power down all equipment before connecting'. Apparently there's some kinda live detecting pin that can cause probs when hot plugging.

Hi
I would like to use a spare 26" TV as my monitor, it is a home office desk so currently have a Belkin VGA KVM switch connected to personal desktop and work Surface Pro (after buying an active adapter for VGA to HDMI).
I am trying to keep the KVM switch and find an adapter that will take VGA from PC and display via HDMI on the TV, this seems to be a much more difficult thing to find.
Just wondering if anyone else has this type of construct working and how to get the TV to show something. Passive adapters do not get a signal to the TV or even the monitor in situ if I switch input port

You should be able to use it as a primary monitor (and I bet it looks fantastic too). The sound I am not sure about...if you want to test yourself than that might be the best. No new driver should be needed unless your driver you installed turns out to be faulty...

Just purchased a new Mobo (Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe). Haven't bought the CPU. I am waithing on the new 22nm models. After taking a close look at the display outputs on the mobo I have a choice of HDMI or Display Port. None of my existing monitors have ports for that. Soooo I guess I get a new display.

What should I be looking at as far as cables and the choice between HDMI or Display Port. I am not familiar with either one. Also I am assuming the cabling is different for the two ports.

A:Display Port or HDMI

You can find adapters to allow you to use either with DVI. If your current monitor needs replacing anyway, an HDMI-native model will be cheaper than the DP version.

It can get more complicated if you have plans for multiple monitors down the road.

So I have my new computer hooked up to my 22'' Vizio HDTV, and every 5-10 minutes the screen starts flashing horizontal stripes of different colors, or sometimes it's kind of like a melting rainbow effect starting from the top of the screen. When I turn off the TV (which takes longer than usual) and turn it back on everything is fine for a few minutes then it starts again. I have no idea what's wrong with it, it was working fine on VGA, but VGA quality sucks. I have an nvidia geforce gt 220. I have no idea how to fix this problem. Should I switch to DVI, and would it have the same quality and fill up the whole screen like HDMI? Thanks for the help in advance.

You will need a signal converter of some type. A simple wire cable with different connectors on each end will not work. A VGA output has three analog video signals. An HDMI input expects all digital signals.

I'm using a Dell U3415W monitor. My video card is AMD Radeon RX480. The monitor is connected via DisplayPort to my computer. The monitor is connected via HDMI to my work laptop. When I want to switch over to HDMI, it acts as if I shut off the monitor on the Displayport shifting everything over to my secondary monitor. It causes no problem, but drives me nuts because when I switch back over to DIsplayPort, I have to move my open programs around again. Is there any simple way to make this stop? If I don't use DisplayPort, and instead use HDMI/DVI combination, the behavior described does not happen. I'm guessing that is just the way it is, but I'm hoping there is an easy way to make it stop.

What HDMI port are you using? One on motherboard or one coming directly from GPU? This almost has to be a graphics driver problem.
Why would you try installing drivers in 7 compatibility mode? We are talking 8.1 here right? Have you tried drivers from manufacturers site?
A laptop or desktop? Motherboard and GPU make/model?
So, so many details you've left out.
