Feedback on the Dell Inspiron 5558 - Tulip BDW 15

Asked by Ivan on 2015-09-18

Nvidia drivers/bumblebee/Nvidia Optimus are not working.

Firstly: Unity doesn't load after log in.
Secondly: After reinstalling drivers - black screen
Thirdly: Purging nvidia drivers, Unity doesn't load again.

Same problem with different desktop environments. Sorry Ubuntu, I was really keen on trying your software but with issues like this I'm forced to migrate back to Windows.

Sorry to hear that, I would like to suggest you to open a bug against this, it could be that your card is way newer than the currently supported model.
Another possible solution is go to NVIDIA[1] for the latest driver.
