i have problems with my new Dell XPS 15:
6th Generation Intel Core i5-6300HQ Quad Core
8GB (1x8G) 2133MHz DDR4 Memory
1TB 5400RPM Hard Drive + 32GB Solid State Drive
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M with 2GB GDDR5
From the first start i notice some slowing in general (high memory use without working, boot times too long )
The slowing increse when i connect a monitor through HDMI port.
A clear sign of this, is visible by right-clicking on desktop. Without HDMI, the flag opens instantly, with HDMI connected, the system show the loading icon for 1 second and after opens the flag.
The monitor i use is a Philips 244E1 - Model n° MW1244T
I try to upgrade the drivers of graphics card with last relesed, but nothing is change.
I don't know what i have to do, it's not normal that a machine with this kind of setup have this kind of slowing,can you help me?
It can be a fabrication problem?
Boot times too long: If the system came with McAfee LiveSafe, get rid of it and use the Microsoft Defender that comes with Windows. McAfee is a known performance killer.
When you connect an external monitor, you're adding appreciably to the GPU workload - it WILL slow the system down.
Probably the single best improvement you could make is to ditch the cache SSD and replace it with a 256G M.2 PCIe SSD - and run the OS from it.
