[XPS 15 9550]Display keeps flickering after upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04

Jump to solution

I have moved from windows to Ubuntu recently and I have installed Ubuntu 16.04 on my new Dell xps 15 9550 laptop. Everything works perfect except the display. It keeps flickering. maybe the problem is with the NVIDIA graphics.  Will someone be able to help me with this issue. Thanks

I recently upgraded from 14.04 LTS to 16.04 LTS. But my Settings details still shows version 14. My kernel and release all show up to date. Can someone assist with this and what do I need to do?

Kernel - 4.4.0-22-generic
