    The driver disk that came with my XPS 15 didn't include the drivers for the touchpad. I went to the dell support site and downloaded the touchpad drivers from there. After that multi-touch was activated. (two finger zoom in/out, two finger scroll...etc)

    not sure why the drivers were not on the disk. Love the touch pad, very responsive and customizable.

    Is anyone having any problems with your dell xps 15 recognizing the Nvidia GeForce GT540M Graphics Card? I did the free edition of FutureBenchmark but it only sees the Intel Graphics Card that comes with the dell xps. even with my games as well and the HWMonitor. Any ideas?

    Yes - turn it on! ;) Right click on the home screen - NVidia Control Panel - Manage 3D settings - Program Settings -

    Select program from list or add one manually.
    Select High-Performance NVidia Processor.

    Apply. Done. That should do it. Let us know how u get on.

    Hmm your right. Never used that feature before so I guess thats why I missed it. You could try getting drivers from the Synaptics site directly. Worth a try.

    Anybody have issues with the wireless networks that the L502x can see? I have a Lenovo W510 sitting right next to my L502x, and also a Vostro 1510.

    The Lenovo sees 6 wireless networks (2 of them are in my house, both full bars).

    The Vostro sees 4-5 wireless networks. 1 of my networks are 4/5 bars, the other one 5/5 bars.

    My L502x shows 1 wireless network, 3/5 bars, and that is from the wireless router that is literally 3 feet away. It sees no other networks. If I move more than 20 feet, or a wall away, I can no longer connect.

    I plan on contacting dell support tomorrow for this, but if anybody has encountered this, your advice would be helpful. I have already tried both Intel.com drivers and the ones on the support.dell.com website.
