Dell XPS 15 9570(?) help

Jup, Under the links to bios listed above you will also find the manuals

Actually, the image I was using was 17.1.10... I just made a 17.1.11 USB and I am going to try that out with the updated BIOS and see if I have even luck. I will report back with my findings.

So, trying to install Manjaro with the installer with the nonfree drivers and rebooting without kernel parameters and with acpi_rev_override=1 was unsuccessful.

OK, With which tool do you have this USB stick, Rufus ?
Re-create this stick with ETCHER

I actually was using the SUSE Studio Image maker on another Manjaro Install I have. Is this not sufficient?

The live USB works fine, it's just when the installation is done and I reboot and try to get in when everything goes to crap.

is it possible that we boot from the stick you open the console / terminal and following
execute commandos and post here

lspci -nn
lspci -knn

everything is on the USB stick so you can log in here as well.
We could learn more with the hardware information

Here you are:

Alright, I attempted all of the install options after making the USB with Etcher and updating the BIOS. Still no luck, just black screens every time I try and login.

What happens if you log into the shell instead of gnome (press CTRL-ALT-F2)?

If that login works OK, perhaps try updating the system?

sudo pacman -Syyu

If it's able to update, try rebooting and logging into gnome.

Do you mean " a black screen with a blinking cursor at top left corner"?
If yes, it is Xorg failure or GDM failure. Try to go to TTY

login and run startx.
If it works to Gnome, then it's GDM. Else, post any errors and

cat ~/.local/share/Xorg.0.log
mhwd -li
inxi -SMGxxz

and of course update

I just noticed your current driver is nouveau (free), instead of non-free as you claim.
So you might re-install your driver with mhwd.
It would help all of us if you have read/searched for similar topics and tutorials in this forum (not that external are bogus, but so you do the sensible thing).

petsam is right, you have nouveau installed, which causes the black screen.

You can try adding nouveau.modeset=0 after acpi_rev_override=1 in the kernel parameters.

I have searched for similar topics and I have tried literally everything I have found. If I said free I must've mistyped. I meant nonfree.

Also, I can't login at all... Do you mean booting into command line?

You didn't describe what you already tried (only 2 grub params), so we don't suggest the same.
For example, you should confirm/blacklist nouveau, which is normaly done by mhwd.

That 's what I noticed, correctly. Please read my post slowly, there is no rush.

Yes.
Have you read any tutorial?

Hello,

Simple question, Does Dell have any information on this model working with Linux? Try installing Ubuntu or Mint, Just to see if Linux will boot. If it does, Then before you delete them, Look in grub or any of the logs and see if there is a difference between them and Manjaro.

I had a problem getting my epson printer to work, after a time on manjaro, I installed Kunbuntu and found what they were doing vs what manjaro was doing, Once I made the change I never had a issue with printing on manjaro.

I even have a post on what I did in the forum, Just search for "Epson not printing" or my user name and you will find my answer.

So just compare the two and it will give you the answer. Also search the wiki and forum for you problem, and hopefully a solution will appear.

After you turn on your computer you should see the grub menu, you can edit the kernel parameters by selecting one of the menu entries and pressing 'E'. You can add the nouveau.modeset=0 parameter after 'quiet' and boot with F10. If it boots allright you can follow this post:

You're welcome, glad you could fix it!

Hi, I would like to ask did you manage to make the graphic card(1050ti) work in you XPS 15?
