    I was poking around in Administrative Events in the Event Viewer of the Administrative Tools (control panel) on my Surface RT and was surprised how many errors there are. Seems like my RT has a new error every few minutes. Scary thing is they are all different errors and warnings. Wouldn't even know where to start on trying to problem solve or isolate. Should this be a concern? Can other Surface RT users look and see if they are experiencing this as well?

    So I am the only one that has errors and warnings in my Surface RTs Event Viewer ?

    That is concerning as there are a lot of them.

    Mine is always littered, but most I'm unaware of until I look at the event viewer.

    Unless there disk errors I wouldn't worry to much. Is your surface is running ok ?

    My Surface Pro has lots of errors. Most can be ignored. The only ones I'm paying attention to are from the disk controller for my Sandisk 64 GB mSD card. It seems to be working OK but throws errors quite often. If it gets much worse, I'll try to have Sandisk warranty the card.

    Sandisk cards tend to be very slim and as such don't cause a solid contact inside the SP. My ghetto fix on this was to take a piece of black electrical tape about 3/4 of an inch long and stick the 1st quarter inch to the top of the SDCard then make a loop with the rest. Once I insert the card the loop hangs out so I can easily pull the card out. This create a tighter fit and SDCard disconnections no longer happen.

    As others have said, the Event logs almost always filled with errors and warnings of some kind, most of which can be ignored.

    Mine seems to run fine but once in a awhile I will hear a notification (The bell sound if that's a way to describe it) like there was some error, but I don't get any visual notification of an error.

    I get the 'bong' sound when I have a network drive open on the desktop. Sometimes the surface looses connection. This brings up a error box and causes the 'bong' but I don't see anything on screen until I go to the desktop.

    So long as the bong doesn't smoke you should be fine.

    That's an Event Log. Most of what's in there are Events. Not Errors. Windows logs a lot of stuff, most of it is normal. If you're having some actual issue, then the event log might help troubleshoot what it is. Otherwise it's fine.

    You should see the logs on a normally functioning Linux box :)
