I've had my SP3 docking station now for a little over a month, and it just seems like my issues keep getting worse. Yes, all my drivers and updates are up to date, so it isn't that. So this is what I've been experiencing. Any suggestions would be great, but in the end, it isn't my SP3, my monitor, or my monitor cable (MDP to HDMI) - it has to be the docking station. Lately my SP3 will not boot while docked. It freezes at the "Surface" black screen. Only way to get out of it is to power down holding the power button, undock and reboot. Monitor tends to flicker, then goes off for a second or two, then comes back. Unplug the MDP cable from the dock, as well as the power, and it seems to work OK when powering back up. Right now I have the MDP cable plugged into the port directly on the SP3. That seems to work, but if I didn't want a $200 docking station, this would be fine. It defeats the purpose of the dock. And finally, I have to say that MS Technical Support is the worst I have experienced - ever. I know I am talking to kids being paid slave wages in the Philippines (which is terrible in itself) but they have NO solutions to offer me. I have spent hours on the phone trying to get these issues resolved to no avail. So hopefully some of you out there in the community can offer up some advice. Thanks.
