    The message was associated with the shortcut for detaching the clipboard. When I clicked on it it went to a MS page of things to try and number 1 was check to see if there are updates. Which there were and I installed those and after the reboot the message went away. When I did have the message it still allowed me to detach the clipboard. I'm wondering if anyone else had this error.

    I guess nobody else had that error. It was the first I saw an error that said hardware failure.

    Use the 2 button power off technique and it will go away.

    The first item in troubleshooting said checks for updates. I did that and the updates install the error went away and didn't return.

    Just had this happen to me. Took 3 tries with 2 button power on to get it rebooted. Since the last update about once a day I have to detach then reattach the keyboard to get the keyboard back on but this was a first.
