    I was interstate and watching some videos when I noticed that my Surface 3 had become detached from the bottom of the frame. It was also pointed out that the whole screen had bulged outward, but the Surface still operated. I was able to transfer all files back to my laptop and will use that exclusively.

    The tablet is out of warranty so I won't be sending it to MS, so I'll just take it home, pack it up and there it will rot.

    Has anyone else's Surface had a similar problem?

    Have found out the battery is the culprit, so rather than root around with it, I just went and bought another tablet.

    Ouch, not even another Surface device. Just "...another tablet..."

    I couldn't afford a new Surface as I was budget restricted, and the new tablet was under $500 (but more than I budgeted for) and was the only one under $500 that would read the portable hard drive (even though an adaptor is required).
