    HI there,

    First time poster... Just got my Surface pro. The problem is that the screen, when holding the tablet in landscape orientation, is showing every second vertical line of pixels as black. This creates an interlacing effect so that edges of windows and text look very strange.

    You can see a screenshot here:

    Zoom in a bit and look at the word "apps" on the left.

    This isnt a browser thing as it happens on every window, and desktop. IT seems to be there at lower resolutions as well. ITs just every second line of pixels, evenly spaced.

    Any ideas how to fix this? I tried downloading intel drivers, but the intel control panel doesnt show.

    My thought is that a ribbon cable is loose or the digitizer is going bad. More than likely the digitizer.
