    Solved Built in microphones do not work

    Try going into Settings under Cortana and you should be able to access the microphone setup in there.

    Anyone getting more than 144Mbps on 2.4Ghz?

    Woo Hoo! I'm screaming along at 54 Mbps here at work due to ancient infrastructure. But, at home I can get 300.

    July 12 2016 Windows Update Issues Anyone?

    Yes, the graphics driver and another update were released on the 14th. I haven't had any issues with the latest drivers myself, but have read of several folks having new issues with external monitors that will no longer display anything with the new driver. Caveat emptor!

    July 12 2016 Windows Update Issues Anyone?

    I haven't had any issues since updating yesterday--knock on wood--but did not get an updated Intel Graphics driver. The only Intel driver that I picked up was this: Intel Corporation driver update for Intel(R) CSI2 Host Controller. From what I can tell, this is a driver for an Intel signal...

    Surface ethernet adapter and GPU stop working.

    I haven't heard of anyone else with this particular problem, but I would first suspect that something's up with the mechanical connection between the Clipboard and the Keyboard. You could, however, go through your update log to determine what was installed with your last updates and then delete...

    Surface book not detecting dGPU

    I would definitely try to reset it by pressing both the volume up button and the power button simultaneously and holding them for about 30 seconds to let the computer reset all of the peripherals. During the process, it should boot into the UEFI screen and eventually will shut itself off...

    Stability question

    It sounds like everything should be okay with your system, but clearly something isn't quite right. Have you gone into Event Manager to get more detailed information regarding the error. I have had this error occur on my SB exactly once since I bought it in March. I'd look at trying to...

    Video Editing Issues - Premiere Pro

    Oops! Sorry. I missed that one. I wonder how much of this is a SB hardware issue and how much of this is Adobe's sloppy coding. It's probably a combination of both.

    Surface Book Pen - New Functionality

    David, It may depend on which version of OneNote that you're using. The full OneNote app that comes with Office has pen settings under the File tab, Options, Advanced. There you can turn on and off automatic switching between modes. I'm not sure if the Metro UI-based version on OneNote will...

    New Firmware Updates (6/21)

    mtmoowl, my guess would be that it is likely some sort of mechanical issue with the connector, but if the only way to get it to work again is by removing the Clipboard and reattaching it, it could well be something else. When the keyboard quits, do the keys still light up or do they remain...

    Video Editing Issues - Premiere Pro

    I'm not sure whether this will help or not, but have you made the change suggested in the linked video? There is a setting for the GPU that has it always looking for opportunities to slow down or rest in order to preserve battery life. If you turn this off, you may get somewhat better...

    Would Microsoft Sell Surface Book 2 Base Only?

    If I had to guess, Microsoft would probably charge in the $700 - $800 dollar range for this kind of upgrade considering that the base has the large battery, the GPU, keyboard and Touchpad, the various ports, and the hinge mechanism in it. One has also to remember that processing and handling of...

    Still have issues with camera not turning on after overnight sleep

    I'd review your Windows Update logs carefully to see if any of your updates have failed to install. Since the April updates, I have not experienced any further problems with the Windows Hello camera. If you want to be sure that you've got all of the updates, download and run the cumulative...

    Would Microsoft Sell Surface Book 2 Base Only?

    As the majority of components that really matter are in the clipboard, it really wouldn't make sense to sell the base separately as an upgrade. The only real change that you would likely see is a new GPU and that probably wouldn't justify the cost. Most people would want the newest processor...

    Nvidia Driver Update 5/16

    Yep, I noticed it today. I was in Windows Update to look for something else and there it was, waiting to be installed. I can't say that it's made any difference yet, but I rarely run anything that uses the dGPU.
