    Problems with 4k monitor

    I am having problems connecting my Surface Book v1 to a 4k monitor. I first tried connecting to the monitor's DisplayPort input via the Surface Dock 1. I can sometimes get it to display for a minute or two, but it eventually just starts flashing off and on. I then tried connecting using DP on...

    Max external display resolution for Surface Book 1?

    I may be off base here, but I'm gonna assume that since 5120x1440=7,372,800 is less than 4096x2160=8,847,360 then it oughta handle it. Thanks!

    Max external display resolution for Surface Book 1?

    Can the surface Book 1 support an external display at 5120 x 1440 resolution? I would not need the internal display at the same time. Also, same question for the Surface Book 2. Thank you!

    Surface Pro, Surface Go, or another tablet for note taking?

    Thanks for sharing! I am leaning towards the Go. Gonna try and get to Best Buy and handle them both soon. BTW, as an aside, I am disappointed my Surfac3 Book v1 hasn’t worked well for me as a tablet. First, for some reason, it takes 3+ minutes after docking/undocking before it’s usable again...

    Surface Pro, Surface Go, or another tablet for note taking?

    Cool. Thanks. I see a Surface Pro m3 with keyboard on Black Friday sale for $599. Awfully tempting at that price. But, the size of the Go does seem like it might lend itself better to my intended usage. Hmm... decisions. :)

    Surface Pro, Surface Go, or another tablet for note taking?

    Thanks! This is the article that got me thinking the base model might meet my needs: Microsoft Surface Go with 64GB eMMC storage – How much slower is the $399 model? This is the kind of portfolio I was hoping to find for the Go: Google Image Result for...

    Surface Pro, Surface Go, or another tablet for note taking?

    Thanks. It does seem like the Go might be the right option for me. I do wish the screen was a tiny bit larger... maybe 11”, but I suspect it is going to feel signifantly better for working with in a meeting than the Pro. Any opinions on the 4gb/eMMC vs 8gb SSD? I’ve seen some mixed opinions...

    Surface Pro, Surface Go, or another tablet for note taking?

    I am looking for a tablet to complement a Surface Book version 1. Main use will be OneNote for taking handwritten notes, web browsing, email, and some light Word & Excel. My main priority: #1 ... must be stable and quick to turn on and get to work. Nothing more frustrating to me than sitting...

    How do I install the Intel graphics control panel?

    Tried installing the driver from Intel, but I get an error message that "The driver being installed has not been validated for this computer." Thoughts?

    How do I install the Intel graphics control panel?

    I ran across a thread the other day that described how to add a custom display resolution for the Surface Book with 50Hz. Unfortunately, I can't find that thread at the moment. It called for using the Intel graphics control panel. I am unable to figure out how to run/install that utility. Can...

    Any advice? Dual monitors not working through Surface dock.

    Kevin, I'm looking at a 3440 x 1440 monitor myself. Connectivity problems aside, two questions... Does the Surface Book support your LG monitor at 60Hz? What scaling setting do you use? 200%? How do you like it?

    Does the Surface Book work with Thunderbolt 2.0?

    Thanks. I was a little confused cuz i read somewhere that Thunderbolt was the same connector as DisplayPort.
