    Surface book and dock adapters

    Hi there, Looking for anyone who has had success with 3 in 1 mini displayport to vga/hdmi/dvi adapter that works with both the surface book and dock. Before I did any research I bought an adapter but (I assume) it was a 'passive' one and the vga port is the only one that works. After looking...

    Post all (external) monitor issues here

    I have a variety of monitors/projectors that I want to connect to (at home and at work) with the surface dock but unfortunately none of them have display/mini display ports, only HDMI VGA and DVI. So I went out and bought some adapters and it seem HDMI and DVI do not work in the dock or when...

    Problem: Surface pro only works plugged in!

    Update: The day the surface pro was released in Australia I rang tech support and see if they could replace my surface pro. They informed me that I was the first person to use the surface tech support and that they would replace it. It took 2 weeks to the day from sending my pro, to receiving a...

    Surface pro feels 'electric' when charging!

    I thought it may have been because of my US charger I use (with an Australian adapter). I read it seems to happen in some apple products as well because of the metallic cases. I'm concerned because this is a replaced surface pro as my first had a battery that failed in the first 2 weeks. In both...

    Problem: Surface pro only works plugged in!

    Problem with buying a new 1 (and even returning the old one to place of purchase) is the gst tax (for goods over $1000 in Aus) + shipping costs which won't be covered by the refund obviously. Also, the first surface pro I imported from the US took about 20 days, although that was probably...

    Problem: Surface pro only works plugged in!

    Update: After following the tech support options from microsoft a couple of weeks ago (which didn't fix the problem) I contacted Microsoft Australia again. I asked them about a replacement, and there are two options. 1) Wait until it is released in Aus, contact tech support again the day of...

    Problem: Surface pro only works plugged in!

    I have change the battery options a few different ways with no success. I have also reset the tablet to factory settings. The battery must just be dodgy. Gonna be a lot of effort sending it back, but we shall see how painless/ful this will be.

    Problem: Surface pro only works plugged in!

    Hi, Here's my problem. I've had my surface pro for about 3 weeks and it worked fine. 2 days ago I went to use the pro and it wouldn't turn on. Obviously I plugged the charger in and started using it. It says the battery is at 84% Plugged in, charging, but the moment I pull the power cable out...
