    Dim display

    I was able to solve it by removing the display driver and rebooting. Upon boot up it re-detected the device and it was bright again.

    Dim display

    Has anyone had an issues with the display being too dim? I am comparing this to my 2017 SP. Even at the brightest setting it doesn't seem bright at all.

    Firmware Updates Repeating?

    Is anyone seeing firmware updates repeating coming up in Windows Update? I've installed them a couple times in the last few days. And I know they're old because some have a 2017 date.

    I have an i5/8/256 configuration, and since installing 1803 it's made things very slow and laggy.

    Why Here's how I left Microsoft, went Apple, and became a hypocrite because I switched back.

    Good story. I started using PC's, specifically the IBM PC at age 11. I always used PC's of some sort, but then in 2007 (?) when Apple switched over to Intel, I knew I could run both on a Mac.

    Charging and then not charging?

    OK, so I'm connected to a Surface Dock with an external 4K monitor. I notice that my Surface Pro reports that it's charging, and then stops charging. It seems to be doing this repeatedly over and over.

    I've had success uninstalling the display driver (and delete from disk), reboot and then run Windows Update to re-install the driver. No issues so far.

    SP4 shut itself down

    I didn't have anything particularly demanding running; a few Chrome tabs, Outlook and Skype for Business, when all of a sudden everything went black. Tried to turn the Surface on and it gave me a temperature icon. Hmmm. Edit: it's back up now. Looks like it went into hibernation since all apps...
