Try letting the battery die. Do what you can to really drain it empty. Then with the power cord unplugged press and hold the power button for 15 seconds to discharge anything remaining. After that plug the power cord back in and wait 5-10 minutes and see if it will power up then.
Good deal. Well you have exhausted my limited ideas. Hopefully someone else will be of more help as I know the SB2 is a great device and hopefully will meet your needs. Regardless please post back as to the outcome as I'm interested in how this works out for you sir.
I'm not sure what the speed of the built in card reader is but what you might consider trying is a USB 3.1 Card Reader. The only issue is I did a quick search and could only find it in Type C so that would cost you an external hard drive.
I believe the SB 2 has 2 USB 3.1 ports so make sure you get a 3.1 USB and not a regular 3.0 USB as that will make a world of difference on its own. Also are you sure your camera cards are not the bottleneck? Probably a dumb questions but had to ask.
Crazy idea but has fixed a copy of other laptop issues over the years.
Unplug the Charger
Run your Surface Book until the battery drains and powers down
Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds to any discharge out
Plug Charger in and see if that fixed it
I think you pose a difficult question. Simple of a tech forum as most here would say yes indeed but difficult for some in that it may not be worth the $1200 - $1500 depending on usage.
For me I was using my SP6 8-10 hours a day with some medium weight applications so I couldn't imagine doing...
I own a Surface Book 2 that I just picked up off of eBay and a SP 6 and can't figure out why the feature updates on the Surface Pro are showing Windows 10 version 1809 but on the Book 2 it's on 1803 and I did a bunch of downloads earlier this afternoon. Shouldn't my Book 2 also be on 1809?
I went and purchased the Microsoft keyboard and have used it for the past couple of weeks along with the Max case and it worked pretty well. I got pretty good using the touch keyboard when sitting on the couch unless I have something long to type. But last night I decided to get the Brydge back...
Well I can't get it to work as it's been quite a while. Here is what I'm putting. Pease tell me what I'm missing. I'm just trying to get it to do 1 folder then I'll know I'm on the way to success.
