    Surface Book Beta

    When we first got the Surface Book it felt like we were in the Alpha stage. So many problems disrupted even basic operation it was unbelievable. I was excited by the potential and loved the hardware but I was extremely nervous some of these more severe problems were not going to be fixed...

    Firmware Update 18 Nov

    I updated fine, but Windows Hellos is no BORKed as I also get stuck at the "turning on camera" prompt. Launching the camera app in windows caused an error, but then I reset windows a few times and it will now turn on at the desktop, still no Windows Hello. So, glad they are updating the Surface...

    Yes, they specifically called that out as a fix in the next build.

    Solved Pen button doesn't work at all

    I'm enjoying a more stable Surface Book as the various problems I've had appear to be slowly but surely resolving themselves.

    Finally got a BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH...and other problems

    I've also had one blue screen, when I detached the clipboard while it was installing programs. I agree, they have about two weeks to figure this out. I have 30 days to return mine and I REALLY REALLY want it to work out, because the screen and build quality are amazing. Just need the...

    Day 2 with SB - Uh Oh

    Have you tried using Firefox instead of Edge, for me it fixed several of the problems you listed.

    Microsoft Edge is part of the problem.

    Like many of you I was super excited to open my Surface Book up and play with my shiny new toy, only to discover that there were errors all over the place. Specifically, I had the intel display adapter crashing problem (every few minutes) and the display color shifting problem that others have...
