    Yellow streak reduction???

    My Surface Pro 1 had a faint vertical yellow streak on the left side of the screen. Yes the same one that has been alluded to many times on this forum and elseware. It did not bother me enough to return the unit, and so I ignored it. One of the members, I believe it was Mitchellvii, had...

    Template for the Modern Tablet?

    Was randomly watching an 1993 episode of Star Trek-The Next Generation- Series 6 Episode 22 "Suspicions" on BBC America. The hand held data devices looked awfully familiar. The form factor and size was amazingly similar to a very popular tablet of today.;);) But I thought when it was introduced...

    Deja Vu! all over again?

    Why do I feel like I have been here before??? I keep getting these thoughts in my mind: The largest Software & Programming company in the world? A relatively small piece of software designed to fix or update an original computer program code? The day after Monday? :starstruck:

    It's that time of the month again

    Of course. It is Microsoft Patch Tuesday. On manual download? Then, I would suggest the following: Lock and load your keyboard. Fuel up at your charge station. Check system file integrity (at the administrator command prompt: Type sfc /scannow) Check for available update downloads Allow...
