    Surface Book 2 with dGPU on Windows 10 1903 constant black screen

    After upgrading to 1903, it constantly blacks out for 1-2 seconds, it's virtually unable to use the machine. I googled around, they said MS has no solution, and possible workaround in the wild said just scan dGPU new drivers, I tried, no change. Maybe I have disable the dGPU after all???
