    Clean install success

    So I just tried installing via usb the latest 8.1 update 1 iso. Strangely was a bit iffy first time, so just wiped it out and tried again. All drivers sorted out via windows update and it feels like my sp2 is behaving better then ever. Certainly i have had to put up with strange power on and off...

    onedrive behaving oddly

    Hi all, Since the last patch Tuesday, I've noticed that the one drive icon in the task bar generally tells me I'm not connected to the internet when I am. A full shutdown and reboot usually fixes it, but if I wake the sp2 from sleep I get the message again. Anyone else seeing this? Cheers...

    Tricky getting my SP2 to turn on sometimes

    The title kind of says it all. Sometimes the machine switches on just fine. Other times there's a delay and when I touch the screen to type my pin it goes off again. From time to time I get nothing and have to hold down the volume key with the power button for ages to get it to come to life. I'm...

    usb 3 hub with gigabit ethernet

    Hi all, have seen a few of these on eBay and amazon for about £20. Wondering if they live up to their promise. Has anyone got any recommendations for something to get some more juice out of the left hand side of my SP2? :-)

    Webcam light flashing on and off during skype call

    Hi all, New to my surface. Only had it a few weeks. Bought it a few days before the new processor came out so was a bit pissed off about that for a while, but have realised the 4200 is the fastest machine I own so it feels just fine to me  Have noticed a few times when making a Skype call...
