    Screen Rotation Issues

    Since upgrading to Windows 10 on my Surface Pro 3 I am experiencing a problem with my color calibration for the screen. I use a Datacolor Spyder 3 to create a ICC profile that corrects (calibrates) the colors on the Surface screen. When I rotate the Surface (going from Portrait to landscape) in...

    Screen freezing

    For the past week (or so) my surface has been freezing up every once and a while. I don't see any pattern... it just stops responding and forces me to hold down the power button to shut down. It happens about twice a day and is a new behavior. Any thoughts?

    Blue Screen Errors?

    When I pushed the power button on my Surface Pro 3 earlier today it took a very long time to turn on. I walked away from it and when I looked up a few minutes later it had a "blue screen" message on the screen. Unfortunately the screen timed out just as I approached the computer and I did not...

    Persistent Task Bar?

    The taskbar on my desktop all of a sudden stays visible across the bottom of the screen when a program opens. I think this happened after the August firmware update. Any thoughts on how to make it disappear like before?
