    Was there a Firmware on 12/21?

    Still on original SB, and yesterday in the middle of crunching numbers for a early meeting, my SB decided it did not like the external monitor, when connected to the DOCK. I could get it working via a power cord and connecting the DP cord directly to the SB. This morning I was checking the...

    what would you do?

    Like your advise. I have had my SB for a month or so now. It is unstable. I think it is software, but I read people are able to get them exchanged. I did invest in Stikerboy and would need to remove it, but With the Windows 10 patch this week, the unit crashes every time it goes to sleep...

    Anyone try Just the tablet attached to the DOCK?

    This morning I got to work and thought, why struggle detaching the screen, to invert to rotate, then attach to the Doc so that I could have it in; Clipboard, with external Monitor. This way I can take hand written notes in OneNote and use the monitor. Instead I thought, when you detach the...

    Is this a Windows thing or a Surface Dock thing

    I have a Surface Book i7/512 with the Surface dock. It is random, if the monitor is recognized, or not. Most time if I power off, and power on, the external monitor is known. Most times when I reboot, the Surface Book Screen is know, and some oddly small monitor is seen in Display Settings, but...
