    Surface Pro 4 Lot Numbers

    Here is it. As you can see, I photographed it from the back, as the original label mostly peeled off with the added Amazon label. But it clearly states "LOT NO.1428". If it isn't clear to you via this photo, it is perfectly clear to me--there is no doubt about what it states. Then, of course...

    Surface Pro 4 Lot Numbers

    Lot 1428! Perhaps a different angle on this lot number business? I bought my new SP3 from Amazon in August of 2015. It arrived with a label on the lower left side corner that has a bar code and the text "Microsoft Surface Pro 3 (128GB, Intel Core I5) New". This label covers the original...

    Solved Autorotate work for anyone on SP3 Windows 10?

    It appears that the problem is fixed! My thanks to new member arcanux. He worked with me via a private conversation over the last several days. I will summarize how it was made to work, in case anyone else has the same problem. The problem had to do with changing group policy with gpedit.msc...

    Solved Autorotate work for anyone on SP3 Windows 10?

    Thanks. That is what I needed. When I did a cold reboot that same driver, and only that one, was installed automatically. But it still isn't working. It's probably some other registry entry, so I'll do some more looking. The word "Collection" in the name must say all we need to know. No other...

    Solved Autorotate work for anyone on SP3 Windows 10?

    theveterans: Please, if you can, provide the exact driver names and levels, all of them if more than one. Telling me you are using Microsoft drivers is not enough. Which ones? Thanks, DaveD

    Solved Autorotate work for anyone on SP3 Windows 10?

    I believe I am on my way to fixing this. I did some searching through the registry this morning and found Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AutoRotation. SensorPresent was set to zero. I turned it on, rebooted using sharp's two-finger suggestion (probably a...

    Solved Microsoft yanks latest Windows 10 release - November update (version 1511)

    Just in time I pulled down the 1511 version and installed it yesterday. I waited a couple of weeks for the 1511 update to show up on its own, but it never happened; hence the manual install. I had a number of problems with the W10 10240 problem that I was looking forward to 1511 fixing. Maybe if...

    Solved Autorotate work for anyone on SP3 Windows 10?

    sharp: No. None of that. It doesn't exist. No accelerometer driver, no autorotate, no autorotate lock. compnovo: A reset is something I really don't want to do, as my SP3 is extensively customized with many applications (non MS) installed. As I understand it a reset gives me at best an option...

    Solved Autorotate work for anyone on SP3 Windows 10?

    Why haven't I exchanged it already? A one-hundred mile drive in heavy traffic on I-95 to the DC area and the nearest Microsoft store, with no certain outcome? Spend gazillions of hours with MS online and on the phone, reading and listening to bromides, and then send it in to MS, wait, and hope...

    Solved Autorotate work for anyone on SP3 Windows 10?

    That setting does not exist on my SP3. Nor does the auto-rotate button in the Action Center. The support is simply not there! I've been all through this stuff many times, with many different settings, in both PC mode and Tablet mode. I believe the answer is this ain't going to work until I get...

    Solved Autorotate work for anyone on SP3 Windows 10?

    I'll ask the question another way: Has anyone had problems with Autorotate on an SP3 under Windows 10? If so, has anyone got it to work? If so, how? Background: I bought my SP3 new on July 21, 2015. I mention this because it may be related to a specific hardware level that MS shipped at the...

    Solved Autorotate work for anyone on SP3 Windows 10?

    I've seen lots of forum traffic about display auto rotation on W8 but haven't in the last few months seen anyone definitively state that it functions on Windows 10. I'm now at the latest level, version 1511 build 10586.11, and was hoping that it might magically start working, but nothing. There...

    I need a different numeric keyboard.

    Try the Windows Ease of Access On-Screen Keyboard. It has much more functionality than the default version. It is my soft keyboard of choice. Start > All Apps > Windows Ease of Access > On-Screen Keyboard (right click and put it on your Task Bar for quick select). DaveD

    Mapped drives not showing up on Explorer - Disconnecting

    leeshor, good suggestion. I could batch the operation. However, yesterday I did a logoff/logon to make some (unrelated) system changes take effect and upon logon the drives were back in explorer. So this may also fix the problem. Since when they disappear they all disappear and it doesn't happen...

    Mapped drives not showing up on Explorer - Disconnecting

    I sought help on this problem on another forum and had no success. I should have started here! Since at least Windows XP through Windows 8.1, using Windows Explorer you are able to open the Network View, expand a displayed computer, right click on a drive or folder that has been set up as...

    Mount micro SD

    You don't need to search for it. Press the Update Driver button, let the Update Driver dialog box search for it automatically, and it should find it, either on your system on online. It is the Microsoft generic USB mass storage driver, at the level cited. DaveD

    Mount micro SD

    You may need to replace your USB Mass Storage Device driver (Device Manager > Universal Serial Bus controllers > USB Mass Storage Device). The Realtek driver may be causing the problem. Replace it with the generic Microsoft driver, 10.0.10240.16384. This driver should be available on your...

    Microsoft - Pointing Drawing - Update: Microsoft Hardware Bluetooth Device 9/23/2015

    I just installed it. It is: Device Manager > Human Interface Devices > Microsoft Hardware Bluetooth Device. Driver Version 1.8.132.0. Old driver was 9.5.172.0, 12/12/2013. I cannot detect any operational differences with either MS Sculpt Comfort Mouse or Surface Pen, my two BT devices. Maybe...
