    Solved Surface 3 Pen problems

    Boy, I was hoping that pulling out the nib would work for me, but it doesn't. Any other thoughts out there? I've been using Windows 10 for the past year without any pen issues, but it just won't work. The purple bluetooth button works just fine, but the pen will not do anything. I've done...

    Wireless adapter not working and no recovery environment

    Well, I have success with wifi after uninstalling the Cisco VPN, but not I can't log on due to "The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed". I had this once before on the tech preview, and I have no idea what I did to fix it... EDIT: I logged onto my local...

    Wireless adapter not working and no recovery environment

    Yep, I'm in the process of doing the same thing. The VPN uninstalled fine back in Windows 8.1, and I am at 92% for my re-install of 10. I'll report back.

    Wireless adapter not working and no recovery environment

    Interesting. I have no antivirus installed, but I do have a Cisco VPN client installed. I do not generally use it, and I certainly haven't used it recently. I'm not sure why that application being installed would affect anything, but I'll try to remove it when I get a chance and see what...

    Post Your SP3 WiFi/Internet Issues Here

    I noted this in one of the newer threads, but my wifi options disappeared after doing the in-place upgrade from 8.1 to today's Windows 10 release. The adapter shows up in device manager, but nowhere do I have an option to actually utilize it. So I currently have no connectivity on my SP3. I'm...

    Wireless adapter not working and no recovery environment

    I just came to post the same problem. My adapter is listed in device manager, but wifi doesn't even appear as an option anywhere. It was working in the tech preview. I did an upgrade to the factory 8.1 install.

    Windows 10 Preview on Surface Pro 3

    It seems as if the update somehow removes my domain account. I was able to get logged in with my local admin account. Going into the computer properties showed me on the domain. I re-joined the domain, the SP3 rebooted, and I am now able to log in. It went through the initial automated setup...

    Windows 10 Preview on Surface Pro 3

    If by "verified", you mean having a MS account linked to my domain account, then yes. I cannot refresh my Windows 10 install, because I cannot log in. I do have the option to do a roll back from the bootloader (I can choose my 8.1 or tech preview to boot, or do a roll back). That's what I did...

    Windows 10 Preview on Surface Pro 3

    I've got an incredibly odd issue going on with Windows 10. I did a fresh install with dual boot back when the tech preview was initially released, and all was well. Updates and preview builds downloaded and installed like normal. After this most recent preview release downloaded and...

    Windows 10 Preview on Surface Pro 3

    How did you guys go about installing the latest build? Are you able to do an upgrade and retain your current installs and settings, or did you start "clean"? EDIT: Nevermind, I see that we can update through the Windows Update Settings -> Preview Builds...

    Windows 10 Preview on Surface Pro 3

    I was talking to a CSR yesterday about my wi-fi issues in Windows 8.1, and I mentioned that I am now running the Win10TP. He had many good things to say about it, and he told me that when the release version is done, I should keep an eye out for the official update. Does this mean that the...

    Post Your SP3 WiFi/Internet Issues Here

    Update: After not hearing from MS for a couple weeks, their CSR called me yesterday. He told me they have had similar complaints about wi-fi not working in Modern apps but working in Desktop apps. He also told me that I should expect an update/fix on the 2nd Tuesday in November. Maybe other...

    Do Not BUY SP3. You will be sorry

    I know it's too late now, but I just took my SP3, which I ordered online, back to a B&M store, and they handed me a new one, no questions asked. I DO have Complete, so maybe that made a difference. I also called first before going since the closest store is an hour away from me.

    How to ID A Refurb?

    Its sorta, kinda there. I had it on my first one, but it was hardly noticeable. I'd say it's the same on this one. I see it if I'm looking for it, but it doesn't stand out either.

    How to ID A Refurb?

    I'll take a look and report back tomorrow morning. Until I get my case, I'm a bit paranoid and am not taking it out of the house since I shattered my last one...

    How to ID A Refurb?

    Well in that case, it looks like I got a brand new replacement. Good deal! I'll be curious to see how this compares to my last one. My broken one suffered from Wi-Fi sleep bugs and early on, fan noise, though it subsided after a while. So far everything seems good.

    How to ID A Refurb?

    I went into a Microsoft Store yesterday to do a Complete exchange. The store I want to was a mall kiosk, so they did not have a lot if inventory. I was in and out in 5 minutes with what APPEARS to be a brand new SP3. I thought Complete was supposed to exchange for a refurb unit, which I was...

    Secure Format SP3 For Return

    What I'm hoping is that if somehow I can disable touch input. Right now, the cursor jumps around and randomly registers clicks, making it impossible to really do anything. I hope that that problem goes away if I can rely only on mouse/keyboard input. I am going to try booting to a USB...

    Secure Format SP3 For Return

    I will be sending my SP3 in for warranty replacement. Is there a way I can securely erase the SP3 without booting into the OS? For a couple reasons, I cannot get into Windows and reliably navigate the OS; let's just say touch input no longer works, and the device is registering random clicks...
