    Windows 10 upgrade on a SP2 thread

    Thank you guys for the replies. I'll do what you suggest. Talking about the activation, how does it work? Once W10 is installed, will it automatically be registered so I can rollback to W8 and 6 months later install W10 again for free using the same registration? Cheers!

    Windows 10 upgrade on a SP2 thread

    Hi there! I'm still running on W8.1. The free update period is about to expire, so I was wondering, should I update to W10? How is everything going for the ones who did update? I haven't updated yet because of all the issues you reported on this forum, but they occured during the first months of...

    Type cover isn't working properly

    I'm coming from the other thread. I had no trackpad issues when my Type2 decided to stop working properly, but some months ago I had experienced some random trackpad issues (mouse going crazy), which could be related to my connectivity issues. For what I see on your video, I also think you're...

    Okay guys, I got some news. Friday 5:30 pm I handed my Type Cover to UPS. Friday evening it was shipped to the nearest airport (Barcelona). Saturday afternoon it arrived at Germany (where Microsoft technical service is). Monday morning the package was delivered to Microsoft. Tuesday morning I...

    Type Cover issues after 1.5 years

    GoodBytes, I don't have the Microsoft Complete warranty. I'm using the standard warranty. As Zkyevolved said, the thing is that in Spain by law all devices have a 2 year warranty. Cheers

    Type Cover issues after 1.5 years

    Thanks for your help! Just contacted Microsoft and both my Surface and Type Cover are still under warranty (2 year warranty), so I'll ship it back to have it fixed or to get a replacement. Now what worries me is why this hardware issue happened. As you said, it really looks like the wiring...

    Type Cover issues after 1.5 years

    Okay, I'm now in the UEFI Setup Screen. What you meant is that I just go to that screen and check if the type cover works properly at that moment, right? If that is what you meant, then the answer is no, it is not working properly. The problem's still the same, so now I can be sure it's a...

    Type Cover issues after 1.5 years

    Here you are a video of my problem. https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=6D2997E7A6E7AB25!13271&authkey=!AMyQtr4V3oHjtxw&ithint=video%2cmp4 I think a software issue can be ruled out, cant it?

    Type Cover issues after 1.5 years

    Thanks for the reply. Where exactly is the sensor? In my case, it is quickly getting worse. Now I cannot even make it work when leaving the Surface on a desk. The Type Cover will only reconnect when reaching a very specific angle. Any other angle than this one will prevent it from working. I...

    Type Cover issues after 1.5 years

    Hi! I’ve had my SP2 for one and a half years. Until now, every time I lifted the Surface from the table, the type cover automatically disabled so that you can fold it back and grab it comfortably without having to take care not to press any key. However, today I noticed that the type cover now...

    Sleep mode => shut down

    I bought my SP2 more than one year ago and during the firsts weeks I had this very issue quite often. With an update it was almost fixed, but sometimes I'm still having it. I think for the last weeks I'm experiencing it more frequently...

    Stuck at Getting Devices Ready after Firmware installation

    Hey, thanks Jefhart! I did a hard reset just as stated on the website you posted and then I started the SP2 again. The "Getting devices ready" screen appeared for just 3 seconds and then Windows started perfectly. How could I know if all the updates have been successfully installed? Should I do...

    Stuck at Getting Devices Ready after Firmware installation

    Hi! I hadn't installed any update on my SP2 since February, but today I decided to install the most recent firmware update it showed (11th March update). It rebooted, installed everything and then it got stuck at the black screen with the white Surface logo saying Getting Devices Ready (or...

    Have they fixed the bug where the device crashes when booting from sleep?

    I still have some crashes. At the beginning, I had crashes twice or three times a day. Now I have them twice a week.

    Is loose hinge normal?

    Hi! Did it fix your problem? I think my hinge is quite loose as well. I'd try to tighten the screws, but I don't have any Torx screwdriver, so before buying one I'd like to make sure it will solve the issue.. Bye!
