    Surface Headphones

    Can't see any discussion about the Surface Headphones on here. I've just ordered some as a birthday present to myself... quite excited. My only concern is being a glasses wearer; I've never had over-ear headphones before, usually preferring on-ear; hopefully they'll be alright. Anyone else got...

    Strange audio problem! Not recognised but can force it...

    Hi this has happened a couple of times now... Basically power on, open Groove and try to play a track - What happens is it quickly skips around 20-30 tracks and eventually says it cannot play due to no audio device found. I tried another source (YouTube) and the track would play, but there was...

    Chrome running very poorly on my Surface... who's to blame?

    Hi so if I'm scrolling Chrome with touch, it hesitates and jolts constantly... horrible experience. If I use the touchpad it'll occasionally stop completely, and will not carry on scrolling until I move it via touch then resume. When I dock the Surface, and use my mouse and external monitor...

    Constant 'Low Disk Space' error...

    Hello, this is driving my mother mad! Every day, multiple times, a pop up appears: Low Disk Space You are running out of disk space on Local Disk (D:). Click here to see if you can free any space on this disk. I noticed she had less than 10% space left... so deleted stuff until it was above...

    SwiftKey?

    Hi guys. I gave my old (original) Surface Pro to my mum. She loves using SwiftKey on her iPhone, and I've seen people using it on Surface too... but alas, when I checked it doesn't seem to be built into Windows (which is probably should be) Any ideas how I get it on there?

    Over a year in... any fixes for start up connectivity?

    I'm still loving my Surface despite it's problems :) and I'm glad to see the Alcantara is holding up great even with daily use (in fact, it's feeling better than ever these days) So, the problem: Every time the Surface boots, Wi-Fi never works. I have disconnect/reconnect for it to start...

    Some new Surface related stuff?

    Not sure if anyone saw the cryptic retweet from Tom Warren the other day with 3 Surface related code names... PZ ZaP Vail Any ideas? :) guessing it might be stuff revealed at the Surface event at the end of the month, though apparently they're 'not very exciting' lol... so maybe just...

    Noisy processor!

    Thought I'd start a new thread for problems with machine No.2 :confused: It still has the same issues as my previous one, i.e. light bleed, slow Wi-Fi and lagging Bluetooth... but the Bluetooth is slightly better so I just thought sod it I'll keep it. However! I've now noticed, the processor is...

    First time docking, problems with Bluetooth mouse!

    So I docked my new Surface Pro tonight to the exact same setup I had on my original one. Mouse is jerky every now and then, very annoying! Once it stopped completely for about 15 seconds. I've tried both 2.4GHz & 5GHz networks which are both the same. I had this on my original but changing...

    Watched the video and about to read it too, they're loving it! :D Microsoft Surface Laptop review: worth the wait

    Who's getting one?

    Finally it's time for me to upgrade from my original Surface Pro, and this device seems just the ticket :) Shame the UK only gets the one colour, and will have to wait a little longer for release... also the price is pretty horrendous, so I suppose I'll be sticking with the i5/4Gb/128 setup...

    Any changes you'd like to see?

    The Studio is an exciting product for sure... but I won't be picking one up as the product's simply not for me. There is something that could have made it a must buy though, and that would be if it were 'just' a monitor. What I mean is instead of having the computer below the screen, you could...

    The Band. It is dead!

    :( Gave up the ghost yesterday, won't turn on any more. Have tried everything listed on Microsoft's help webpage including the hard reset etc. I've had it plugged into a computer all day and twice 'unrecognised USB device' has popped up! But only for a second or two. Spoke to Microsoft, it's...

    Power button lacking in responsiveness!

    My little Surface Pro is still doing well 2.5 years after I first got it :) but... the power button hardly ever works first time now. Takes a few presses before anything happens! Not a big problem at the moment, but has anyone else had this and seen it get worse over time?

    OneDrive - The restrictions...

    I'm sure most of you have heard about this by now... Microsoft drops unlimited OneDrive storage after people use it for unlimited storage Personally I think it's disgusting, and possible the most un-customer friendly thing they've ever done... can you tell, I'm really annoyed! 30Gb free was...

    UK - You can trade in Band 1 for Band 2...

    Trade up your Microsoft Band for the NEW Band 2 and receive up to £70. Above the sizing... Buy Microsoft Band 2: New Fitness Band - Microsoft Store United Kingdom Online Store Tempted! Really tempted... but not even had the original Band for a year yet, so I am finding it hard to justify...

    How to set a Wi-Fi connection as default?

    This is probably really obvious, but I couldn't find it in the Network Centre in Control Panel. Ever since upgrading to Windows 10, my Surface defaults to my 2.4GHz network... this has issues so I want the 5GHz network to be the default. I know I could just 'forget' the 2.4GHz, but as the range...

    Best cheap laptop/tablet?

    My girlfriend's work place has finally recognised that iPad's are useless for real work :D and they've given her a (very small) budget to get some replacement tablets/laptops running Windows. She only has about £150-175 to spend on each one. Any suggestions? I was thinking perhaps the HP Stream...

    Release outside the US?

    Any information on this? On the UK website the Surface Book doesn't even exist :confused: I remember the Surface models were at least 'coming soon' for ages with lots of information about them. Would love to pop into a Currys/John Lewis for a look at some point!

    Any interesting readings from the heart rate monitor?

    Just thought I'd kick this off with my activities from last weekend... On Friday I went to Alton Towers (for you US folk, it's the biggest/fastest theme park in the UK) and my heart rate peaked on Oblivion; as I thought it would! My heart rate raised up to about 80bpm (I usually rest around...
