    surface book to 4k monitor

    Check your settings on your TV for something called Just Scan and set it to that. It's probably in the aspect ratio settings.

    Desperately seeking base-to-screen cable

    My solution was to get a USB C external battery with at least 30 watts of output along with a usb c to surface fin charging cable. It works great for just the tablet. It will keep it charged for a day in battery saver mode. The cable is 6 feet which gives me enough maneuvering room.

    my base died on my surface book 2 15inch. is there a way to manually detach?

    I tired that manual release and just couldn't get it to work. The vents are totally different on the surfacebook 2 than on the original. I couldn't find the manual release. In other news I did get a replacement unit which means I have another year of microsoft warranty. :cool:

    my base died on my surface book 2 15inch. is there a way to manually detach?

    Unfortunately the battery completely is dead and won’t charge through the base. I remembered last night that I got the square trade insurance when I bought it two years ago. I’m sending it in.

    my base died on my surface book 2 15inch. is there a way to manually detach?

    Okay, so i got the base of my surface book 2 wet with delive seltzer and it died. Imports don’t register, the touchpad doesn’t work. The screen portion still works but I can’t detach it since it doesn’t recognize that the base is still attached. T i can’t use the detach button because the...

    "0% and not charging"

    Oh cool! I'm glad you brought this to my attention. Apparently, it's a bug for me. If your win 10 machine is set to high battery performance the slider disappears from your battery settings tab. I'm so glad that I was able to bring it back!

    "0% and not charging"

    Well, battery one is in the keyboard section and battery two is in the display section. Look in both charging ports to make sure that the magnets inside haven't picked up a small metal filing or other debris. I had a similar problem and cleaning out the ports worked for me. I would also turn...

    Surface pen (latest) connection range?

    Oh! I found it. I'm updating this thread. My surface didn't connect to the pen when it had just been laying in a drawer. My best guess for this is that the surface pen must have a rest mode where it completely turns off to conserve battery when it's inactive and must wake up when it's picked...

    Surface pen (latest) connection range?

    Wow, I forgot that the older pen has so much initial activation force! I miss my previous pen but no enough to spend 100 bucks.

    Surface pen (latest) connection range?

    Bummer! I think it's I left it in Costa Rica then. Fortunately, I have my old pen still but I'll need to get batteries.

    Surface pen (latest) connection range?

    I lost my pen and I'm not sure if it's in the house or I left it in the hotel on vacation. I didn't have device location enabled so that's a wash. I'm wondering how far my SB2 needs to be before it will connect to the pen. I plan on doing a sweep of work, home and car to see if it's in any of...

    System Thread Exception Not Handled blue screen, anybody else getting this a lot?

    Me either. My internet has been out for the last day and a half so I can't even check to see if 1809 is available for me. Let me know if it fixes this problem for you.

    System Thread Exception Not Handled blue screen, anybody else getting this a lot?

    Forgot to mention that it's the 15 inch surface book 2.

    System Thread Exception Not Handled blue screen, anybody else getting this a lot?

    Over the last couple of weeks I've been getting this blue screen regularly. Probably once a day. Googling it the most common cause is a graphics driver problem. There have been two Nvidia graphics driver updates that I've installed but the issue has not resolved. Is anybody else getting this...

    Is this amount of battery wear a lot for just 12 cycles?

    Mine fails that too diagnostic too. Ug, perhaps I should take it to the MS store. I don't know why I'm complaining, the Seattle store has always been a good experience for me. EDIT: noticed a bit of discoloration, presumably oxidation on one of the pin on the charging cable. Scraped it and it...

    Argh Got a small ding on my SB2 Tablet side

    That's a really good look. I want to do just the back and the bottom for mine but I hadn't found a skin that I like until seeing yours.

    Does the SB2 box say 2?

    No it does not. It just says Microsoft Surface Book on the upper left. I'm not 100 percent sure but there I remember there being a sticker either on the side or on the back that states it's actual specs. My box is currently stuffed in the back of a closet that I can't currently get to.

    Is this amount of battery wear a lot for just 12 cycles?

    Did the previous one this morning. Did another one now and it's giving very different numbers. I wouldn't sweat it. However SB2 is determining capacity isn't very accurate.

    Is this amount of battery wear a lot for just 12 cycles?

    A bit on battery one but your main battery is currently better than it's design capacity.
