    I have had the Pro 3 for a while now and the display has suddenly died. Has anyone experience this before? Do you think Microsoft will fix it or give me some kind of credit towards an upgrade?

    Will Pen work on a broken Touch screen?

    I cracked my surface pro 3, now the touch part of the screen is kinda hit or miss. Do you think the surface pen would work with it? Like on the Note 5, the screen knows where the pen is before the pen even touches it....same for the surface pro 3?

    Has anyone else experienced this issue running Win 10 Pro? Contact Support was not helpful, every method tried in Settings would not control the brightness. Fn + Del or Backspace does not work either. Any advice would be much appreciated by my eyeballs!
