Surface hangs at Surface splash screen


New Member
My surface has suddenly stopped booting and gets stuck at the Surface splash screen. I know how to do a reset of the software configuration but cant get my system to get past the Surface splash screen

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hold the Windows and power button at same time until screen goes black; then wait a few seconds and restart it via the power button. What updates have you installed?

I tried the steps above and it still doesnt make it past the Surface splash screen. I have auto update enabled for Windows Update and it installed all of todays patches (4 I think). By the way, all of this is with the unit plugged in so it shouldnt be a low battery condition
