    Power Cover

    Does anyone know if the upcoming Power Cover will work on the original Surface Pro in addition to the Surface Pro 2? I couldn't find the information online. Thanks for any help!

    Intel Releases Updated Generic Drivers for Intel HD4000 Graphics, Fixes Bugs

    When I first installed Windows 8.1, I really liked that the Start Menu was smaller than in the original Windows 8. I had four "wide"-sized icons stacked on top of each other. After installing these drivers (the latest version for 3rd generation Core & Intel 4000 graphics for Windows 8.1 64 bit)...

    Surface Pro slow after BitLocker

    Hello, My Surface got kind of slow after applying and then unapplying BitLocker. I turned the feature on several months ago and didn't notice much of a performance difference other than a bit of lag upon waking from hibernation. However, about a month ago I decided to install Ubuntu on a 10...

    Sorry, could you be a little more specific in your instructions? Which list am I supposed to be looking at? What am I supposed to hide? Thanks for your help!

    Can I lock down a driver?

    The latest Microsoft video driver for the Surface breaks compatibility with a bunch of programs that I need for work. Both the original driver shipped with the Surface and the new one directly from Intel work just fine, but the Microsoft one crashes my programs. Unfortunately, my Surface keeps...

    MS; it was actually an automatic Windows Update.

    Where to report problems with the Surface?

    Cool, thanks. I ended up pasting my question into the live chat. Hopefully there'll be an updated driver within a few weeks. The problem was amusing because I googled the error messages that I was getting and a lot of people were able to fix them by updating their Intel 4000 video driver. That...

    Dual Boot

    Inadorel, that's really interesting to me. I'd much rather run VMware than deal with the separate installation, especially since Ubuntu 13.04 doesn't support the Marvel Wifi card and the SP doesn't have an Ethernet port... Do you virtual machines run at a usable speed? I got really terrible...

    Dual Boot

    Because I bought the computer to be my productivity device, and much of the software in my field of research (computational molecular biology) is exclusive to or highly optimized for Linux (unfortunately).

    Dual Boot

    I ended up installing Ubuntu on a 10 gig partition on the SSD. So far it works OK except for hibernation (in Windows 8). When I'm booted into Windows 8 and sleep the Surface, everything works fine. But when I sleep it overnight and it goes into hibernation, it wakes up to the Linux booloader and...

    Where to report problems with the Surface?

    How can I contact Microsoft regarding support for the surface via email? I went to the Surface support page and all they have is phone and live chat. The latest video driver update broke almost all of the programs that I use for work (PyMol, Visual Molecular Dynamics, Xwin Server, AutoDock...

    Dual Boot

    I installed Ubuntu 13.04 on the Surface Pro and now I can't boot into it. Could anyone help me figure out why? Here are the steps I took: 1: Disabled Secureboot in the BIOS 2: Shrank the system partition on the SSD by 10 GB. 3: Burned a bootable 64 bit Ubuntu 13.04 ISO onto a flash...

    Sorry for my confusion, but huh? Did you accidentally reply to the wrong thread? I'm not seeing a connection between the OP and the reply :)

    Pen and Keyboard for Surface Pro Question

    Hi All, I'm using the Surface Pro with type cover and I have a few issues that I'd like to solve. 1: Is a way to manually calibrate the pen? As in, type in numbers that say "I want the writing point to be 3 mm to the right of where you feel the touch"? No matter how many times I calibrate...

    Civilization 5

    I tried that but it made the game launch in windowed mode and I couldn't get it to go full screen. I guess I have to wait for a patch.

    Cleaning My Surface

    Hello, I sat down outside on a concrete ledge and took out my Surface Pro to do some homework. I didn't realize that by touching the ledge as I sat down, I got some while chalky substance on my palm and fingers. I then used that hand to touch my Surface, and afterward realized that I had...

    Surface reads SD card as "Read Only"

    Thanks to both of you. I reformatted the card and, while it didn't remove the "read only" flag, I'm now able to mount it and use it like a folder without issues which is good enough for me. Thanks for your advice!

    Surface reads SD card as "Read Only"

    I'm using a Sandisk 64 GB SD card on my surface for music and games. After finding out that libraries don't support the SD card its native state, I used the Disk Management plugin to unmap it from its drive letter and mount it in C:\SD Card. I then created a "Games" folder and started to install...
