    Surface 3 High CPU usage

    I do have a SD card with documents, pictures and music. I also have all updates. So you are saying to roll back sound drivers and then install current ones? I have other Windows computers and none run so high. I don't think it ever goes below 30% and always is warm. I have a Surface Book and...

    Just picked up the SB i7 256GB 8GB this past weekend and enjoying it for work and personal use. With the clipboard I am getting between 3.5 hours for web browser and Office 2016. In clipboard I might catch a few videos about 3 minutes each.

    Have just a little patience left for a fix for the speaker pop and display driver error!!!!

    I got the SB on Saturday and had the popping speaker when in the browser. Did all the updates and seems to have fixed it for me. Though I did go to the MS Store to actually fix my SP4 that was having issues, they gave me a replacement after they couldn't get it to work. So my wife took the SP4...

    Yes I see both in device manager, hopefully I don't have to restore the complete Surface Book to get this to work.
