    Recommend me a monitor with no scaling issues

    Went to a large chain store that had a several different brands of ultra wide screens on display. Tested my SP3 with Samsung and HP 3440x1440 screens and they exhibeted the same scaling issue as on my Dell U3415W monitor. I then tested the a HP 3440x1440 unit with HP Spectrex360 notebook and...

    Recommend me a monitor with no scaling issues

    So I have an option to return the U3415W monitor with ~ $200 restock fee. (I purchased it from a store not Dell. ) This way the problem goes away. About 2 hours on the phone with MS and another 1 hour with Dell really did not resolve anything. OTOH I could keep it. When I set it as the Main...

    Microsoft support are telling me my U3415W is not compatible and may need a firmware update to be so! Can someone see if their SP3 has a driver in device manager> system device called "Surface Display Telemetry". device manager> system >Surface Display Telemetry Supposedly it should be there...

    Recommend me a monitor with no scaling issues

    So I set SP3 to use the Microsoft Basic display adapter. Then used rapr to remove all Dell Monitor and Intel Graphics drivers from my system. No trace of them left. Then used Device Managers update driver facility to download and reload the Microsoft provided Intel HD Graphics drivers for SP3...

    Recommend me a monitor with no scaling issues

    I think your question was directed at me as I am having the problems ;-) Dell at full 3440x1440 and SP3 at 2160 x 1440, connected with the Mini DP cable that came with the Monitor. 100% and 150% both (Recommended) Same scaling problem I see when connecting it to either the Surface Dock or...

    I guess I need to find someone who has this monitor with the SP3. Your SP4 probably has been updated hardware wise to cope better with scaling being a year newer.

    Recommend me a monitor with no scaling issues

    Does the Word doc remain crisp and clear if you drag it from one display to the other? ATM I only get crisp and clear on the designated main display for MS Office and chrome. I tried your 100% and 200% resolutions and just as bad. Wonder if there is something graphics related on my Win10...

    Recommend me a monitor with no scaling issues

    That's weird. Do you use a dock or simply plug the second monitor into the Display port on your SP4? Been fiddling trying to get it to work. Logging in/out of windows 10 so many times I even discovered a new shortcut combo. Windows X U I. Have found that whichever panel I set as "Make this...

    Recommend me a monitor with no scaling issues

    Well I took your advice as bought the Dell U3415-W. $1350 here in Australia! Now I have gone and set it up and am still seeing the scaling problems. Fark... I wonder if it is a Dell thing as the LG I tested was fine. With the SP3 at U3415W both at their max resolution the SP scales to 150%...

    Recommend me a monitor with no scaling issues

    I cant recall as I no longer have the ultra wide screen in front of me. But I just did some mental scaling of the Excel windows in the screen shot on display and it would seem I must have had the external monitor at 100%. Otherwise it could not have so easily fit the three windows laterally...

    Recommend me a monitor with no scaling issues

    I tested it in a shop with the 34" LG 34UC87C IPS LED Monitor, 3440x1440 and it seemed to work well with no obvious scaling issues. Tried with and without the docking station. No need to log in or out as I normally do and no need for the SP3 to run at lower than max res. I like the ultra...

    Recommend me a monitor with no scaling issues

    Interesting points. I was looking at Ultra Wide 34" displays at 3,440 x 1,440. Was thinking they look big and sharp. But they are not 4K which I now read needs to be > 3840x2160. Good points about the scaling. So a big screen at 4k scaled to 150% same as SP3 has a good chance of looking...

    Recommend me a monitor with no scaling issues

    I am looking to switch out 2 x Dell U2414H 1920 x 1080 connected to the surface dock for single larger higher resolution monitor. Current arrangement works - but continuously having to log in/out to get the external monitors to scale to 100% when docking and putting up with scaling and slight...

    Help with external display U2414H Slow Motion?

    Odd. I have two Dell U2414H connected to my dock, daisy chained. Refresh is fine left at 59 hertz . If you have not already done so. In each monitors settings panel set "display port 1.2 = enable" on the the first U2414H and Disable on the second U2414H for the pass through to work. The...

    Ethernet Dropping

    Excellent glad to hear rebooting the dock worked & is a good one to have filed away.. For me it was easy to overlook that the dock power keeps Ethernet adapter up and running too and does more than simply power the Surface Pro.

    Ethernet Dropping

    Old thread I now, but my recent experience may be of use to others. My Ethernet by way of the docking station > router has been continually dropping out over the past few day. Falling back to WiFi. I am on Windows 10. I tried various fixes; ReDock SP3, Different LAN cable, reboot SP3...

    Solved How to search within a single forum?

    I am daft. YES it is. Until now I had never even noticed the "staring in my face" SEARCH window up top in the RH side of the main Surface Forums Banner. Had always been looking for a "search this forum" below all the ads within each forum itself ala vBulletin. Thanks.

    It is common and convenient in other BBS software to be able to search threads withing a sub forum only. In Surfaceforums I only see the option atop "Search Forums" then I have to drill down and slect the forum of interest then compose my search. Am I missing something here, or is there no...
