System Firmware Update?

WTH? MS still can't push out a proper update without creating so many NEW issues?

Luckily I haven't used my SP3 for couple of weeks now so no updates installed for me. I guess I'll wait for the fix for the update. Crazy!

Well, rolling back the pen driver didn't seem to work. Over the weekend I had an issue with my wifi where it stopped working so I turned it off and then when I went to turn it back on, it wouldn't do so. Went it to settings and wouldn't turn on there either. Did a few resarts and even a system shutdown and I can't remember what did it but it came back on its own. Could this be related? The crashes started happening the next day (sunday). I'm very frustrated at this. I love my SP3 but this is giving me a bitter taste.

Well I think the Surface Pen Settings rollback really did work because my SP3 has been running like a charm all afternoon. Thanks for the tip!

I had the same problem with BSOD and restarts after the last update.
But rolling back the Surface Pen Settings driver seems to fix it.
No restarts or BSOD after that :D

Well, I, too, rolled back the Surface Pen Settings driver, and, so far, my SPR03 has been much more stable. I believe that I have had one BSOD, and it appears to be coming out of sleep mode more reliably. Knock on wood.

Yeps, I did this too and the SP3 seems to be better for it - as of now!

Just got 2 BSOD today and the type cover stopped working after the first one!:mad:

Right now yet another "Cumulative Win10 update" is downloading. Would be nice if MS would send a fix to fix the fix.o_O

The site has been updated with the info. See here: Microsoft Surface Pro 3 update history | Surface firmware updates

But according to some posts on Reddit, this update is causing problems. Personally, I have not experienced any and the crashing display driver problem has also stopped. I think - not sure yet - that my SP3 is also running a bit cooler than before. Not tested battery life yet.

Aside: A similar firmware update is available for the S3. I updated that too. Again, no problems though some on Reddit are saying that they are also facing issues. One thing though, I can't seem to get the Surface App to work. It is not recognizing the new Pen that I paired with it. I have tried reinstalling the app, pairing and unpairing and repairing the Pen with no luck. So, I can't yet map the buttons on the Pen to my chosen app(s). But I believe with this update we are supposed to be able to do that. This applies to both the SP3 and the S3 to the best of my knowledge.
I had some problems with my sp3 after update, blank screen, I have to hard reset it.
