am so glad to find that I was not crazy. After installing the latest Windows 10 technical preview on my trusty and much loved Surface Pro 3 I immediately ran into issues. The screen would not respond, the video would flash occasionally and reboot on it’s own. Not being a quitter I restored Windows 8.1 three times after finding the same sad results each time I tried again to get Windows 10 on my Surface.
I was surprised at this sad result because I have been running Windows 10 on my HP desktop and Acer Aspire S7 laptop with almost no issues at all.
Now day’s later I find that I am not alone. If you have a Surface Pro 3 I would recommend that if you are interested in downloading the Windows 10 technical build holding off until the upcoming new build scheduled for mid-February is available.
Microsoft truly wants Windows 10 to work for Insiders, particularly those running the company’s own hardware, like the Surface Pro 3. In December, despite any new builds releasing, we saw Microsoft deliver fixes for the November release, further showing that the company is intent on fixing glaring issues to ensure Windows 10 can be used for testing and feedback, despite it clearly still showing beta software problems.
Last night, Microsoft released a fixed version of the Intel graphics driver for Surface Pro users. This version reports to specifically addresses the video playback issues experienced by many, including me but as I suggested earlier I will just wait for the new build in a couple of weeks and I would suggest anyone with a Surface Pro 3 do the same.
To get the driver, dig into Windows Update to obtain it. Windows Update has been moved in Windows 10 Build 9926.
