I have two broken Surface pro 3s which I would like to replace the screens myself as MS is charging whooping 600 dollars to replace.

I have read there are different version of the screen/digitizer for the surface pro 3, IE v1.1. How do I know what version I have before ordering? Do I have to remove the old broken one to find its version number. Or does it correspond to the serial number of the device?

Also if anyone have done this replacement themselves can you send me info where to buy the screen from ? I know ebay have lots but the prices are varying from 250 dollars to 80 dollars !! Since I will be doing this myself for the first time I appreciate responses.

Example:  200 dollar range:  https://www.ebay.com/p/microsoft-surface-pro-3-1631-v1-1-lcd-display-touch-screen-digitizer-assembly/537607404

Example 2:  only 80 bucks:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/LCD-Screen-Display-for-Microsoft-Surface-Pro-3-Win8-1-LTL120QL01-001-xhg04-/322600589249?hash=item4b1c7e57c1:g:jAkAAOSwBLlVUf4I

 Thanks

Tablet is Kindle HD fire 10. Both Alexa and dictation in general worked very well for many months . But a month ago it stopped working. I was unable to find any information that help me . The only thing I thought that might have changed about a month ago was that I installed AVG antivirus . About a week ago dictation worked again . Based on what I had read I thought that maybe it would be a keyboard setting that would affect dictation for the better. When I look at choosing a keyboard , I saw Japanese keyboard is highlighted but the button is off , and the US keyboard choice was desensitized. I did change the keyboard from dark to light . But who knows what other changes I may have made - it just started working again, until the next day when it stopped working. Is working now and I have dictated this question ; so don't be surprised if there are typos and grammar mistakes .

 Does anyone have a definitive explanation as to how I can turn on or off dictation capability ? I believe I was able to dictate by hitting the microphone on the keyboard before I downloaded Alexa . After uninstalling AVG I installed malware bites. Maybe that last action helped?

 My criteria for success understanding the problem is to be able to turn dictation off for the day and then turning on the next day and have it work for two weeks .

It is also important to note that I am doing this project on my phone; therefore, solutions available for Android phones will be highly appreciated.

Please reply soon, because the due date for this project is close. Thank you. :)

Hi there,

I am using a hybrid tablet pc with windows 10 (with Dockable keyboard and trackpad) however, when I close the table in laptop mode the screen does not shut off and go into sleep mode like it used to I have tried changing settings in the power management screen to no avail. Is there a way to force this in the registry? I have heard that this could be an issue with intel engine management and there are suggestions to roll back to a previous driver I have not attempted this suggested solution yet

Hello everyone,
I have a few Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and a couple of them run really hot.  It usually happens when starting up for the first time that the Surface Pro 4 will run hot and the fan is running constantly for about 20-30 minutes.  Then it seems to regulate and operate normally.
Should this be happening?  Is it possibly hardware or software driven?
Nothing really shows up in the event logs that stands out.

I've been using OPENDNS on my Netgear R7000 for over a year - it successfully filters out undesirable items from all computers on our home network.  A few days ago I noticed that it still blocks when using tablets (iPads / iPhones) but is no longer work on any hard-wired computer.  Been trying to troubleshoot this for days - no luck.  Have tried all suggestions in their forums (https://support.opendns.com/hc/en-us/articles/227988707-Why-OpenDNS-is-Only-Working-on-One-or-Some-of-my-Computers-Devices#scenario2) - no luck.  Anyone else had this issue?

We have a shop that uses Topaz Model: T-LBK462-BSB-R signature pads in a Remote Desktop environment. We have 7 total signature pads and two of the pads freeze up and stop working when the software tries to call the signature pad on COM9. The other 5 signature pads are configured exactly the same and are working with no issues.

The OS that the pads are working on are either Windows 7 x64 or Windows 10 x64 and can't seem to figure out why the other two pads freeze up and stop working. I can login to the remote server once and use the DEMO software remotely and it works, but every time after that we have to force-close the software and re-establish the connection.

Just wondering if anyone knows why these two pads may be timing out and not working, or why the COM ports become non-responsive. I've tried swapping computers, and signature pads and the pads work on other computers with no issues. I have the latest USB drivers and BIOS and have wiped and reloaded windows to try and resolve the issue.

I did some testing on the server with HyperTerminal and found that I wasn't able to connect to COM9 right away, but after I run "change port /query" on the server in the command prompt, I was able to connect to COM9 with HyperTerminal with no issues and run a test on the sig pad. Why would running "change port /query" make the redirected port available?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thank you!

I had this question after viewing delphi intraweb upload file.

I have an Intraweb app  (Delphi XE4) which successfully uses IWFileUploader. User can upload a file to the application's dedicated folder if they access the app via a windows pc.

Problem is that one of the users has a Samsung Android tablet which they use to access the web application, and IWFileUploader doesn't work.
Ideally they'd be able to take a photo with the tablet, and upload it to the Intraweb app's web directory.

Is this even possible?
What's the best way to proceed?

We have 2 Azpen a1048 tablets that were recently purchased from a local retailer. When attempts were made to install needed applications there were errors that would occur after install saying "Root Detected". A call to Azpen support concluded that the tablets needed to be "flashed", however they were sure to mention that doing so would void the warranty even though they provided the image.

Thank fully we only flashed 1 of the tablets which can be recognized via USB, but since the flashed image was applied NOTHING appears on the screen when it is powered on. The power button was held in for minutes and left charging overnight - still nothing appears on screen. Not even the Android robot. We cannot get this item to display anything, but we can see the storage via Windows Explorer.

We have tried 2 compatible Allwinner tools, both which say flashing 100% complete, but the tablet fails to display anything on screen. It's disappointing that Azpen would conclude flashing was needed and then say it's not supported. I'm hoping somebody has an idea before we throw this tablet away.

Any advice will be most appreciated. Thx

Hi,

We're experiencing an issue with regards to ADFS 3.0 login page not rendering correctly on a mobile device under certain conditions.  I have attached a screenshot.

I have an Android device and when using Chrome the text overlays the password box if I use my SwitfKey keyboard but if I use the standard builtin keyboard then the text is fine.

On some other devices (Windows phone) the text overlays without the keyboard on the screen at all.

Is there something I can do in the ADFS config for the login page?

Thanks

I have a Hexa Spring 8 Windows 10 tablet. I was downloading anniversary update and after it finished, the screen told me that the tablet was offline and to enter the last password, which I did. It tells me "your device is offline. Sign in with the last password used on this device. " 
How can I reset it without a keyboard (no visible poke hole) .

We were evaluating one of these tablets but once we had added it to the domain, and our Group Policies had applied, we need to use CTRL-ALT-DEL to log in.

There are no key sequences to do this on the Lenovo.

Other tablets use Power key + Volume up or down, but this does not work.

I updated it to the latest BIOS but still no go.

Lenovo customer support did not have a clue.

Obviously you can attach a keyboard and do it, but we need to use these as tablets in the filed without keyboards.
