    Hi, I wrote yesterday (on reddit) that my surface can't connect to any monitor , and today when i was testing it more I noticed that the monitor played the audio from the surface , so I figured that it must be the port pins , and yes

    as you see the mini disproportional port pins are not aligned correctly

    so what are my options ?

    1- fix it by moving the pins somehow

    2- plan B , use a USB to hdmi cable\adapter

    BTW , i imported the device , so i don't have a microsoft store in my country and since it's not released here they don't support it , so I think I'm on my own this time and microsoft will not help

    any help will be appreciated , thanks

    get the m$ wireless display adaptor. it is small, light and easy to use. just plug it into any display and you can connect wirelessly. best done with a larger tv. but can work with a whole host of others. also, you can easily get a usb, to hdmi adapter. some of them have multiple hdmi connectors on one adaptor. so there's that also. good luck. i hope this helps.
