    Do dead pixels still exist? I don't think I've seen one in at least 5 or 10 years.

    I just want one that stops randomly stopping...:(

    Yesterday, pen quit, then touch screen froze (although keyboard and mouse worked) - RESTART...:(

    Today, about to go to hearing, pen stopped, then computer wouldn't recognize keyboard or touchpad - RESTART...:(

    Got back to office, wouldn't recognize wireless keyboard or mouse - RESTART...:(

    Various combinations of this have been going on every few days; rarely daily - just in advance of "important moments" like in the middle of multi-party teleconferences, hearings with judges, little s#*t like that...:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Maybe it's time to start hangng out in the RANT THREAD again...o_Oo_Oo_Oo_Oo_O

    I hear you @metalsiren - but I am SO BIPOLAR, because I still love my Surface Pro 4. Actually, is that bipolar, or am I just in an endless abusive relationship...I feel like that sad old joke about the masochist and the sadist:

    Masochist (Me): Beat me...
    Sadist (MS): Noooooooo...

    Modern version:

    Masochist (Me): Please just let it run reliably...........................
    Sadist (MS): Oops...pen froze...sorry...RESTART...:p............
    Masochist (Me): RESTARTED...Please just let it run reliably...
    Sadist (MS): Oops...screen froze...sorry...RESTART...:p.......
    Masochist (Me): RESTARTED...Please just let it run reliably..
    Sadist (MS): Oops...low battery...sorry...RECHARGE...:p.....
    Masochist....Argggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg

    Mine never frozen so far, everything is perfect software-wise. But keep in mind I made a fresh OS installation with the latest Media Creation Tool.

    The strip on my surface 4 comes off a bit, and a little piece of brown PCB protrudes near the top right corner. I'm very disappointed with Microsoft build quality. I will try an exchange or even refund.

    I feel it's something I'll do. Is there any specific issues reinstalling win 10 on SP4? Or is it simple "make bootable USB with media creation tool, insert, install, done?" Is there a need to re-register device or something?

    He'll not have the latest OS build probably that way.
