If you are a new owner of the Surface Book or Surface Pro 4, you may know there are some bugs with the trackpad, display and standby. Microsoft knows too, which is why we are glad to see a new firmware update rolling out right now.
Checking under Windows Update we can see a System Hardware Update 11/2/2015 is coming through on our Surface Book and two Surface Pro 4s. Here is what is new:
System Hardware Update 11/2/2015
- HD Graphics 520 driver update (v126.96.36.19908) addresses some display issues, including some scenarios that result in screen flickering.
- Display audio driver update (v188.8.131.529) supports compatibility with the updated graphics driver.
- Surface Embedded Controller Firmware update (v103.855.257.0) improves system stability.
- Surface Pen Settings driver update (v10.0.302.0) adds support for future functionality on Windows 10.
A lot of that seems very promising, and we'll be playing around tonight with our devices to see what is fixed.
Head into Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and check for updates to grab it now. You will need to restart the PC to take the changes.
