Surface Touchscreen Troubleshooting

Check the display panel carefully. If the glass on your Surface touchscreen is cracked or broken, touch may not work.

Sometimes it has been found that if you have trouble touching just the item you want, consider using a Surface Pen or another capacitive stylus.

Clean your Surface display panel with a soft, lint-free cloth dampened with water or eyeglass cleaner. But never spray directly on panel.

Sometimes non-responsive screens back to normal after a simple restart.

Uninstall and reinstall Touch Screen driver via device manager. Make sure the related driver is the latest one.

  • Open device manager
  • Locate Human Interface Devices.
  • Right click on HID-compliant touch screen > Uninstall

Calibration is another tool which is used for Touchscreen troubleshoot.

  • Type Calibrate in the search box
  • use the arrow keys to highlight Calibrate the screen for pen or touch input, and then press Enter.
  • There is a Reset button which can be used to get factory settings.

Make sure that your Surface is not adjacent to  other electronic devices ,which can interfere with the touchscreen or make the cursor on your Surface move around unexpectedly.

Slow Charging of Surface Devices

Problem:

My Surface device won’t charge faster. How to fix?

Resolution:

Here are the a few recommendations from Microsoft:

  1. Always try to charge your Surface device  with the  Connect charger that came with your Surface for faster charging.
  2. If You use the USB-C port to charge your Surface then Surface devices will only charge with USB 2.0 or 3.0 compliant chargers. Chargers that provide 5 volts, 1.5 amps, or 7.5 watts can charge, but they’ll be so slow that they should only be used if there’s no other option. Low voltage USB A chargers with a USB A to USB-C cable won’t work at all.
    3. If the battery is drained, and the charger you’re using uses 60 watts or above, your Surface will instantly turn on when you plug it in. If you’re using a charger that uses less than 60 watts, your Surface must charge to 10% before it will turn on.
    4.For Surface Book without the NVIDIA GPU with the regular base, we recommend a charging power of 33 watts, and for Surface Book with the NVIDIA GPU we recommend 93 watts.

If You are still facing problem then there may be problems with the charger adapter or power cable or the charging port or, faulty battery.
