Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
This is usually an issue with the Firmware, so I would first like you to do this please.
Remove the charger from the Surface and hold the power button to off for 35 seconds.
Release, then connect the charger and try to turn on the Surface.
Let me know the results please
Thank you

No change

ok, did you receive any disks with the Surface, and how old is it?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No disks at all and the Surface Pro 3 is about four months old
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, one of two things have occurred.
Usually this is indicative of the hard drive crashing, as it cannot contact it and then requests you to reinstall it.
Or it lost the hard drive through a fault on the Tablet.
We will try to access the recovery menu as the installation will be on that.
Power off the surface again.
Then hold the volume UP and power and keep it held until it gets to the recovery menu or errors again.
