Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Please press and hold the Power on / off button on your Surface Pro device for about 30 seconds, then turn it back on and check. If that does not work, please try the following steps:

  1. Press and hold the Power button on the Surface for 30 seconds, then release.
  2. Press and hold the Volume Up button and the Power button at the same time for at least 15 seconds, and then release both buttons.
    - (Note: The screen may flash the Surface logo but continue holding those two buttons down for at least 15 seconds.)
  3. After releasing the buttons, wait about 10 seconds. Then press and release the Power button to turn the Surface back on, and check.

Please reply at the box below to continue. Thank you,

Ok now. Why did it happen?
Expert:  Viet -MS Office Tech replied 5 months ago.

Great. It is likely just a glitch, i.e., windows memory gets corrupted, so using my steps above would refresh the computer's memory. I recommend to shut down / restart the computer every day or every couple of days or so in order to refresh the computer's memory. It should continue to work fine from now on, but if there is still any issue later or If you need help with anything else, please let me know any time. Also, can you please take a moment to rate my service today by clicking on the 5-star icon at the top, then click on Submit. Thank you very much,
