  1. Can't log in into Windows from my Surface Pro


    I have a Surface Pro 7 and all of a sudden started not allowing me to sign in into my Outlook account.It wouldn't allow me to use the PIN option, and when I entered the password, it would tell me it was the wrong password. I keep a record of my passwords, so I know I was right.Then I chose the "reset password" option and tried that route. When I entered the new password, it told it was not the right one. I have just changed it, and I had written it down!!I tried changing my password 4 times and every time I would get the same error message. Tried to log in with the PIN many times but it wouldn

    Can't log in into Windows from my Surface Pro

    Surface Pro 3

    Hi ChrisWaters3,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Could you please help me with the below information:

    1. Does the battery drain out, if the tablet is not connected to peripherals?

    2. Which version of Windows you are using? (To check, type: winver in start menu and hit enter.)

    I understand how something like this can try your patience. This issue is an indication of faulty drivers or incompatible driver.
    However, I suggest you to follow the troubleshooting steps mentioned below:

    Method 1: Check the drivers.

    Step1: Battery driver

    1. Press Windows andR
      key together on your Keyboard.
    2. Type devmgmt.msc and hit enter.
    3. Click on view on top > Select Show hidden devices.
    4. Expand the Batteries option from the list.
    5. Select the ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery> right click on the driver and click on
      Properties.
    6. Click on Driver tab > check if you have the option to
      Roll Back Driver.
    7. If yes, Roll back the driver or uninstall it and restart the computer.
    Uninstalling the driver will be automatically installed after the system is restarted. Check if the issue is fixed.

    Step 2: Keyboard driver.

    1. In the Device manager, go to ‘Other devices’, you will find
      Unknown devices.
    2. Double tap on the unknown device > click on
      Driver tab> click on update driver.
    3. Select browse my computer for driver software> Click on Let me pick from a list of device drivers
    4. Select keyboard, then click ‘Next.
    5. Select HID Keyboard device and click finish.

    Method 2: Run the toolkit.


    Note: If your Surface is managed by your work or school, check with your organization's IT department before running the tool.

    I would suggest you to run the toolkit provided by Microsoft on
    Fix common Surface
    problems using the Surface Diagnostic Toolkit


    If the above steps, doesn’t fix the issue. I would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned in the article on
    Surface Pro 3 Battery
    FAQ for the Surface Pro Embedded Controller Firmware update
    .


    Hope it helps.
