    Strange initial screen - has anyone seen this before?


    Hi everybody,

    I have a question. I bought a new Microsoft Surface Pro and was greeted with the attached screen (I blackened some unnecessary reflections of the screen and the two white parts showed the same 7-digit number). This somehow looks dubious to me. I was asking myself: Could this be a virus? Or did I get a returned surface instead of a new one (which I paid for)?

    Since I couldn't find anything on the internet, I now hope for your help. To enable future users with the same issue to find something with a search engine, I'll write down some of the lines the screen shows:
    * "TestCase 05: Re_Enable Code integrity"
    * "PCH_Value:"
    * "Resetting OOBE ExplorerStartCount Property in Registry ...UserOOBE"
    * "Resetting OOBE UserSignedIn Property in Registry"
    * "TestCase 06: Manual check for black lines"
    * "PASS: *******" (a 7-digit number)
    * "Remove Keyboard Accessory to Shutdown"

    Does anyone know the meaning of this screen?
    What is this password for?

    I much appreciate your help!

    EDIT: changed title to be more meaningful

    :)

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds

    Cortana strange behaviours

    Hello Gabriel,

    We need to do further investigation on your concern so that we can identify why Cortana is not working properly:

    • Have you recently made any change/updates prior to this issue?
    • Did you try to login to a different user account to check if it is the same?

    In the meantime, you can try these steps to isolate the issue:

    As an initial recommendation, we suggest that you perform the troubleshooting steps listed in this

    article

    on how to troubleshoot Cortana issues
    .

    Let us know the outcome.

    Regards.
