  2. Surface Pro 4 Type Cover not working after Anniversary Update


    Holy hell this worked for me! Can't say how may different "fixes" I tried for this and was just short of sending my Surface Pro 4 off for repair but this worked. No Surface Type Covers (With or without fingerprint scanner) worked but now all Touch Covers are working again.

    I wasn't quite ready to give up the Pro 4, so now I get to keep it a little while longer.

    Thank you!

    Surface Pro 4 Type Cover not working after Anniversary Update


    I ran into that too with Win 10 Anniversary update. It totally disabled my Type Cover. According to Microsoft and some folks on the web, the force reboot works.

    I took the dive and did a hard reboot of my Surface Pro 4 (Microsoft warns that do this only with Surface Pro 4) This is verbatim from Microsoft:

    Use this two-button shutdown process to make sure your Surface is turned off completely.
    [table][tr][td]Step 1:[/td] [td]Press and hold the power button on your Surface for 30 seconds and then release it.[/td] [/tr] [tr][td]Step 2:[/td] [td]Press and hold the volume-up button and the power button at the same time for at least 15 seconds, and then release both. The screen may flash the Surface logo, but continue holding the buttons down for at least 15 seconds. (this is the scary part. Note that I saw the BIOS screen came on within 3 - 4 seconds... but you need to continue to hold like Microsoft said. The screen went off for me then on again with the BIOS screen then off.. that's when I released the buttons)[/td] [/tr] [tr][td]Step 3:[/td] [td]After you release the buttons, wait 10 seconds.[/td] [/tr] [/table]
    Press and release the power button to turn your Surface back on.


    And that did it for me. You would think Microsoft would test their Win 10 Anniversary update on their own Surface Pro devices... oh well.
