How to Clean Surface Book Connectors
How to clean surface book connectors
The Surface Book is an ultra book with serious punch. The fact that the Surface Book line has a discrete GPU (in some models) and is loaded with so much power is what makes it so powerful. The idea that the Keyboard and Touch Pad attachments can be removed, much like on the Surface Pro range, is mind-boggling. And on the hardware side, a stunning Hinge setup is in place. It’s incredibly easy to attach or detect it from the setup at any moment with simply a push of a button, thanks to the power of muscular power.
You’ll need to take care of your Surface Pro, Surface Book, and Surface Laptop device in the same way you would your pet or automobile. We’ll go over some cleaning and maintenance suggestions for your Surface device running Windows 10 in this post.
Cleaning hints for your Surface
The following are the topics on which we shall cover helpful hints, as recommended by Microsoft:
- Cleaning in general
- The condition of your battery
- Maintaining your touchscreen.
- Taking care of the cover and the keyboard
- Maintenance of Alcantara.
- Taking care of the power cord
Using a soft, lint-free cloth soaked with water, clean the screen. Applying water on the screen directly is not a good idea.
Directly above the windows icon, click the power icon. Pick the option to restart.
The Driver for the Touchscreen Isn’t Working
In the search field adjacent to the start button, type device manager. Choose the arrow to the left of Human Interface Devices in the device manager result. Select disable from the right-click menu for HID-compliant touch screen. Select enable from the context menu of HID-compliant touch screen.

Slow Laptop Performance
The device’s applications take a long time to load when it is turned on.
Consider relocating your Surface Book to a more ventilated area. Allow it to cool for five minutes, and if you’re running a memory-intensive application, try stopping it for a few minutes.
Click the windows icon in the lower left corner of your screen to check for low disc space. Select settings by scrolling down and using the drop-down menu. After that, decide on a system and storage. By selecting the:c drive, you can see how much space is left on your hard disc. If you’re running out of disc space, delete any unnecessary programmes and files.
Entire images are not visible on the screen
When you launch an image on your smartphone, only a portion of the image is displayed. The rest has been faded or omitted.
Updates to the Surface and Windows are no longer valid
Select Start, Settings, Update & Security, and Windows Update from the lower left corner of the screen. Check for updates is the option to select. Updates should be installed.
It’s Time to Change the Display Scaling
Go to Settings>Display>Display after clicking on Start. Adjust the scale percentage if necessary using the slider bar.
The keyboard isn’t working as it should
The letters will not appear at the same time as the characters are entered because each key is tapped separately. Once typed, only a few characters appear on the screen.
The keyboard isn’t properly attached
The Detach key will blink green if your keyboard isn’t connected properly. With a moderate amount of pressure, press the Surface Book down into the keyboard.
Detachable Keyboard with Dirty Connectors
Cotton swab the silver connector pins on the keyboard with the most potent isopropyl alcohol you can find. You clean all sides of the three connectors, make sure to use a fresh section of the cotton swab. Clean the pins of the connector with a pencil eraser first (that attach to the Surface). Clean the pins with an isopropyl alcohol-soaked cotton swab after that. Make sure the pins are clear of cotton fibres and dried.
Updates for your operating system are no longer available
Surface should be plugged in. Search for device management in the search field next to the start button. Choose Device Manager and then the arrow next to the Battery category. Select uninstall after double-clicking Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery. Select Settings>Update and security>Windows Update from the start menu. It will automatically restart and update when you select Check for Updates. If it doesn’t restart, go to Start, Power, then Restart.
Battery should be replaced

The device’s speakers are silent
The sound from the device is not audible while playing an audio or video file. The openings for the speaker and microphone are blocked. Make sure there are no obstructions between the speaker and microphone apertures. Remove them if they exist. There is no sound since the volume isn’t turned up high enough. Double-check that the volume is turned up. If the volume isn’t turned up, use the buttons on the Surface, the keyboard (if one is available), or the desktop taskbar. Audio settings may also need to be tweaked in some apps.
Headphones, for example, aren’t compatible with the system
To begin, make sure that your accessory works with another device. Make sure the accessory and Surface Book are connected tightly. If the audio accessory connects via Bluetooth, make sure the Surface Book and the device are properly connected. If your Surface Book is shutting down, don’t remove the keyboard. Press the Detach key again if you accidentally press it while your Surface Book is shutting down. Any time you want, you can connect the keyboard. To remove the keyboard from the Surface Book, both batteries must be charged above 10%. Charge your Surface Book until the green light illuminates when you press the Detach key to resolve problem.
