- How the flickering got started.
The surface pro X needed to be recharged it was low battery, I have it setup in a cool room about 65-75 degrees F., after charging I noticed my mobile hotspot from my surface pro X was off, so I went to go and check what was wrong and I come back to my surface pro X having an off color screen and flickering all the time. This device was purchased in January of 2019... it is now May of 2020... Luckily the warranty expires January of 2021, but still even if I get a replacement it is going to be garbage and break in a year or so anyways..
- Steps you have taken so far.
I have tried googling and troubleshooting everything, updating it to the newest windows update, reinstalling and reformatting... nothing fixes it. I am an IT professional it's a hardware issue.
