I received a Surface Go as a Christmas present this year. As Paul explained, it was too slow, especially compared to the Surface Pro 3 that it replaced. As with my Surface Pro 3, I transitioned the Go from 10 S mode to 10 Home. This "upgrade" made the Go run worse than before.
At this point, I decided to install the insider preview, because i love to punish myself. After installing an update, the Go would no longer boot up. It was equivilent to a MBR failure. I decided, because the Go was so new, I would do a fresh 1809 install. 1809 installed without a hitch, after which I installed 19H1.
Now, the Go is running far better than it did out-of-the-box. Initially, I could only run one app at a time. Now, the device multitasks without any issue.
Any ideas on how a clean install could help this much?
I've purchased a mini-display to HDMI cable recently for my Surface Pro 3, running the latest insider build . Although it handles video perfectly, it is experiencing an audio issue that I cannot resolve.
Audio will only play for 10 minutes, down to 1 second on occasions. When it stops playing, the only way to resolve, temporarily, is to switch audio output to speakers then back again to the display. However, this resolution only lasts for seconds, at best. I have tried uninstall/reinstall the audio device in question; intel display audio; from device manager, removal/reinstallation of audio drivers, and even disabled/re-enabled the Trusted Platform Module in the UEFI.
Any advice on how I could resolve this issue would be appreciated.
