It seems that even the most modern Microsoft’s toys, like Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book aren’t bugless. Numerous early Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book adopters have reported the same issue, frequently display driver crashes. So Microsoft finally released a fix for this driver problem through the latest update for Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book.

Users were quite unsatisfied by the fact that their brand new premium device has an issue like this, so they flooded Microsoft forums with complains. And today, a Microsoft employee named Joe, answered all unsatisfied users, by announcing the fix that Microsoft prepared for them. “Hi all, We will be releasing a new driver sometime later today,” he said, adding that “this new driver will improve the situation.”

This is not the first Surface Pro 4/Surface Book update which fixes the display issues, we remind you that Microsoft also released a similar update at the beginning of November, but it appears that users are still experiencing screen issues on their brand new Microsoft devices, so the company comes with another set of fixes for the display issues.

So, if you own the Surface Pro 4 or the Surface Book, and you’re experiencing display driver crashes, just head to Windows Update, and Windows should automatically download the fix.

We should not blame Microsoft for certain bugs and errors in its new premium devices, because new hardware often comes with a few issues here and there. Which is good is that Microsoft is aware of present issues, and it delivers fixing updates shortly after issues are discovered.

Tell us in the comments, are you planning to get one of these premium Microsoft devices soon? And if you already own one, do you have any other problems? If you do, tell us which issue bothers you on your Surface Book/Surface Pro 4, and we’ll try to find a proper solution for your problem.
