Why are we saying this is a terrible one? Well, here is the story.. Surface pro 3 sent in . for screen repair and battery replacement. However. we noticed more than just that.
The screen replacement was not successful due to the fact that the shell was so bent out of shape! we needed a new shell. We got one, and replaced the board, We also noticed it was running very hot! So we we removed the motherboard again to access the CPU area and we have cleaned and re-thermal pasted the device
But that is not all. the new battery that was placed came looking lie kit was great! after fully assembling the device we noticed windows saying that battery is not present , and device is still slightly heating up!
So we replaced the battery
It turns out that the original battery is not bad after all. the Firmware and all other software on the system needed an upgrade! When we did that the system stayed cool when Idle! Which is a great thing. With a new shell new screen and new firmware with a new windows installation, and APU cleaning and re-thermal-pasting we have refurbished this system to a different better condition that ever possible.
Microsoft Surface Pro 3 at TDR, gets a magic touch no other shop adds.
