    Hi, my Surface just "sort of " died :-(
    When I try to turn it on it stops With "SURFACE" on the screen and stays that way.

    Anyone have a solution or ideas what to do ?

    Yes i tried that too, no reaction.

    I will maybe let it stay With the "Surface" logo on screen and see what happens, time is now 1 am (in Norway) so I need to go to sleep, and then see tomorrow.
