    I don't know what happen, if maybe an update may have caused my surface 2 to not charge any more. I never had a problem with the battery. All of a sudden the battery is completely dead and won't charge.

    I bought the surface in Sept. Any one else having this problem? I keep current with all updates.

    have you done any refreshes on the box, besides that from your description sounds like the battery died. I have a surface pro and I haven't had any issues with the battery. I have seen laptops where the battery just dies and I have seen laptops where it says connected not charging which simply meant the power cord wasn't the right one, or it was receiving enough power from the wall. I would suggest bringing it to a ms store or going through the ms website, their help has been pretty good. My guesstimate is its still less then a year old. I hope that helps, let me know if you have any questions.

    I ended up going through the surface online service center. This must be a common problem with the battery. I selected through the questions, they said I need to send mine back for repair. They are going to send me a replacement right out. I'm sure it will be a refurb model, but none the less. Support like this is amazing. Can't find support this easy will.

    The only question I have now is. How do I send mine back with out all my information on it?
