    This morning as I was using my 2017 Surface Pro, I was away from my desk for about an hour. When I came back, my computer was off. I pressed the power button, and the Windows logo screen stayed on for an inordinately long time. Eventually, I got a tiny error message in the top left corner: BlInitializeLibrary failed 0xc00000bb

    It takes a couple of minutes to enter the BIOS using the Vol + & Power Button combo - the logo screen stays for a couple of minutes, and I am able to get into the setup.

    Any idea what I can do to get up and running? A Google search points me in the direction of a BIOS error.

    This is a BIOS error. You can get away with this.

    Run your system into BIOS (UEFI) mode. Then Disable Secure Boot. Try to restart your Surface Pro and see if it works.
