    And it ain't doing too well on my desktop either! Anybody else having SP# issues? Blank screen, flashing screen, touchscreen not working etc.

    It's a display driver thing. Try lowering your resolution before it crashes and update drivers. Worked for me

    Is there anyway to change the resolution outside of the OS? Mine flashes and becomes unresponsive immediately upon log in :(

    Can you hook it up to an external display? I connected mine to another display, then hit Win+P to put the display on both monitors. Then I ran update, and everything is working great so far.

    I rebooted into safe mode and uninstalled the driver. Update then installed the right driver.

    I connected it to an external monitor, startet the Windows Update and after that everthing was running smoothly!

    Yes connecting an external monitor will stop the flashing for some situations. Just remember to update the driver to v.4079 for the Surface P3.

    Runnig the Windows Update did that for me because a device update was included. Screenflashing disappeared...
