    After installing the latest tech preview on my Surface Pro 3, I was greeted with the desktop/start followed by a flashing display which lead to the Surface restarting before I could do anything. Here's how to fix:

    1. Connect your Surface Pro 3 to an external display (I used my TV using the display port)
    2. Run windows update from All settings/Update & Recovery/Update
    3. Restart the Surface (KEEP THE EXTERNAL DISPLAY CONNECTED!)
    4. Go to Intel's website and download drivers for the graphics - Laptop/HD 4200/Version ending .4080
    5. Restart the Surface (KEEP THE EXTERNAL DISPLAY CONNECTED!)
    6. Log into Windows and then disconnect the external display, Tada!!

    The final step is optional:

    7. If you're like me and find almost no apps work, revert back to 8.1 and wait for the Consumer Release - After all, this is still an early beta so expect many of the new features and features you're used to in 8.1 to not work or not work very well.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks,
    Iain.
