My ‘V’ arrived yesterday. I’ll save my overall comments for some other time.
TLDR: See pic below - Slide Down wasn’t instigated by me - V then in coma.
After minimal use, with a well charged battery, something unexpected appeared on the screen with text that I didn’t have chance to read then the V powered off.
It then would not power back on. Usual tricks of close and open keyboard, press buttons on keyboard, momentary press of power button, press and hold of power button… gradually escallated to… looong press of power button (maybe 10, then 15, then 30, then 60 seconds, etc), then attempted ‘reset’ using power button and Volume Down together, etc etc, Nothing worked. Left it a few minutes, tried this lot of attempts again… still no joy.
Left it maybe 30 mins then, thankfully, with a normal momentary press of the power button it booted again (this is what I’m referring to as it’s ‘Coma’)… but approx. 30 mins later it happened again. Again, I missed what the text on the screen said. Again, after approx. 30 mins, it came back to life but this time offered to do a Windows Repair… I selected the ‘Restart’ option instead and it booted.
Next time it happened I was determined to catch it in the act by filming it so that I could play it back slo-mo and catch what it said. A screen-shot and a link to the cropped video is below.
This time it happened 13 mins and 11 seconds after boot. That was approx. an hour ago now and it’s still in its ‘Coma’ state.
Now I obviously didn’t "Slide to shut down’ my PC so my initial thoughts are that this is something to do with Ghost Touches (which I’ve seen already)… with the ghosty dots on the screen… but not a potentially moving ‘ghost touch’ until, maybe, this one.
Perhaps a driver update will fix this but given posts such as the below I’m reluctant unless I can be directed towards the most stable known driver update there is.
I have a couple of other issues open with Support so, as yet, not wanting to add to their woes before I do further research, I’ve not contacted them about it but obviously will if I cant resolve it.
Am I the first with this issue?
