Hi, I just recently sent my Surface Pro 4 for servicing (for mild glitching on the display). Just wondering, how long will it take to ship back to me? As I kinda urgently needs the laptop at this period of time.
Bro, how do you reach out to Microsoft and get them to service? Thanks alot!

The only other way I know of is to use their online Support Chat but I don't know if they support Hardware now. They used to years ago.

Is your product still under warranty. As mine is not, it requires me to make a payment of $350 before completing the request...

Sorry its $360.

For MS Repair Order:

Out Of Warranty - Standard Exchange
(SGD 360)
Once non-functioning unit is received, it will be replaced with a similar device.

I exchanged when it is still under warranty. microsoft do not repair your surface. They will replace it with another 1. The replacement I got is as good as new.

My warranty has over and have to pay a $360 for replacement. I have checked out repai centre outside but they told me there will be a risk of crack screen and replacement will be expensive for screen. Sigh.. made the wrong choice.

If you have the license key, you can download media creation tool, create a usb stick and install Win10. Then again, you can just try that, if the installation use the CD key in the UEFI, then you don't need to key in any CD key.
