Yay! I hope more people join, I love my Surface 3, and I am hoping to find more stuff to do with it.
Hi.
My surface 3 shows plugged in but it not charging. It only charges when the battery is drained completely.
The problem may be because the driver can not detect even when it is plugged in.
What is the remedy? Have uninstalled and reinstalled driver.

@andysim I have the same problem and tried to uninstall and reinstall the driver but the battery still cannot charge even when it is plugged in.

It charges again only when the battery is completely drained.
