Microsoft has announced the release of an important firmware update for the Surface Laptop 5. The update is specifically designed to address several critical issues that have been affecting users, delivering enhancements aimed at improving the overall user experience. According to the official announcement, this update includes fixes for problems related to booting to the Windows logo, as well as battery error messages within the Surface App and boosts the stability of the Surface Thunderbolt 4 Dock.

Key Improvements Detailed

The focal points of the February 2024 update are threefold. Firstly, it effectively resolves the intermittent booting issue to the Windows logo, a problem that has troubled a number of users by preventing their devices from starting up correctly. Secondly, the update addresses inaccuracies in battery status reporting within the Surface App, ensuring users receive correct information regarding their device’s battery health and status. Lastly, enhancements to the stability of the Surface Thunderbolt 4 Dock are included, aimed at improving connectivity and performance for users leveraging this accessory.

Installation Requirements and Additional Components

This firmware update is available exclusively for systems running Windows 10, Version 22H2, or later versions. Users interested in applying this update to their Surface Laptop 5 devices can obtain it directly from Microsoft’s official website. In addition to the major fixes, the update package installs two further components based on the device’s configuration: the Surface System Aggregator (Firmware 15.104.139.0) and the Microsoft Surface Thunderbolt(TM) 4 Dock Firmware Update (Firmware 2.26.7.0).

Given the nature of firmware updates, which cannot be uninstalled or reverted to a previous version once applied, Microsoft advises users to ensure their data is securely backed up before proceeding with the installation. To date, no significant issues have been reported following the application of the February 2024 update. However, Microsoft remains receptive to user feedback and is encouraging users to report any problems encountered post-update in the comments section of the official announcement page.
