Windows 11 Insider Preview: Microsoft fixes black screen on Surface Pro X


With the latest Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25145, Microsoft fixes, among other things, a known black screen and crashes on the 13-inch 2-in-1 Surface Pro X with the Microsoft SQ1 baptized Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx. In addition, account management is being drilled in the direction of Microsoft 365 and OneDrive.

Error corrections

The latest Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25145, which is currently being rolled out in the Dev Channel, which is primarily aimed at developers and experienced users, corrects an error that could lead to the Surface Pro X no longer waking up from sleep mode and instead a black screen displayed.

The account management found under Settings → Accounts has also been improved or expanded, which can now display active subscriptions such as for Microsoft 365 and OneDrive and their memory usage directly on the account overview.

Working under the hood

Improvements flow with build 25145, which again takes a step further towards Windows 11 23H2 , in the following areas:

  • Start
  • Taskbar
  • Settings
  • File Explorer
  • Task Manager
  • Input

Admin tool will be integrated

In addition to the “Suggested Actions” that are now available to all users in the US, Canada and Mexico, a new driver for the Braille speech output and the tool Local Administrator Password Solution (“LAPS”) have also been released in Windows 11 built in.

In the future, LAPS can be found under Edit Group Policy → Administrative Templates → System as an integral part of the operating system and no longer has to be used as an app. The tool has also been extensively redesigned and expanded.

Among other things, the app notifications are new, which provide information about the activities of the camera and microphone, but also about locations and contacts.

According to the Microsoft Flight Hub, Build 25145 drops build 25140 in the Dev Channel, while build 22621 in the Beta Channel represents the latest preview of Windows 11 22H2 and is also available as a system image and with a matching SDK.
