  • On all ASUS laptops provided by Zengar, the USB 3.0 port must be used when connecting the zAmp to the laptop. The location and number of USB 3.0 ports varies between ASUS laptop models, but all USB 3.0 ports are indicated with an “SS” USB symbol near the port. USB 2.0 ports on ASUS laptops will cause the NeurOptimal session to stop prematurely and unexpectedly.
  • Included with every NeurOptimal system are two 15-foot USB cables. Try using the second USB cable  to see if the session still stops prematurely. If you do not have another USB cable from Zengar available, you can purchase a replacement from Zengar here: https://neuroptimal.com/product/usb-cable/ It is very important to ONLY use a USB cable provided by Zengar or the exact model recommended by Zengar or else your sessions will continue to stop prematurely.
  • Verify that system time is in 12-hour format (US English): On the Windows taskbar, look for the time and date.

If this is not the case, right click on the time and date, then on “Adjust date/time” and then on “Change date and time formats. The settings should match this image:

This is normal and different from what you would expect to notice with laptops. Laptops vent their heat primarily through the keyboard, side and bottom vents. Since the Surface Pros do not have an attached keyboard (actually don’t need one) they have been designed to dissipate heat differently. In addition to this, all of the heat producing components (processors, hard drive, memory, battery, etc..) are located in the tablet itself and not under the keyboard like in laptops. This having been said, if the basic system settings have not been altered this should not be an operational problem, even though the screen and back may seem to be very warm or even hot to the touch.

One sure sign of any computer system overheating would be a complete and sudden system shutdown. This would be triggered in order to prevent any heat damage from occurring to any components.

To allow efficient cooling of your Surface Pro(s), please remember to always use them with either their “kickstand” supporting them in an upright position or use a tablet stand such as this one: https://neuroptimal.com/product/tablet-stand/
