Yesterday a very strange issue happened to me. I had to change my password (the hotmail one - to which all my things are linked) and for some reasons all my Metro Apps were broken (no more logo and kind of a stange name instead of the usual app's name -- like AppexNews instead of News for instance) and I was unable to open the App Store. It was not even launching. I ran the Store troubleshooter, it came back with errors but was unable to solve them. The solution was to refresh my system, which is, to be honnest, a little pain in the ass. But it worked. During the refreshing process, I had the chance to notice that my screen has a lot of yellow spots in the 4 corners and in the left and right sides. At least 6-8 yellow areas. And I also had the chance to hear that my fan is not well balanced. When the latter is running, if I tilt my SP3 a liitle bit (which I did because I was in my bed holding my SP3 as a tablet), it makes a friction noise. Which sounds like a big mosquito. I've never heard it before as I mostly use my SP3 on a flat surface with the kickstand. I am living in Québec city and we have no MS Store there. The closest is in Toronto. Exactly where I am for the holidays. So I am going to have a walk there. Do you guys know if they could do something for me (like send my SP3 for a fix), even if I bought my SP3 further north in a BestBuy store ? Or do I have to go to BB ? I wish you all a nice end of year. Take care.
