    recently the surface book 2 with dGPU gives some crazy noise from the base, it is not those constant one, it is like: every second, it starts low pitch then high pitch, sounds like something stuck in the fan and every second it hits a choking spot and gives that high pitch noise.

    Hi there, @unruledboy

    Indeed, sounds like some fuzz or hair is stuck in the fan.

    Get a cold blower (like the exhaust of a vacuum cleaner with a clean bag and filter, or “canned air”) and blow into all ports and vents. You just might clear it up, or relieve some noise.
