    Hi there,
    I bought a surface Pro in March of last year. About 1 week ago I heard a a loud abnormal noise that I believe was a cooling fan.
    I shut it down and blew out the vents that I could find. It started up and continued to make the sound. It stopped all of a sudden and has not made the sound since. It is very cold here in WA right now and I use it outside mostly. It seems to be running pretty hot and the weather is warming up. I am almost at the end of my warranty I think.

    I am planning to take it to the service center that I bought it from shortly so please save those great pieces of advise.
    Has anyone else ran into this problem? I Google'd it and didn't see any other posts anywhere except how hard these are to work on.
    Any thoughts??

    Running hot and working in the cold, could be thermal shock in an unhappy component, but that's a complete guess, of course. Since you're planning on taking it in anyway, I don't see why you want a second opinion/guess about that. Most importantly, if it's still running, backup everything before taking it in, as they may just do a replacement.
