    Try using "canned air" to blow into the cooling slots and see if that helps. Also, run a virus/malware scan. If all that checks out try a fresh install of the system software.

    Anyone dare install Win 11 beta on their Surface Pro 6?

    Not really what you asked, but I've installed on my S3 8MB/256. No problems considering I have Bitdefender loaded. M~

    Intel Driver nightmare!

    The following worked for me (caveat I'm on the insider program). I uninstalled the intel driver, rebooted the machine and let it repair itself. M~
