Surface Pro - Overheating

I've been having issues with my surface pro I've been running windows update that seem to go through, however the machine is getting very hot quite quickly and on occasion even causes it so turn off, doesn't even create any dump folders.
Wondering if anyone has had any similar issues with surface pro's overheating and any fixes they know of?

I've got a customer with about 90 of those and I have two in my organization which are extensively used and we've never run across this type of behavior.  I'd highly recommend you contact Microsoft.

I agree with the above re: getting it serviced.  

Look at the air exhaust vents. There should be vents allowing air flow. If there are, make sure they are not dusty.

Then, and next, the CPU may need reseating with new thermal compound and you would need to get the machine serviced for this to be done.

That's the one downside to the Surface Pro... I actually love the dang things.  But, nothing that can be serviced in the field.

install speedfan to monitor the temperatures - to be sure that's the cause

it should at least tell you the cause : cpu, video or what
you can also update all the drivers - that often helps
