Surface Pro gaming, microphone and bleeding problems

By Updated on

The Microsoft Surface Pro has now been available since Saturday and while some people are reporting that these devices are now starting to get hard to get hold of, those who already have one seem to be happy, well for the most part. We say this because it was inevitable that certain people would have a few problems, but have you experienced any issues?

While looking on Windows Phone Central Forums it seems that the most common Surface Pro problems are with gamming, the microphone and backlight bleeding. However, these are not going to be the only issues, but these are the most discussed at this time.

One user had said that he found an issue while playing Guild Wars 2 on his Surface Pro becasue when you have the Menu Up display showing, clicking the mouse does not register. However, a reader has tried to resolve this issue by suggesting that the person having the issue should try scaling down to 100 percent. This can be done by going to desktop, right click then Personalize and Display. However, some people find that changing from 150 to 100 percent makes it harder to use with touch when back to using the desktop.

Borderlands 2 is said to run a little choppy even on the lowest setting, so clear that the Surface Pro is not that great at running some of the more graphic intensive games.

It’s also been suggested that some Surface Pro devices could be suffering from a microphone issue, because there is said to be a very loud background noise when using Skype, well for the person you are calling, which could point to an issue with the microphone. Several tests were run and the noise is pretty loud, but this does seem to be an isolated problem, unless you are suffering from the same issue?

The final problem is said to be with backlight bleeding towards the right of the screen at the bottom. However, it’s not as bad as we have seen with others devices, but it’s there nonetheless. Again, this seems like an isolated issue.

These are just three Microsoft Surface Pro issues that we have come across, but have you found any others?

    I’m glad that the only problems are with high-graphic games that no other tablet can run, a speaker that’s only there for emergencies when you forget to bring a headset (who uses inbuilt mics out of choice?) and a problem that has afflicted all popular tablets to at least the same extent – on the other hand you got there the worlds most powerful and productive tablet that kicks my last-years midrange laptops ass.
