The ZenBook UX430UA stayed pleasantly cool throughout our tests. After we streamed video for 15 minutes, the touchpad measured 80.5 degrees Fahrenheit, the keyboard hit 85.5 degrees and the bottom went up to 89 degrees. We consider temperatures below 95 degrees comfortable, so this laptop definitely fits the bill."
You omitted the numbers and letters off the ux430ua-"xxxx" so I can't see if anyone measured the surface temps. I do know folk that would yelp if the surface temp was 95F.
Use a laser spot thermometer to see what temp it is.
I recently got my Asus Zenbook UX430UA replaced, and received a brand new one. It is running Windows 10 home 64 bit.
I have been using it for one week without problem. Suddenly, the area of the touchpad, especially the fingerprint scanner, became extremely hot, to the point where it burns the finger. The touchpad stopped working at all and does not appear in the device manager.
It cools down when I power off the laptop, but it gets burning hot again the very second I turn it on.
I tried running a diagnostic and troubleshooting with no result.
I am assuming that the heat comes from the battery but I am not 100% sure.
I have no idea what to do next!
I am worried of keeping the laptop on for too long, as the heat could cause damage.
