Dave, this is essentially a brand new laptop. I typically have it connected to an ASUS dock and leave it setting on its edge. Display is off as I use an external monitor, keyboard and mouse. I am not a heavy user. Wonder if this laptop with an SSD drive sitting on its back edge is an issue??? I dont have ASUS AI installed so would not have any idea how to change temp or change the clock speed for that matter.
Leaning toward Repair Install when i have more time.
Thanks for all your work.
