View Full Version : Asus Rog Strix G 531GT weird smell

Well I want to know about Asus Rog Strix G531GT ,
So what happened basically was that recently 4-5 days ago I noticed something strange with my laptop.
First of all I faced some heating issues, which I still think maybe those are not particularly heat issues and may be normal, as I asked about that in earlier thread and it seemed to be all normal.
Here's a link to me earlier thread :- https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?118190-Heating-Issues-Asus-Rog-G531GT&p=804439#post804439

Second problem is that I somehow smelled something strange from this portion of my laptop. Image attached :-

So I've attached the image marking the area from where I am getting that weird smell.
It feels like burning smell, or might not be burning smell, maybe common odour coming from these laptops because these machines are definitely hot from within.
And yes, to get that smell one needs to be real close to the keyboard (i.e. the arrow keys of the laptop) otherwise you won't get the odour. By real close I mean literally you need to touch your nose almost to those keys. Guy, I am stressing out regarding this and owing to COVID-19 all stores are closed. So please help whether it is a common odour, like people are facing this or should I look for some other solution. Even I rarely game for the past 2-3 months.
Please HELP !!
