    • There is an art to becoming Zen. It takes years and years of practice. Quiet meditation, peaceful contemplation, and—according to Asus—use of their flagship Ultrabook.

    • The UX32VD Zenbook Prime was released in the second quarter of 2012, as an update to the already-popular UX31E.

    • Here are some of the most calming features of the UX32VD:

    • 1.9 GHz Intel Core i7 processor

    • Nvidia GeForce GT 620M dedicated GPU

    • 1920 x 1080 LCD with IPS

    • 4 GB (2 GB upgradable) RAM

    • 500 GB HDD stock with 24 GB SSD cache

  2. Asus Zenbook UX32VD Teardown: step 2, image 1 of 1
    • In addition to a slick Ultrabook, Asus throws in a whole bag of goodies with the Zenbook:

    • Envelope-style laptop sleeve

    • Stylish power adapter with a machined face

    • Mini VGA-to-VGA adapter

    • USB-to-ethernet adapter

    • Small pouch to carry the adapters

    • Given the laptop's $1300 price tag, Asus managed to have none of these items look or feel cheap.

  3. Asus Zenbook UX32VD Teardown: step 3, image 1 of 1
    • Despite being a formidable Ultrabook in its own right, the Zenbook is often criticized for its thickness.

    • All things considered, the "bulging waistline" of the Zenbook isn't all that considerable. When compared with a MacBook Air, it's only a few millimeters thicker at the spine.

  4. Asus Zenbook UX32VD Teardown: step 4, image 1 of 2 Asus Zenbook UX32VD Teardown: step 4, image 2 of 2
    • The only markings indicating that this is indeed the newest Zenbook is the model number on the bottom of the laptop.

    • The UX32VD comes standard with a hotkey for "Super Performance Mode," initiated by hitting Function+Space.

    • We can't help but think that the logo is reminiscent of certain super-performing Olympic runners.

  5. Asus Zenbook UX32VD Teardown: step 5, image 1 of 2 Asus Zenbook UX32VD Teardown: step 5, image 2 of 2
    • Everyone likes a well-connected Ultrabook, and the Zenbook is not a disappointment.

    • Three USB 3.0 ports

    • Combo SD, SDHC, and MMC reader

    • Audio out

    • Mini VGA port

    • HDMI out

    • Sadly, the display adapter is not the same as the mini display adapter used by Apple, so defecting parties can't use their existing adapters with the Zenbook. But good news—Asus was kind enough to include the mini VGA-to-VGA adapter with the computer, thus allowing you to spend your extra dough on iFixit tools.

  6. Asus Zenbook UX32VD Teardown: step 6, image 1 of 2 Asus Zenbook UX32VD Teardown: step 6, image 2 of 2
    • The stylish aluminum lower case is held in place with twelve T5 Torx screws. The cover itself is not the same quality you'd find in an Apple product, but we applaud Asus' use of non-proprietary screws.

    • We love Torx screws. They provide large amounts of surface to transfer torque, they resist cam-out much better than many screws, and they're common.

    Actually, Torx is common *NOW*. A decade ago, it wasn't so easy to get a hold of.

    It's only because manufacturers started using them as "security screws" to keep people out that other manufacturers started making them much more common and plentiful that these days they're no trouble at all.

    %%&#, you want a good screw - try a Robertson. Problem is, they're heavily patented. One-handed drives (put screw on screwdriver, it stays in there with no magnetic tip required), etc. Of course, now that I've said it, someone will make a robertson security screw.

    Worf - 답글

    what is the size of the Torx screws for the bottom cover ? as i know its 5xsmall and 2xlarge is that right ?

    • The first component to come out is the battery. Point for repairability!

    • The screws on the outer case were Torx, but the eight screws holding down the battery are good-old Phillips #0. Interesting choice, Asus.

    • Pulling out the battery delivers us special bonus components: the left and right speaker assemblies that are adhered to the sides of the battery.

    Hi help, I try to plug out the battery connection and plug in back, the problem is my now my computer is not showing any things on my screen which is black screen. Help if any one

    jingtian5 - 답글

    Be very careful here to not remove the socket. I accidentally ripped off the battery connector when attempting to replace my battery.

    Chris - 답글

    Hey! I tried editing this, because all these so called philips #0 screws look to me and according to asusparts (https://www.asusparts.eu/en/partfinder/A...) are actually philips #1. And these can ofcourse be removed with #0 driver but that as you know would damage the screw.

    EDIT: This seems to be consistenly like this all over this product on ifixit, so maybe this is a difference between EU and US market, but that would be supprising.

    • The 7.4 volt, 6520 mAh battery in the UX32VD weighs 280.5 grams, accounting for approximately 20% of the Zenbook's weight.

    • By comparison, the battery in the 13" MacBook Air is approximately 22% of the Air's total weight, at 300 grams.

    • This Zenbook sports a 48 watt-hour battery, a smaller battery than the previous year's model, but a solid contender with other similarly-sized laptops.

    • 2011 Zenbook UX31A: 50 watt-hours

    • Macbook Air: 50 watt-hours

    • Acer Aspire S5: 34 watt-hours

  9. Asus Zenbook UX32VD Teardown: step 9, image 1 of 1
    • Many PC manufacturers turn to audio specialists outside of their own company to provide their laptops with sound systems. Asus is no different, looking to Bang & Olufsen to pump up the volume in the Zenbook.

    • For those of you who aren't familiar with Bang & Olufsen, their sound systems are the choice of many luxury vehicle manufacturers, including Aston Martin.

    • We're pretty sure the left speaker is Bang, while the right is Olufsen.

    • That's what we heard through the grapevine, at least.

    • We'll be here all night, folks.

    Are the speakers 4 or 8 ohm? Incase I want to retro fit generic speakers

    • In order to completely blur the lines between an Ultrabook and a high-powered laptop, Asus gave the Zenbook onboard RAM and removable RAM.

    • While this may give the Zenbook an identity crisis, it is a step in the right direction for Ultrabook design.

    • It is clear that Asus wanted to give users the ability to upgrade/repair their laptops, but could only allow for a single RAM module given the space constraints inside the already-bulging Zenbook.

    • We'll keep our eyes peeled for the onboard RAM, but the removable RAM module comes out for now.

  11. Asus Zenbook UX32VD Teardown: step 11, image 1 of 2 Asus Zenbook UX32VD Teardown: step 11, image 2 of 2
    • The Zenbook comes standard with a 500 GB, 5400 RPM 2.5" hard disk drive, in addition to 24 GB of onboard SSD storage.

    • Let's see how this hard drive measures up to other high profile Ultrabooks.

    • 2012 Apple MacBook Air 13" ($1,099.99 - $1,199.99): 128 GB SSD

    • Dell Inspiron 14z ($899.99): 500 GB, 5400 RPM HDD and 32GB onboard SSD

    • Acer Aspire S5 ($1,279.00 - $1,399.99): 2x 128 GB SSD

    • No matter which way you spin it, a 5400 RPM HDD seems a bit out of place in a $1,300 laptop.

    • These fans are pretty cool. And accessible!

    • We'll stop. We promise. Or maybe not—only time will tell.

    • Because fans are responsible for circulating the air through the computer, they are often the component that collects the most dust. Having fans that are easy to access for cleaning are important for making a device that is easy to maintain.

  13. Asus Zenbook UX32VD Teardown: step 13, image 1 of 2 Asus Zenbook UX32VD Teardown: step 13, image 2 of 2
    • There is something oddly satisfying about removing a warranty sticker. Maybe it's the feeling of irrevocability that comes with it—knowing that, from this point onward, the device is entirely yours.

    • It appears as though Asus didn't put too much engineering into enforcing their warranty. The void sticker is just a sticker—not impossible-to-remove residue on the screw head, no weird disintegrating labels. Just a sticker that actually retains a good amount of stickiness even after being removed.

    • We're not saying you should defraud companies—just stating fact.

    • With a little elbow grease, the Intel 6235 Wi-Fi / Bluetooth 4.0 card comes out of its mini PCI Express socket. Inside we find two Intel ICs:

    • Intel 82550 Fast Ethernet Controller

    • Intel 82549MDE Wi-Fi controller

    • In an industry where design often favors slimness over modularity, we're thankful that the Weefees still come as mini PCI Express cards.

    The wifi connectors seem smaller than regular U.fl connectors. Can you confirm what type of connectors they are ?

    This step is wrong. If you are replacing a motherboard, there is no need to disconnect the two wires on the LAN board. You simply remove the two screws and it pops right up. Takes no "elbow grease" whatsoever. HOPE YOU READ THIS !!!

    • Motherboard removal and replacement is fairly easy with the inclusion of labeled connectors on the board.

    • Though they're not technically "instructions," labeling sockets and connectors is extremely helpful when reassembling a machine. Thanks Asus!

    • Off come some standard connectors and screws, and the motherboard is free.

    Keep in mind that there are different sizes of screws when removing the motherboard - you will need ph#0, ph#00 and ph#000 screwdrivers.

    I actually did this recently cause I often got bluescreen with my 32vd.

    First I thought the whole device was damaged beyond repair.

    After a fresh install (Win 7) I simply disabled IDE/ATA Controller Channel 1 .

    Considering how cheap SSDs got, thats not a big loss and works fine ever since.

    Except this, I've to admit I'm surprised how sturdy this device is :)

    • The backside of the motherboard houses some more chips, including more onboard RAM.

    • 4x Hynix h5TQ2G83CFR 2 Gb DDR3 SDRAM

    • 2x Hynix h5TQ2G63DFR 2 Gb DDR3 video SDRAM

    • ITE IT8572G

    • 3x Fairchild PC78T FDMC7696

    • Richtek RT8168B PWM Controller

    • Realtek ALC269 audio codec

    • So if our tally is correct, the UX32VD has a total of 1 GB onboard video RAM! (4 x 2 Gb = 8 Gb = 1 GB)

    • Like the MacBook Pro with Retina display, the touchpad in the Zenbook is located underneath the battery. Unlike the MacBook, though, you can remove this touchpad without destroying said battery.

    • Multi-touch gestures are managed by an Elan 33200V-3600 touchpad controller.

    • In addition to a couple Phillips screws, each side of the display assembly was held to the upper case with a 4 mm hex nut. Asus may try as they like, but with our 54-bit driver kit in hand, no fastener is secure for long.

    • For the record, the hex nuts weren't meant to be a deterrent to self-service, but rather a means of space saving. In addition to holding down the display assembly, the top of each hex nut was drilled and tapped to hold one of the motherboard screws.

    • The display assembly comes off pretty easily and we're left with the upper case that houses the backlit keyboard.

    • Just like the unibody MacBooks, the keyboard in the Zenbook cannot be removed from the upper case, which means the two must be replaced simultaneously.

    Does anyone know where to find a top case replacement in Canada? I bought just the keyboard and now I'm finding out I can't separate the top case and keyboard...fml

    Jamie Guerrero - 답글

    I disassembled my Asus and I could not figure out how to remove the keyboard from the case.

    Julien Mazerolle -

    You can remove the keyboard from the top case, however it's a bit of a destructive process. I replaced my keyboard by just buying a replacement on ebay for ux31. After you remove everything, screen, motherboard etc. remove the plastic films and just pop-off all the little black plastic pieces (there about 30 of them around the perimeter and middle of the keyboard). What I did was to use tweezers to remove just the tops of the plastic pieces, so when I put back the new keyboard, the plastic guides were still there. After you put the new keyboard, I just taped and hot glued it to the case. Seems to work fine and the flex is minimal. However, the only problem is the replacement UX31 keyboard had very shallow key travel, so you need to get used to typing with it.

    • Next up is some housecleaning on the bottom of the display assembly. Away go the clutch cover, hinges, and wireless antennas.

    • The main and auxiliary wireless antennas hide underneath the plastic clutch cover on the display assembly, one of the few non-metallic surfaces on the exterior of the Zenbook.

    How did you remove the long plastic clutch cover? I’m having difficulty in getting it off and don’t want to break any plastic parts.

    Andreas Abrahamsson - 답글

    • Not only is there no obnoxiously glossy front glass on the Zenbook's display, but the bezel comes off pretty painlessly after applying some heat and playing a sweet tune with our guitar picks.

    • The fact that you can gain access to the display assembly is a huge plus. After opening up the Retina display, such a serviceable display is a welcome sight.

    • Not only is the fashionable display bezel easy to remove, it's even custom-made for the UX32VD.

    • Right as we were about to go ga-ga over the accessibility of this display, we had to catch ourselves. The LCD and camera cables are routed underneath the rubber display gasket.

    • In most cases, a simple piece of rubber wouldn't be much of a deterrent, but the corners of this gasket were stuck down with a formidable adhesive and required heat and patience to peel up.

    • After that, four Phillips screws come out, followed by the LCD.

    • We heard the Chimei Innolux 1920 x 1080 IPS LCD performs extremely well, bringing legitimate gaming chops to an ultra-portable 13" notebook.

    I had a little accident when the screen was open, and the hinges separated from the screen. It seems like the groove for the screws got messed up, because I can't screw them back in (they turn loosely and there is no grip). I'm guessing I need the part where the hinge screws go (seem on this pic). What is it called? I can't see it in any part site.

    • I can see you, and so can the Zenbook's 2 megapixel webcam.

    • A Realtek 5828T camera controller keeps all of your recording and video chatting in check.

    • In case you are wondering, the camera board is really thin. Without the components on it, it measures at ~ 0.3 mm, which is about the thickness of three pieces of paper stacked together.

    • Shown here for comparison is a US dime. That's right, folks, a dime.

    • Asus UX32VD Zenbook Repairability Score: 8 out of 10 (10 is the easiest to repair).

    • All the components are easy to access, with no proprietary screws inhibiting access.

    • The battery is not glued in place, and a person equipped with the right tools can replace it in a matter of minutes.

    • You can upgrade both RAM and hard drive in this machine.

    • Labeled motherboard sockets make reconnecting cables easier.

    • A lot of components were held in place with more adhesive than is necessary.

Just a few words to upgrading:

- Any 2,5" SSD will fit, if it has the 7mm height (e.g. Samsung 830)

- Ram: You need (!) DDR3-1600 Ram with CL11. If you have CL9 it will only run as PC-1333. That would be a waste.

Thanks sooo much for the effort. This is the best tear down of Asus Zenbook ever. Very clear. One things to add, when removing the back cover, beware of a void sticker that link the cover to its body. It might void the warranty. Not a big issue though (Simply want to contribute something here). I just bought this laptop a few days ago and I LOVE it so much!

Mine came with damaged ones, and ASUS took 3 months to replace.

It's out of warranty now, and the tears have grown considerably, and I just can't seem to find the part/how to replace this.

A few things to note:

1. This guide here also mostly applies to the UX32LN.

2. The thing that will give first is the headphone/mic jack, which I cannot find a spare part for. This is soon followed by the hinge, which has screw sockets held in place by a few brittle pieces of plastic, which naturally break off very easily, leaving you with a wobbly hinge. See that metal bracket with the two black screws in it and the hex socket screw a bit further on? Expect to only have the hex screw hold that thing on in the future, unless you have the stuff to do plastics repair work.

3. The case cover's Torx screw heads tend to wear out quite quickly, be careful when opening devices of this family up.

4. To clean out the keyboard, you have to pop the keycaps off. You cannot access where the dust, hair and skin flakes gather otherwise, as it's one sealed unit.

Everytime i dismount the computer it will work for like 2-5 days without problems, the strange thing is that its the same Keys that wount work, its 1-3-7-9-P-left shift, anyone have any clue about whats causing this problems ? I have tried to unplugg and put back keyboard plug, i also tried to unplug battery and hold down power button for x amount of minutes, and ive used compressed air on keyboard. Nothing seem to help. Sad because i love this computer.

BTW. if you have broken video chip (like it was on my case), or any other chip on motherboard, you can easily buy replacement motherboard and replace it yourself. Check my youtube video about MB replacement on Asus UX51VZ, which is pretty similar to this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJLl5DhY...

But I still have the same problem as before, there is some point on mb which makes laptop to turn off. I temporary fixed it by putting some insulation on the right down corner on Motherboard.

Where is the CMOS battery located in the UX32V?

Laptop hasn’t been powered up for a few years. Wont get past boot menu. Date doesn’t advance. Also internal battery won’t charge.
