Solved I was following up on the Asus X55C no-post issue

May 26, 2016 at 08:50:04
Specs: Windows 7
I am a Technician and I am having the same issue, kind-of. There was no BIOS pass ever set on this thing. Coincidence or not, this one boots every 4th or 5th push of the power button. I power on, it starts and dies but keeps the Power light on if plugged in, or on battery, or both. So I have to force shutdown. Like I said, i do this 4 or 5 times and then can boot into the OS. I have a couple of directions to go.
Since it IS DEFINITELY power related, but not Hardware we have these options-
1.) Battery Driver.
2.) Battery Firmware
and last but not least
3.) BIOS FirmWare update.
I will try these, and attempt to re-post my findings. If none of these resolve it, it definitely has to do with the physical power path from power input to HDD Power Contacts.

✔ Best Answer
Yeah I know, problems aren't hard to come by, even different issues with similar scenarios. However, here http://www.computing.net/answers/ha... is the thread. The Fix I have too:
The Battery is Terminally Ill. Now, I do believe the battery's charging capacity regulator (whether it be firmware or a chip) has went bad which then caused motherboard issues due to fluctuating voltage. I come to this conclusion because #1.) The battery being caput fit's the issue. #.2) There are still issues cold booting even without the battery present in the platform.
