so recently while doing my school work I’ve noticed how fast my battery was dying, before lasted 14 hrs just on Microsoft then now 2 hrs after doing the same exact thing. I was like it’s dying too fast I was paranoid about that, then unexpectedly it blackout yesterday while at 46 percent, turned it on and it was at 1. I went to my cousin house for thanksgiving dinner came back and the power indicator was white meaning full charged. Next day wanted to play a game get out my laptop and it won’t turn on. I charged it again turned it on and it turned on just fine, removed the charger now it shuts down unexpectedly and blinks and orange color showing that it’s nearly dead, pretty sure it’s a battery issue. I opened up my laptop, cleaned it and still have the same issue even asked my dad still having the same issue, I had this laptop for not even more than a year, kinda embarrassing. I have an asus vivobook pls help

Did you create a battery report as suggested in the Chosen Solution below?

If so what did it show when you compared the Design Capacity value versus the Full Charge capacity value in the report?

For a good battery they should be nearly the same value.

Hi @uncler,

Does it happen when you connect the charger to power the laptop?

A blinking orange light means that the laptop is running on the battery and the battery power is less than 10%.

If the laptop has Win10 installed, create a Win10 battery report to check the status of the battery.

It may be failing and possibly will need replacing.

If you search online using the battery part number only, (0B110-00230400) you will get results for suppliers of the battery. Alternatively just search for Asus X550C battery.

Amber light flashes when charging or not. Battery seems in good shape . Charges ok. Does not run down quickly. Mostly I trickle charge and it stays well charged 80-95%. A few times I have forgotten to have charger on and the battery of course has run down but reconnecting the charger recovers the battery . Still blinking! I need more ideas.

Hi @uncler

So the battery report showed nothing wrong then?

Is the latest BIOS version installed?

Search online for the motherboard "board number schematics" to hopefully find the circuit diagrams.

To me it's looking like a board level problem.

Hopefully someone else may have some more ideas.

Hey Jayeff, I have the same problem. I installed the latest BIOS recently. Is that the problem?
