Asus Laptop shuts off suddenly
I have this problem with my Asus S410U also referenced S14 in some websites. It has windows 10 64 bits with 8 Gb of RAM and only SSD disks
For two days now, it started shutting down as if it was suddenly unplugged. Then it wouldn’t start when trying to power it up.
At first I thought it was the battery that was discharged and thought I would charge it, plugging it didn’t charge it (the small led on the side didn’t light).
The only way that I managed to switch it on is by opening it up and disconnecting the battery (internal ), then if I reconnect the battery or plug the charger it works, but only for some time, then it shuts down without any notification with no time pattern)
This happens if the battery is connected or not, the charger is plugged or not, it doesn’t make any difference. I tried all possibilities.
I also have another installation of windows on another disk and tried it with no success. So it should not be software as the other windows in not up to date as I didn’t use it for a long time and it couldn’t be one of the latest windows updates.
I downloaded software to monitor CPU temperature (like CoreTemp https://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/) and it doesn’t reach higher than 55°C (approx 130 F)
I even tried to reset the CMOS battery, but I can’t find any on the motherboard!!!
I am confused as I can’t figure out what could possibly go wrong so suddenly.
Any idea could help
