I have a problem with my Asus ROG GL552VW. Lately it started powering on by itself when I plug it in. It doesn’t happen when it stays plugged in, only when unplugged and then plugged in again. When it starts up the keyboard backlight is turned off even tho I always have it on and it didn’t turn off on its own before. Another thing that happens is when it powers on by itself like that the date and time is messed up. I think that the date/time when it was unplugged stays. When that happens I can only change the date manually, but if I restart it, when I turn off and on again the “set time automatically”, only then it gets fixed (but I have to restart the laptop first). I tried scanning for viruses with my antivirus and a few files came up and I deleted them but nothing fixed. Does anybody have any idea what the problem is and how I can fix it?

Thanks in advance.

The original battery is still working. It's removable and mostly isn't in the laptop. I use the original charger.
I will try updating the BIOS and tell you if it worked.

Is the original battery still installed?
Are you using the correct charger for it? (19 V DC, 6.32 A, 120 W )

update the BIOS to its latest version:

eventually replace the CMOS battery inside the laptop
I updated the BIOS and the laptop still powers on when plugged in, the backlight is turned off and the date/time is wrong but now the date and time changes when I deselect and select again the "set time automatically" option in settings (without restarting it).

I will take it to a repair shop to have it replaced since I've never changed it myself and I don't want to mess anything up. Thank you for your help!
