Ok I've been trying to do this on my own for about a month and I'm at a loss.  I have an asus u56e I bought from my brother.  When it's cold and not on a battery (ie I'm on the road in my car) it starts to load up then shuts down.  Then I power on again and it gets a little further then shuts down.  This goes on and on for several times till it stays on eventually.  
 
I have diagnosed the HD, mem86 tested it (though I heard it only does my "first" stick of ram, I have cleaned windows up, did sfc scan, check disk, updated bios/all drivers, etc everything I can think of.  This is a basically clean install of windows 7.
 
I don't know if you can check the motherboard for certain problems, but google hasn't been helpful.  Caveat, he did spill soda on the keyboard and I ordered one from ebay, got in and replaced it.  There was random stickiness in the computer though not terrible.  It runs great once warm or on a power source.  The power button is a little rough but I doubt that's it.
 
Gotten 41, 51 etc error codes.  Makes no sense I bring it home not on charger same power profile no restarts.  Even in a semi warm car or cold car always randomly rebooting.  IDK what to do.
 
I'm completely out of ideas.  Any help would be greatly appreciated

All the residue from the soda spill needs to be removed from inside the laptop.  It can cause corrosion and shorting.

 

There is a good article here on how to clean a laptop after a spill.

thanks bud I'll give it a run.  When adding new keyboard the hard keys on the touchpad were off and clicking, now they don't work.  I didn't touch it so not sure why as the touchpad and keyboard is seperate but obviously something is slightly off.  I'll give it a run,thanks for your response and update accordingly
