ASUS G50v Start-Up Issues

Hi everyone. Last month, my laptop turned off unexpectedly while I was using it. It refused to turn back on until I removed the battery for a few seconds and then reattached it.

Last night, it refused to boot beyond the ASUS "Republic of Gamers" symbol, and once again I had to remove my battery to get it to work.

Should I be concerned? Has anybody had this problem? I'm not sure if it's a battery issue or a hardware/software issue. The hard drive was new last August, so I really hope it's not that.

Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums,
I would personally suspect a battery issue from your description but I am kinda guessing since I have no experience with that model.
I did read that you can use that model without a battery if needed.
I did find this however which I think is a good thing to have bookmarked on a different computer - just in case
I couldn't find a whole lot about your issue specifically.
