    I had my Panda all setup ready a for a track car install, it has been sitting for a few months while I 3D print a surround etc but when I last used it it was running perfectly.

    Just plugged it in to put some new software on it and it gets to the Lattepanda display, it states at the bottom "Preparing automatic repair" and then quickly flashes something on the screen and shuts down.
    To catch what it says, I recorded it on my phone and played it back.
    In the top left corner it states
    "S5 Charging Disabled, shutting down"

    I have managed after numerous attempts to start it to get into the windows recovery but nothing I try will allow it to get past this S5 charging error.
    There are no issues with power as I have tried it on numerous other power adaptors that are all well over 2a capable.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as I would like to avoid trying to reinstall windows after spending hours setting up all the software on it.

    I have tried numerous power supplies and cables, including the original that it was running perfectly on before (a 2.5a USB charger)
    It will let me go into the windows repair and I can go through the menus to try a restart, reinstall windows etc and it stays stable, but as soon as it tries to load into windows I get this message flash up, the red light turns off and it just shuts down.
    I am going to build a power station from an ATX power supply as a last resort but just can't understand why it was fine before and now just shits down with this error.
    Whilst trying to find any issues that could be causing it I went into the bios a few times and I noticed something strange, the date is always different in the bios.
    Sometimes it says 2012, sometimes 2015 and once it showed 2017...does give any clues?
