    Helios 300 models do not come with user-removable battery. They are fixed inside the case, and needs some level of expertise in opening laptops.

    There would be a battery reset keyhole. Try that and see if that helps.

    Ankitv if your model its not a 2019 follow all steps here  uninstall the acpi driver (if you can get into windows even on safe mode)  disconnect from AC press/hold the battery pinhole switch for 30s+ leave it to rest 2/3h to completely drain any power left in the capacitors then boot into bios (if youre able to) and reset setup to defaults boot into windows check if the issue persists if you model its a 2019 you wont have a battery pinhole follow the same steps but by pressing the power button instead following the same steps you could also while its off to check if the power kill switch by the ram its properly pressed (some models also do not have it) and add some layers of electrical tape to the bit of rubber/foam that presses it down to make sure its properly pressed and also remove the ram check if the pins are cleaned and insert it back (all this while you are waiting for everything to discharge not before)

    I did the battery drain process...but I can't get into bios because the laptop doesn't even boot up...the led stays for 4-5 secs and goes off
