Asus laptop windows 10 Battery/ on power icon keeps popping up in middle of the screen

I have an ASUS Q504u running windows 10, the icon keeps popping up on the screen saying its on battery and then on plugged in. I've checked the power supply and it doesn't appear to be intermittant. I have checked the power connection on the motherboard and the solder joints on it are solid so it appears to be some kind of windows 10 issue. I also tried uninstalling both drivers under the battery area in the devices section.

Dave, I'd still tend to suspect the power connections on the motherboard.  The copper used on PCBs is so thin now that a trace can be cracked and still appear perfect even under a magnifier.

In this situation I'd back up along the power trace about 2 cm, bare a spot on the trace carefully, then wire directly from the power inlet jack to the trace.  If this solves the issue, well and good.  If not, then you know that in future the power jack can't become a problem.

In addition to the above, also try just reinstalling the power management software.

To determine, it it's a software or hardware problem, start a different OS from a bootable stick (a live OS like Knoppix) and see if Knoppix reports the same. https://www.pendrivelinux.com/install-knoppix-6-to-a-usb-flash-drive-in-windows/ is a how to, in case you need it.
If knoppix does not show these changes, it's a software problem and we will continue from there. Else, it's a hardware problem and it should go to repair after eventually you try a different battery or power supply if available.

Let me add a better address for the download of knoppix, as the one in the instructions is outdated: http://mirrors.sonic.net/knoppix/
(else, instructions apply).
