No obvious shorts on the board

I was able to get the machine booting again at least for now.

However, with the board alone on the bench I was getting 20V. Now I'm stuck at 5V @ 0.4a. Additionally with the new battery connected I'm stuck at 5V @ 0.4-0.6a also but the machine is booting into the OS off the batteries charge.

When I boot into the OS. At the login screen it's asking for username AND password instead of just the password.
After I enter the username and password the system attempts to login in but the instantly shuts down after attempting to load.
