    Laptop is using battery power even when it is plugged in and fully charged.


    Hi guys,

    couple of months ago i bought a new gaming laptop that have a GTX1050 4gb graphic. But now a days I noticed that when i play heavy games like GTA V, Far cry 5, Resident evil 3 etc. my laptop is using battery power even I plugged in. When i do less power demanding tasks it just works fine but the gaming experience is not so ok because of the power issue. Give me some sollutions.

    :)

    Laptop is using battery power even when it is plugged in and fully charged.

    Plugged in but battery does not charge

    dlchina and freebooter asked, " when at home, if you remove the batteries, do the laptops power up when plugged in? " Yesterday they did not.

    Yesterday after I brought the notebooks home they were fully charged, I used them on the batteries and when I went to bed I plugged 2 into electrical outlets this morning they were fully charged, The one I am writing on is now 83% charged - it is plugged in an charging, another is fully charged. I just plugged the other one in an it is recharging.

    When I brought them to another location and plugged them in the battery icon said" Plugged in Charging" now it says Plugged in but they are charging. I wonder what happened yesterday?
