[1st, forgive me if I posted in the wrong section of the forum]

My AC Charger keeps disconnecting whenever I play games.
Games I tried and faced that issue:
- NFS Rivals
- Crysis 3
- Battlefield 4
- PES 2015
- NFS Hot Pursuit (2010)
All settings on Low with 1280x720 (over 35 Fps).
System config:
- Aspire E1-570G
- i3-3217U
- 8GB RAM
- GeForce GT740M - 2048MB (64Bit Edition, No OC).
- Windows 8.1 Pro x64
To clarify, the AC Charger release when I'm playing those games, I need to physically disconnect and reconnect it again, after 30 seconds, it release it again.
But when I'm not playing games it's all OK.
Is something wrong with my Charger ?
(Enjoy my funny english btw).

It's possible that you're drawing more power than the charger can supply and it's tripping some internal breaker/overload interrupter within the charger, which is in my opinion a failure of design.

Oh seriously ???
Does that mean I'm being forced to game with Battery ???



Ok,
Let me try to explain further more:
- If I remove battery (I did it with all my Laptops to extend their batteries life) and begin playing games, after 3 minutes of Gameplay, the Computer shuts down itself because NO BATTERY and the POWER CORD has been somehow disconnected.
- If I plug in the charger and then put the battery (let's suppose it then begin charging) and then begin playing a game, the Ac Charger will then be disconnected and I will be gaming on the battery. It's easy to guess because the Battery stops charging and no charger icon near it. (I press ALT+Enter to see the taskbar). Plus current power plan changes if charger gets disconnected.
I'm really confused, the charger doesn't seem to be an orginal one because I bought an already used laptop and the charger doesn't really look like the one I saw on YouTube Videos Reviewing the Laptop.

How do I check "current (Amps)" ?
Is it the "Output" voltage for example ?

It will be on the label that is stuck onto the charger and will be in A or mA. and will be under output current or power.

Thanks!
I can confirm it's due to the wrong Charger he gave me.
I tried with a friend's Charger (a Packard Bell Laptop Charger), it had the same things wrote on the label as mine. I plugged it in and tested my games, no more disconnection.
I'm currently low on budget, I will buy a new charger asap.
Thank you all for your support.

I have new laptop (bought it 4 months ago) and that shit started happening like a week ago. Does it mean that my charger broke?
