Hi!

So I've had this problem for a week now. My laptop would stop charging if I play games like Sims 4 and Minecraft and would stop charging if I use Adobe Illustrator. So what I would do is, unplug and plug it again but what happens is that it would charge for a few seconds then not charge again. Then, I would unplug and plug again, then it repeats. And for the third time, it wouldn't charge at all. Then, I'l leave my laptop for a few hours, then it would charge normally but if I open any app mentioned above, it would repeat the problem. The apps I tested where this problem wouldn't occur was Google Chrome, MS Word etc. and Stardew Valley. Last night, I was just using Chrome, then the problem occured. Not it wouldnt charge at all. I tried some fixes said on the internet like reinstalling the battery drivers and graphics drivers but the problem still persists.

A little backstory from when this started is that I fell asleep while I left my laptop torrenting. Then when I woke up, the ac/dc adapter is unplugged and the laptop is off. I plugged it as usual and turned it on. I played Minecraft then after a few seconds my laptop wouldnt charge anymore. I left it to rest for a day, then when I used it again, it charged normally.

I've had this laptop for almost 5 years now. It's a pretty old Asus model and it's not high-end.
