Laptop only charges when running programs or processes

Sep 20, 2018
The charging icon blinks on and off if im not running any programs like vlc or chrome. It started off as a random icon/LED blinking turning on and off and just goes away, but now its starting to demand more processes in the backround, im opening multiple
movies in vlc and playing videos in chrome at the same time to keep it steady but it could get more in the future and my cpu/ram couldnt handle it. Does anyone know what could be the problem?

Also my laptop doesnt charge when it is off and cant do AC power either.
