Radeon RX560x 4GB

yesterday my laptop started crashing instantly when running games using my dedicated graphics card. When I turned my computer back on to find out the problem, I then went into power options to see if something had changed, and ended up unplugging my computer which caused it to instantly power off and die. I plugged the A/C Adapter back in, and it would work again. I just ordered a new battery from Amazon for my laptop as I suspect it broke. The battery would stay at 96% while plugged in, and would still continue to die when unplugged. I have overclocked before.

Is my GPU broken too? Or does the A/C just not supply enough power to make it run?
