Hello there, I own a Dell Inspiron 7537 laptop. So, I am facing some weird problem where my laptop shuts down when starting any game. This happens only while I have it plugged in. On battery, it runs completely fine. It's not a software problem cause I reinstalled all driver and os completely.

You may be experiencing a power surge when the GPU goes under load while plugged in. Try changing the outlet your laptop is plugged into to one on the other side of your home.

Update on the problem: Seems like the problem still persists even after changing the outlet only minor difference being I can play the game for about less than a minute, then it shuts down automatically. The BSOD error was just the driver problem which I sorted out already but I can't find the reason behind this unexpected shutdown. Another thing I forgot to mention. is that my battery get temporarily disable after the first unexpected shutdown and then I have to reinsert the battery again to enable it. And no it's not the battery problem because I already got the replacement a months ago.
