My Toshiba satellite laptop wont charge while gaming. The charging light blinks while I run a game while charging.The laptop charge and discharge as the light blinks. My laptop has nvdia 710 graphics card.
 

That's a good question.

If it is the original OEM charger for your model, then it sounds like the power brick is failing. Try another outlet, and if the same problem occurs, you may need to replace the charger. On the off chance this continues happening, you may have a problem with the laptop's DC jack or main board.

Ya..its the orginal. I disabled the nvidia card and the charging is fine. I guess my charger output has reduced. I'll try with another one.

 


Just make sure the new adapter is rated at least the same output wattage as the original, or you may be stuck in the same boat. :D

The problem was with the charger. I tested with a multimeter and the output is low. So while gaming when the nvdia card switch on.... as a result the laptop consumes more power and the chager was not able to provide the required amount.
Thanks for all the replies. :D
