Whenever i am playing any certain PC game ,my power plan is set on "High Performance".While playing,if i plug out my charger,the power plan shifts to either "Balanced" or to "Power Saver".This sometimes cause a crash in games if i switch from Game to windows.Moreover,when the power plan is switched,it overheats my Laptop.So,is their a way to set the power plan never to switch....?

A:Power Plan switching while playing game when charger is plugged in/out

1.Right click on battery icon
2.Click power options
3.Click "Change advanced power settings"
4.Select "high performance" from the drop down menu
5.Then go to Graphics Power Settings ( should be in last )
6.Click Powerplay Settings
7.Select "Maximize Performance" on battery column
8.Apply and OK !

So I apologize ahead of time if I'm breaking any noobish rules, I'm only slightly frantic here... Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!!

I own an Alienware m17x r4 that's about 3 years old. I was playing a game on it and it just suddenly turned itself off (had my headphones on and heard kind of a popping sound, dunno if relevant). I checked the cable because it comes out sometimes, but it was still plugged in, but the light on the cable where it plugs into the laptop itself was turned off.

I thought the cable connected to the power brick had come unplugged but that was okay too. I plugged the cable into a different outlet and the light came back on (it wasn't plugged into the laptop at this time) so I plugged it back into the laptop but the light immediately went out and nothing. I tried unplugging the outlet cable from the brick and plugging back in, but no dice. (did this a few times with light coming on but turning off when plugged into laptop.)

There's a button on the bottom of the laptop right by the battery that when pressed, five lights turn on. Just noticed this so I don't really know what it means; I'm assuming it tells me how charged the battery is. If so it's telling me the battery is fully charged then. Anyway, tried turning on without charger, nothing. Tried turning on without battery in and with charger plugged in, nothing.

I'm hoping that it's somehow both the battery and the charger are bad, but before the computer turned off in the middle ... Read more

Correct if pressed and released tells you what the charge is. If held down the amount of light that light up tell life of battery or something to that effect.






I read somewhere about a bad charger overloading something or other. Could this be possible? Also, my main concern is the things on my laptop. I can do without it for a few days or whatever as long as I know my stuff is still safely contained within. I guess I'm just looking for a little assurance here, Ha.



I have a power for one of mine that when it get to hot it cut off one it cools then back on. I do not think that is the concern here. The data is safe is stored on a hard drive (disclaimer unless the drive is going bad).

What I think is going on one of two maybe three things

1. Replace the power brick with a new one form Dell.
2. The board that is in the system that the power plugs into is bad.

hiYou need to adjust the power option & actions on low/critical battery.First, follow this route,Control Panel\Systems & security \Power OptionsORYou can open power options by clicking battery icon in your system tray bar (near clock) alsoIn Power Options Menu,click "Change Plan Settings".Then, click "Change Advanced Power Settings"There, first you have to first choose your active power option (High Performance,HP Recommended or Power Saver)below that tab, find and expand the group "Battery" and you should choose what you wish to do when the battery reaches low/critical level and how you want to define the low and critical levels.For example,if you don't like shutting down when the battery is low, you can choose either sleeping or hibernating and you can define your own limit of low and critical battery levels.You can change the display setting too to off/sleep. Just look, expand display group -- it'll be there in that list.Hope this helps, post back if it's not resolved..thanks,

Hello, I have a 3 yr old Ideapad Z510(that came with Win8)which worked absolutely fine until recently. If I plug in the charger when the laptop is on, it abruptly turns off and would never boot again until I remove the charger. However, this is not how it behaves every time. There are some rare instances where I could still operate the machine with charger plugged in.  When turned off, battery is charging and also goes to full 100%. When turned on(battery mode) it does not drain rapidly - I could still get a fairly decent stand up time. So I am assuming the battery is good. I don't see any thermal issues either. Things I tried:-------------- > Tried with a different charger - no help.> Updated the firmware - no help.> Update the entire driver pack - no help.> Applied windows patches, reinstalled and also upgraded windows to Win 10 - no help.> Reseated the battery and associated cables - no help.  I am not sure if there is anything that I could do to at least diagonize the problem before I give it to the service station. Any pointers on this is much appreciated   Thanks much in advance.

Hello, I have a question. My Lenovo Yoga 720 15.6" doesn't overheat, although I've noticed something rather odd. When I play Fifa 17 with the charger plugged in, the fans are very loud and the laptop gets pretty hot. When I play Fifa 17 on battery only (charger not plugged in) the fans are quite silent and the laptop doesn't get hot at all. Why is that? For all I know, I would expect the exact opposite...Thanks in advance!Kind regards,Tijs

A:Lenovo Yoga 720 15" : hot when playing games on charger, cool when playing games on battery???

The CPU runs at full speed when it is plugged in and runs more slowly on battery to save power.  Faster = more heat.

I have a Lenovo x201 laptop, It has been sent back for repairs from employee.At first, the fan seemed to be not working causing overheating. I then replaced the fan however the laptop kept shutting down as soon as sign in screen showed up.I think there is a FAN issue where it doesn't run because of low computer usage causing the laptop to crash.I have found a workaround which is a weird way.So if I REMOVE the battery from the back and PLUG in the adapter, the laptop works just fine. I have to care to not unplug the cord accidentally. When I start the laptop + signin everything works fine, and I can hear the fan spinning where before, when the battery was plugged in, It used to idle causing a crash.Now if I put the battery back in. WHILE it is PLUGGED IN and on desktop screen, it SHUTS OFF in a matter of seconds.I concluded that the BATTERY causes the FAN to IDLE which in turn shuts the LAPTOP off because it is thinking the FAN is FAULTY.Now I am on a domain at the moment, so I cannot download a CPU Fan Management Program to keep the fan at a steady X%.ANY IDEAS ? Thanks in advance. Meghz

So as the title says i was playing Diablo 3 and my computer randomly turned off. I had no idea why as i was always able to run the game perfectly and my system does meet the system requirements. I cleaned my fan on my computer of dust to stop it from overheating if that was the problem but it still shut off within about half an hour of my playing.

I have no idea why its doing this. I have been playing this game for about a month and never had this issue. My system meets the requirements and i have no other issues with the game. Does anyone know what the problem is here? I am thinking its something to do with overheating but it makes no sense to me.

A:Sims 2 screen turns blue whilst playing then game crashes

Quite likely it's your graphics card that's gone a little awry.

What model graphics card do you have?

To find out,

A) Right click on My Computer on your desktop

B) Click on Properties

C) Go to the Hardware tab in the properties menu

D) Click on Device Manager button

E) Expand the menu in Device Manager labelled Display Adapters

F) Note the model of graphics card that is listed there.

OR

There's a more detailed method of looking up graphics card information.

Go to Start>All Programs>EA GAMES>The Sims 2

And then click on 'Easy Info'. That little program was developed by EA and should give you lots of information about your system, as well as the model of your graphics card, how much memory it uses, what driver version is installed, etc. etc.

Take a screenshot of the resulting information from EasyInfo or copy and paste the information into a Notepad document and upload to this thread if you like.

Hope this helps,

Kovi

This problem has happened twice already in a span of about two weeks. I was playing Dota 2 when suddenly the whole screen freezes. The strange part was that my cursor was still working, but nothing was responding when I clicked. I tried the Ctrl+Alt+Delete to get to my task manager, however it send me to a black screen. The cursor still changes to that hand with the pointer finger up when I place it near the region where the options are supposed to be. I clicked the last one which I believe is the task manager option, and then it sends me back to the game with the game cursor but this time with a black screen.  I really want this problem fixed  

A:Lenovo Y700 freezes while playing game

Problem (most probable) - Your Display drivers are crashing.
 
This problem is quite common in PC games and few tips to avoid this are -
 
1) Install a Stable GPU driver. Hint - The latest drivers are usually not the most stable ones.
2) Always perform a Clean installation for the GPU drivers.
NVIDIA already gives an option for a CLEAN INSTALL. If you have AMD, unistall everything related to AMD/Catalyst Control Center and then install the stable drivers.
3) Reduce the graphics quality of the game, sometimes running at max or too high graphics can cause crashes.
4) Keep a check on CPU and GPU heat. If your GPU is heating up too much, it will freeze and crash.  You can use CPU HWMonitor or GPU-z to monitor the stats.
 
Let me know and I can provide details on some of those topics. Thanks.
(I am planning to create a video on this, so hopefully in 2-3 weeks I should have something. You can follow me on youtube if you want - Rockykoston).

Hi Lenovo community, I have lenovo Y50-70 gaming laptop, used to heat up a lot while charging near the W S A D keys and the left palm rest. One evening while the laptop was turned on doing nothing intensive like gaming. It starts smoking up from one of the vents and shuts itself down, shocked by the situation I immediately unplugged the laptop.  Long story short, gave it a rest of 1 day, it turned ON on battery just fine, feels like nothing has heppened but no more charging! if I try to plug charger in laptop again, it start to smell. Upon closer inspection: ?? It has burnt 2 mosfets, a fused and some other things. Never in my past 15+ years using a computer I ever encountered a burning laptop motherboard.  Did anyone else face the similar situation? I guess I'd try with warranty since its been only 4-5 months (if lenovo won't sees opening the back case as violation of some sort).

Hi to all seven forum,
I came here for a simple question today, the question is, is it better for laptop battery that when I using laptop it is plugged in all time to ac adopter although it is fully charged.
one thing I know that when plugged in charger, the battery not in use, I test that remove battery when laptop in ON condition and AC charger is plugged, the laptop remain ON, so I mad a personal experience that using laptop with plugged in charger, it could save the battery. is it rite.?
Note: that I m not plugged in charger all the time, I only plugged in it when I turn ON laptop. when laptop is not in use and the battery is fully charged (infect it is always charged) I plugged out the AC adopter.
I read many article where many peoples asked the same thing that "should they plugged in charger all the time, (include when laptop not in using)".
but my question is simple which is "should I plugged in charger all time only when I use laptop? is it better for battery.? or it must necessary that we should drain all battery then plugged in charger and remove it when fully charged.?
(sorry for my bad English)
laptop model is Dell Inspiron N4050. 6 cell Li on batter I think. (or lithium)

A:Should I plugged in charger to laptop when I using it.

I'm amazed that this gets asked so often, and I haven't been able to figure out why. There's no reason and no harm in leaving the battery connected all the time. There's no reason to unplug the AC power once it is full charged. In fact, doing so could potentially shorten the life of your battery if it's recharging from a small usage up to 100% often.

I still don't know why people insist on making this a difficult process, to be honest. If you use the laptop on AC power, great. If you use your battery often, or even occasionally, it's a good idea to drain it down completely every so often, and then recharge it back to 100%. There's no harm in using the laptop on AC power with the battery in the laptop.

My charger is fine, and does recharge my computer. I've tried 2 different chargers, both with same results. The problem persists which leads me to believe it's a problem with my computer. I plug in my charger, and then sometimes it begins flickering between charging and not charging. Sometimes there is a 5 second interval before it changes, sometimes it's every second.

This really downs the performance of my PC, especially when playing games, as it lags and stutters while it keeps flickering.
It seems to be tied to my RAM usage, and then again sometimes not. If I make no actions on the PC, it stops after a while. If i proceeds to open google, it begins to swap on and off like crazy. After a while, it stops again. If it doesn't begin flickering, I can open a game, which will then trigger it somehow. However, some days I can take as many actions as I'd like, use as much RAM as I want, having 20+ programs running and nothing happens at all. Sometimes the problem persists even after letting my labtop shut down for hours, and when I turn it on it begins again. Some days it just doesn't appear, and everything works as intended.

It also seems to have a "cooldown". If it flickers, I can most of the time stop taking actions and it will stop after a while. If i keep on not doing anything, I can after some time open a game and run it with no problems, however it will after some time begin to flicker between charging and not charging again.

How can I fix my hp? My laptop won't turn on unless it's plugged into the charger.  When I first got it was working fine but I can't remeber when it started needing me to plug in the charger for it to work. Even if it's full battery it still won't turn on unless I plug it in. Do you think I need to buy a new charger or re set it?

Hi all, i have a Medion MIM2320, MD96654 and all of a sudden it turned off and smoke came out of near where the charger is plugged in so i took the charger out and it stopped smoking, i was able to turn the laptop on again with no problems, but now the battery is dead.

The smoke was an orangey colour and had a funny smell.

Sorry for my basic description but any thought would be appreciated

Thanks

Eoin
 

A:Laptop smokes when charger is plugged in

Sounds like the charging circuit is Up In Smoke, you will need to take it to a reputable Laptop repair center or Buy a new laptop.

I would not continue to use it, it may be a fire hazard, burn the house down.

I OWNED A TOSHIBA SATELLITE C655-S5128

while using last week charger stopped working
i fixed charger plugged it in- no amber light or green

toshiba laptop when charger/ ac plugged in
computer will work fine on ac power
when charger plugged in computer detects charger and shows the icon on the battery icon
computer detects battery and how much of a charge it has
but it states charger plugged in but not charging
the ONLY WAY I CAN GET CHARGER TO WORK AND CHARGE IS TO TAKE THE BATTERY OUT AND PUT BACK IN
COMPUTER WAL LAH CHARGER WORKS AND CHARGES BUT ONLY TO 97 PERCENT FULLY CHARGED LIGHT (GREEN) DOESN'T COME ON

CAN ANYONE GIVE ME A CLUE TO WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY COMPUTER
&
WHAT DOES TAKING OUT A BATTERY AND PUTTING IT BACK IN DO THAT MAKES MY CHARGER WORK I HAVE LOOKED AND LOOKED FOR A EXPLANATION TO NO AVAIL & THERE IS NO COMPUTER PLACE THAT WILL HELP YOU WHEN YOU HAVE NO INCOME THAT IS MONEY
THANK YOU FOR ANY INFO YOU CAN OFFER~BMS

 

A:Charger plugged in, not charging toshiba

If you take out the battery when the computer is totally shut down, and plug in the AC adapter and start the computer, does the light on the charger come on, some are green, some not....

And, does the computer work normally if you are using just the AC adapter?

I would not use a battery that charged only to anything but 100% and here is why> overheating can result and cause a fire, I have had one laptop battery explode and it is not a pretty scene.

The AC adapter might also be damaged, but just answer the questions and will try to help further. I buy this type of Toshiba adapter all the time, and can point you to some reliable but not over expensive ones.

Is it ok to leave a laptop charger and a phone/tablet charger plugged in to the electrical outlet when not in use? Or is there a risk of a problem happening if I do that?

Thanks.

The issue I am having with my laptop is that whenever the charger is plugged in or out, the screen goes black/blank then comes back on. This is known to happen when a hdmi cable is plugged in, but is not supposed to happen when the charger is plugged in. I only started experiencing this problem since today and I am wonder if it is because i had started to display by screen on a tv via a hdmi cable. normally when i do this, i set the screen settings to second screen only, and when I am done, I revert to duplicate screen, then i remove the hdmi cable. I am worried that I have done something wrong. I already removed the battery and put it back in, but I am still experiencing the problem. Can someone please elp me out, thank you.

I have a Vista Laptop that is not charging at times. The power jack it pushed in and both my chargers spark when I move the plug around so it could charge. I don?t know if it?s my laptop or the Charger. Should I get the power jack fixed, get a new battery or a new charger? Please Help!!

A:Laptop charger plugged in but not charging

Esmmy, look in the hole on your laptop where the power adapter would plug in and you'll see the silver power pin. Using a push button pen, put it on the end of the power pin and see if you can move the pin at all. Any movement on that pin means it's broken and the DC Jack needs to be replaced. Most DC Jacks are soldered to the motherboard and need to be repaired by someone experienced in desoldering and soldering.

If the DC Jack is broken, the power adapter won't charge your battery since it's not making a solid connection inside. Moving it around too much while plugged in could short something, cause further damage or even a fire.. Best to have it repaired by an experienced technician.
