    Try changing Control Panel power plan from performance to balanced mode. Then BEFORE starting heavy gaming loads, battery should be near 100% charged and charger plugged in. Jack E/NJ

    Change your Control Panel balanced power plan so it looks like below. Also click 'change settings that are currently unavailable' in Control Panel power button app. Scroll down and uncheck the box for fast startup to disable fast boot. Jack E/NJ
