Acer AN515-53 will not charge unless fully powered off.

This problem started earlier this morning. I woke up and started gaming with my laptop at 100% and plugged in. Later, I noticed that the battery was charging, and then not charging. This cycle repeated. The orange charging light also blinked. I have tried 3 different cables and the results are consistent.  I tried resetting my battery, doing the battery checkup in acer care center, and updating my drivers. I have also tried uninstalling and letting windows reinstall my battery drivers. I have been searching online and have not found a fix in the last 2 hours. Currently my laptop is dead and will only charge while powered off. If I get enough charge to turn it on, as soon as the acer logo appears the orange light starts blinking again.

    @MartinJohn00001 Respectfully my friend, if you read the questioners post he has already done a battery reset.

    @WhiteFire356 You have already performed the troubleshooting steps, you have established the Charger is good, you have updated the Battery drivers and performed a battery reset, all with no result. I suspect a bad battery, if you are under warranty contact Acer support link below

      Hi,sorry to hear it. Kindly try power drain by following the below steps.

    Power Drain

    *************

    1)Unplug the AC power adapter.

    2)Press and hold the Power button down until the unit goes off. 

    3)Search for a pinhole that has a battery symbol next to it on the backside of your laptop, insert a small paperclip in the battery reset pinhole, press and hold it down for 25 seconds. Then release the paperclip and try to turn on the unit and check.

     Kindly post your result!
