My laptop will disconnect from its power cable as soon as I begin playing a more recently released video game. Older games do not seem to trigger this, however modern ones will. I have recently bought a new power cable, and during non-video gaming, the cable works just fine. No disconnections, no powering issues. But once I spin up a game, it immediately disconnects and begins drawing from the battery power resulting in lowered performance.
Any help is appreciated,
