Hi, I made an account here moments ago just to post this. So my laptop (Acer Aspire E5-571G-35QZ) whenever I start playing a game, it will start charging and discharging! It literally happened out of nowhere yesterday and I've been trying to fix this issue. I use an aftermarket transformer, it's those where you can change the voltage, I have it on 19 that's what my laptop needs and also the transformer is 100W...I have a break in the insulation on the power cable though...could that be the issue? I also tested running the laptop underload without the battery but it just shut off. Any answer will be appreciated :).

Yeah it turned out to be the charger, someone let me borrow their charger which was the same my laptop had and didn't had any issues! Thanks for the reply :).
