Question Laptop force restarts but only when plugged in and playing games?

My laptop has started to force restart but only when it's plugged in and playing games. It doesn't happen any other time I play a game with it unplugged an it works fine but after maybe 5-10 minutes of it being plugged in it just freezes and restarts.
