Charging issue on Lenovo G500s (Please help me....)

I had bought Lenovo G500s laptop around 2 years back.It was working fine till now.
Problem is whenever I start playing games on my laptop,charging light starts blinking red while still on charging.Does this mean there is some problem with the battery because it works fine normally but as soon as I do something that requires lot of CPU usage(load) it stops charging,battery status showing "Plugged in, not Charging".
I am putting some points:

 1. Should i I use my laptop in HIGH PERFORMANCE mode?
 2. Has it something to do with the Nvidia GPU because i tried to run the game on intel integrated graphics it was lagging but charging didn't stop.
 3. Is it due to internal heating of laptop that battery tries to save itself by not charging?(shall i use a cooling pad if that is the problem?)

I am providing the specs of my laptop:
Processor:Intel(R) Core (TM) i3-3120M CPU@2.50GHz
Nvidia GeForce 720M
Windows 8 64 bit
Please reply ASAP!!

What's DOS?
