Lenovo Ideapad Y560D AC Adapter/Battery Problem

I am having problems with my AC adapter/Battery, whenever I am playing game my Y560D would go into battery mode even though my AC adapter is plugged in! I have to unplug the AC adpater then plug it in again to recharge the battery but for a minute or two the AC adapter would automatically disconnect as long as I have a game running! Since I have a Y530 too, so I use the AC adapter for my Y530 for my Y560D and the AC adapter wouldn't disconnect by itslef. Can anybody tell me what my problem is? And can I use my Y530 AC adapter for my Y560D? I notice there is a .5 difference in the output for the two AC adapter.

 

Thank you

 

System: Y560D with Core i7 Q720

BIOS Version: 30CN59WW

Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y560D AC Adapter/Battery Problem

first of all, avoid using another adapter with your pc, just use the battery its own.

let me clear this, whenever you plug the ac power, check the battery icon, and post the notifications.

is it "plugged in but not charging"?

It's plugged in but it uses only the battery! It only shows the battery icon without the small plug beside it when i am playing game.

Have you checked the Energy Management Settings to make sure you are set at High Performence when on AC Power?

Sounds like the power adaptor is defective.  Is it warm during peak usage or does it get excessively hot?

The link is working fine for me, you just need to copy and paste the link on a new tab. These two files are just screenshots of my laptop showing when i am playing game the laptop would use battery instead of ac power. The problem gets worse now, even for normal use when i plug in the ac power it will just use the ac power for a minute or less then switch back to battery.

i didn't say links not working, the site that you uploaded photos has been banned in my country.so i can't access files.

sounds like connector issue.make sure you connect the battery well

Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y560D AC Adapter/Battery Problem

Yes, it's connected well, the green light on the adapter is lit. Sometimes the laptop just doesnt use the ac power, i will have to uplug the adapter from the laptop and insert it again to use the ac power again. If i am lucky it will use the ac power for a whie, if not then then it will switch back to battery for less than a minute. So do you think it's the adapter problem or laptop problem?
