ThinkPad W541 weird behavior when plugged in AC

2016-10-28, 22:37 PM

Hello guys, 


For the last two weeks now my laptop has been making some bad BSODs.

When it's not plugged everything all right no problems at all, but when I want to use it while charging it it will take 1 or 2 minutes and crash. I need to charge it closed and then when it's full, deplug it and work, quite inefficient... Also, when it crashes it automaticly crashes when restarting as well, I need to "startup and repair"  and then restore if I want to be able to open it. What do you think guys ? Is it the battery, the PSU or anything else ?


It's 1 year old, I've put an SSD and a RAM stick in it, but it worked perfectly before these last 2 weeks.

I also purchased the bigger battery with it (this one:0C52864). Don't worry to ask if you think there is not enough information.
