    So i have this old Asus laptop for about 4/5 years now, and the battery for it has already died 2-3 years ago. I am still using it untill now with the power brick only and sometimes it's turned off all of a sudden. Last time that I had the battery still works, when i play game (shadow of mordor) even when charging battery still decreased. Is it possible that my power brick require more voltage to equal my laptop's energy output?

    Remove the battery and see if it works with the brick only.

    You probably need a new battery. Does it turn off when the battery is not connected ?

    I think you don't understand my point, my battery is broken and i was wondering is my original power brick have voltage that are too low for my laptop(if used for hours) so the laptop ran out of power and died(?).

    Know that i need a new battery, but i couldn't afford it right now. My plans are to save my money and buy PC instead, cause i rarely use my laptop anywhere else than home.

    The power brick should be capable of running the laptop 24/7 if necessary.

    If the laptop turns itself of using just the power brick is the connector from it into the laptop a good tight fit ? If not it could be disconnecting momentarily to cause the shutdowns.

    So, you're telling that as long as my power brick have a tight fit and keep distributing charges to my laptop and still turning off then it's another questionable thing such as thermal and cpu/gpu error?

    Yes. If it's good tight fit there must be something else wrong or the charger itself could be faulty but that's unlikely in this particular case, they usually just stop working at all or the voltage can drop too low to power the laptop.

    If the computer turns off like you pulled the plug and yet it is still plugged in, it is overheating. That can cause a laptop to shut down immediately as if you disconnected it from power.

    Yes it felt really hot, I'm afraid that it's overheating, but i couldn't really tell the difference between running normally. It's hot either way.

    I'll see my laptop model after i got home
