    My brother's laptop has been having this problem, which started on Wednesday, where he can't connect to any game servers while the laptop is plugged in to charge. I don't know why this is happening. I clean installed Windows to see if maybe some bloatware could have been causing it, but the problem is still happening. I also updated the BIOS just to see if that would fix it, but it didn't. For example, in CSGO, while the laptop is plugged in, I could be searching for a game, but it just won't matchmake, but as soon as I take out the charger, it works normally. And sometimes while it is charging, it will sometimes find a game, but then it just kicks me out and says something is wrong with the game file (which I don't believe is the problem either since I literally clean installed the entire laptop). I've only tested this on CSGO, Fortnite, and Black Ops 2, but I'm pretty certain this is happening with any online game. Anyone have any ideas?
