I have had my laptop for nearly 3 years (ASUS G73). The actual battery on the laptop is pretty much dead, lasting only about a minute when charged. The original battery adapter I had for my unit had broken so I purchased a universal Nexxtech one which I run at the 19.5v setting. My issue is primarily when I am running games on my unit. At first there will be a flicker on the screen, showing the ac mode and then battery mode toggle (although the actual adapter is not falling out as this is something that only happens during gaming). Following it doing this for about 2 minutes, the screen will go black and then the unit will shut down. I ran a RealTemp 3.70 to see whether or not it was a heating issue. The temperature seems to reach about 78 degrees celsius when playing the game but says this is still about 25 degrees celscius from the TJMax. I am curious is anyone has a possible solution or idea as to what the problem is?
Thanks for your time!
