Question

Getting lag and fps dropped when charging toshiba satellite

hey there, here is my problem, so i bought a toshiba satellite c45-c4205k a few weeks ago, i got no time to test in game performance but i thought it were going to be ok, it weren't, when the battery is full charge i can play games normally (mostly dota 2) and i have 50-60 fps but when the battery gets low enough (after 2 hours gaming) i connect the ac and the fps drops to 5-10 and the laptop becomes really really lagged, even when surfing the web, i hope you guys can tell what to do, i found some help searching in google and i disabled 4 processors on device manager, that improved the problem, i was using windows 8.1, but then i upgraded to windows 10 and the problem comeback, help me please.
sorry for my bad english, is not my native language.
Laptop specs are:
Toshiba satellite c45-c4205k
dc19v 2.37a
ram 6 gb
intel core i5 5th generation
Intel Hd Graphics 5500

Sorry but no.

This is not a gaming laptop but you can help this along by not using it on battery power. Consider unplugging the battery if you must but here folk put such on AC then on a cooling pad to get by.

Only your new to laptops would buy an Intel graphics machine for gaming. It's just a bad idea.

its ok

thanks for answering mate, i just want to know why the game drop fps when charging ?, the laptop is not a game machine i know but i'm a casual player so its ok, but its so frustrating to play 2 games and then charge the battery to 100% to play 2 more games, if anyone knows why this happens please tell me, it would be very appreciated.
thx to all.

Most likely it's heat or pushing a limit here or there.

You are repeating a lot of prior conversations about speed and battery use. In short, ABC. Always Be Charging because the battery is only rated for 300 cycles and you want those cycles for when you can't get power. Today's machines manage battery life (literal, not running time) much better so I use ABC at work, home and travel.

The fix here was...

A laptop cooling pad. But I can't assure you this will fix it. What is more likely is to let it charge up and play while on AC.
