I use a Dell inspiron , I have a crazy problem that technicians here fail to understand and blame any hardware to get my freaking money .
I play league and used to play on 60 FPS now it's 12 i dont use my battery since it's dead so the only power source is directly from the socket . The LED light is flashing orange , i'm suspecting a power consumption problem .Could that be it ? and if yes is it fixable ?

If the battery light is flashing orange then (if possible) remove the battery & run the laptop on mains only. It may be that it is detecting a low battery so is slowing things down.
Is the power adapter the original/OEM or a third party?

I'm using the original adapter and i've taken out the battery . Problem remains. Could it still somehow keep detecting low battery because of malfunction in power contact with the device?

If I may chime in here folks :)

Can i ask which orange LED it is that is flashing lilo22.

Download then run Speccy (free) and post the resultant url for us, details here, this will provide us with information about your computer hardware + any software that you have installed that may explain the present issue/s.

To publish a Speccy profile to the Web:

In Speccy, click File, and then click Publish Snapshot.

In the Publish Snapshot dialog box, click Yes to enable Speccy to proceed.

Speccy publishes the profile and displays a second Publish Snapshot. You can open the URL in your default browser, copy it to the clipboard, or close the dialog box.

Can I ask that you do not quote every reply, it really does not help any and just makes for unnecessary reading, thanks.

Yes it is possible.
Is the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery driver up to date?
Is there any dust inside the power socket &/or plug?
