I broke like 4 different chargers on my old laptop too. Is there anything care wise I could be doing that I might of been neglecting

obviously, you're hell on cords.
Just don't use your laptop while it's plugged in.

Why not, what's the problem with that?
>>
>>16585808
My graphics card only works properly when my laptop is plugged in because the battery can't safely supply it with enough power to work properly

But using it while its plugged in doesn't break it. Tugging and abusing it does.

and if you had to guess what OP is doing while most tugging and abusing takes place you'd guess...

I think it is safe to say get a better fucking laptop, if it can't even run without being plugged in might well get a desktop

You'd be surprised how many laptops are like that desu.

Except if he's using it for games he's literally going to be playing for an hour at a time.

Fun

He either bought a custom laptop and cheaped out on the battery or doesn't have the performance settings configured properly.

No pre-built laptop is going to come with a battery that can't handle the graphics card
>>
>>16585853
>>16585885
Maybe if he peeked inside his graphics drivers control panel...
>>
>>16585917
That could be it. However that being said, upon further research it is very possible the graphics card cannot safely operate to its full potential while on battery. Happens all the time in gaming laptops
>>
>>16585946
I never owned a gaming laptop but every one I had allowed me to change GPU settings between 'performance' and 'battery life' when running on battery. All of them used CPU scaling automagically.

>graphics card cannot safely operate to its full potential while on battery
Running on battery magically makes them heat up more than when the lappy is plugged in?
