Laptop slow when plugged in and stutters a lot.

Hi, my laptop slows down a lot when it's plugged in and stutters on games it should easily be able to play. The rated charger for it is 45w, I am currently using a 65w charger and still the same issue. I've tried everything but to no use. My brother has the exact same type of laptop but doesn't have any issues. I'm pretty sure it's a software-related issue. Everything is up to date. Thanks.

There's no reason to use a higher wattage charger. Doesn't get you and benefits. I'd look for a heating issue as that will cause the CPU to throttle down. Would also be helpful to post machine specs.

CPU, RAM, GPU and storage type.

Hi, thank's for responding. My CPU is an i5 8th gen, I have 8 gbs of ram and I believe a 256 gb SSD. The only heating issue I could think of would be dust. Why would it only slow down if it's a heating issue when plugged in though?
