If your laptop works fine while plugged in but stops working while unplugged it's likely that either your laptop battery is bad or your laptop is not charging the battery properly.
Below are steps that can be taken to help identify the cause of this issue.
Leave power plugged in
Make sure the computer has been charging from the power plug for at least two hours before attempting to unplug it.
Remove and reconnect battery
In some situations the battery can become loose.
Removing it and then put it back into the laptop.
Use a third-party battery utility to determine the total capacity of the battery. For example, BatteryCare is a free software utility capable of doing this.
Replace battery or AC adapter
If your computer is still in warranty we suggest skipping to the next step.
If the above steps have been completed, we suggest replacing the battery in the computer or AC adapter.
In most situations it's a bad battery. some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
check all power and data leads from motherboard to hard drive and all of your cd/dvd drives make sure connections are secure dust free and not faulty
computers need all power and data to travel through every working device and to finish its cycle
so any faulty lead will end in computer error or shutdown or fail to boot
make sure your computers RAM modules are securely seated with no dust in the sockets also the Cmos battery has charge and seated with no dust in the sockets
hope this helps

test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive SATA
the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty
even something as small as faulty fan lead can cause you problems
computers need all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working
check the CPU central processing unit make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating
