Question about MSI M510C Notebook
I have an MSI M510C laptop computer with an ongoing issue of overheating the battery when recharging when the laptop is still powered up. Here's the scenario;
I charge up my battery overnight, it will then last about 2 1/2 hours. I get an indicator on screen saying I need to switch to alternate power. Fine, I plug in my AC adapter (I know it's the right one too PA-1650-02). Now, if I don't put my laptop in standby mode or shut it down it will begin overheating within about 1/2 hour and the yellow indicator flashes on the box. I lose so much time every day waiting for my silly laptop to recharge I'm about to throw it in the trash heap. Is there something wrong with the battery, the AC adapter or is this a normal condition for this type of laptop? I know the lithium batteries have a history of overheating, can they be replaced with something safer? Thank you!
I think these MSI a6200 are a piece of junk. It constantly overheats. I changed the fan but it still overheats just watching a youtube video too long.

It sounds to me like there may be a problem with the charging circuit which is usually on the mainboard.
I went to MSI but was unable to find any information that on that model.
I believe there are two solutions:
1. Contact MSI to see if there is a BIOS update to repair that problem.
2. If there is not BIOS update and the computer is still under warranty I would send it in to have the mainboard replaced.
