Sounds like someone changed the power settings on it so that it slows down the processor when it is plugged in rather than the other way around. Check power management from the control panel.

The outlet you are useing might not be Grounded, use a power-strip that has a Serg-Protecter, they sell a Grounded outlet tester, it looks like a plug with lil red, and yellow rectangle lights on it and how to guild.,only a few bucks.

go on battery setting and check if your laptop goes onto a low performance mode when its plugged. should be able to get there through control panel or clicking the battery icon at the side of the icon tray
