Laptop suddenly shuts down while working and power button light amd charging light blinks

HP Recommended
HP Elitebook 840 g1
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Last night while working my laptop suddenly  shut down. I was working on photoshop and several tabs were open in windows edge

My battery is problematic  so i removed it and use AC adapter. When laptop suddenly  shut down, three lights repeatedly started blinking (power button light,charging light the orange one,and another light besides the orange light) as long as the AC adapter  is plugged  in


After resting  for a while i can again turn on my laptop,but it again shut down after a while.

I did a hard reset, cleaned my ram,even made sure that the ram usage is minimum.Uninstalled all the ram draining app


But it didn’t  work..
