HP Intel Pentium Won’t Charge When In Use

HP 15 Intel Pentium Touchscreen

Hi. I plopped on my bed one day and broke the charger bit off into the port. I got it out without damaging the charger port. I have an extra charger from a HP Stream that I use for school. The Stream’s charger works fine and charges the Pentium when it’s off , but it won’t continue to charge when I turn the laptop on. So, since my battery drains fast (because I play sims alot) I have to keep it plugged in. I thought it didn't’ keep charging because the Watts were different since the stream is smaller.  So I went to Best Buy to get a universal charger only to find out it did the same thing. Are the chargers not carrying enough volts or what?? What can I do?
