I'm not sure but check your alternator belt to see if it's loose.

If it's loose then it will be cool when starting up and could slip. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but if there isn't any power being generated by the belt for the alternator then it will be underpowered. In any event it's worth checking since if the belt snaps this can lead to further damage.
