Dell Inspiron 6400 charger not always working

I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop and the charger/lead is being really temperamental. I run my lap top off the charger all the time as it cannot work alone (which is fine) but recently i'l plug it in the socket and it wont work. It works in only about half the sockets in my house (the sockets work fine as other appliences work with no problems) i.e. it will be plugged in correctlyand turned on but there is no power oing to the computer and the green light on the charger will not come on.
Anything I can do or do i just need a new one?
Many thanks

U r very correect its the time for new 1 to be bought. u can get the new 1 from radio shack websites. and also dont try to use that faulty charger again as it can possibly blow the laptop electrical parts internally due to any over power short circuit.

Just to understand your problem your laptop is working properly when plugged directly to the power cord but not when running only on battery? Then it sounds like you need to replace the battery.
thank you,

I can't find the microphone function for our laptop( dell Inspiron E 1505) We are trying to use Skype and can't get the sound to work. Does this lap top have a mic? CD


No, you will have to use an external mic, you can get a USB mic/Webcam for about $20
