Question about Computers & Internet
The A/C adapter will not stay plugged in and I will have to move it around at the port of the computer to get power flowing in the to pc. (note. I don't more the a/c adapter or the plug at the wall, just the a/c to pc port.) I think something has just got old and needs to be changed but I am not sure on the exact source of the problem
You need to replace the dc jack. A local repair shop or someone from craigslist should be able to complete the repair for $100 and below. If you pay more you're getting ripped off. Also most shops don't carry all of the dc jacks in stock so I would make sure they order the jack first and then take your laptop in for service. That way you can still use it in the meantime. Just try to keep the wiggling to a minimum or else you'll damage your motherboad beyond repair.
