Question about Dell Inspiron 9200 Notebook
My AC Adapter keeps going on and off. I have to move the cord around a lot before the light comes on in the adapter and the battery starts to charge. There seems to be no rhyme or reason as to how to position the cord in order to get the power flowing.
This happened to me as well. I did some research online and found that it is a common complaint for the AC adapters that come with these laptops. Basically, the wiring is very fragile, and the adapters only tend to last a year or two. Unfortunately, you will probably need to buy a new adapter.

Tips for a great answer:
This is only the first of many things you may need to do to determine the fault. But it is a process for determining the exact cause.
Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.
everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on,
follow these steps to complete a 'power reset' of the notebook.
