Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
From your description the jack that is on the motherboard has a bad connection. These can be replaced if you feel comfortable disassembling the laptop and have soldering experience. If you are sure you are getting the charge light to stay solid on for a couple of hours and the battery does not last after being charged your battery also needs to be replaced. It is not uncommon for them to only last 1.5 - 2yrs. If you have to pay someone to replace the jack and replace the battery you may want to purchase a new netbook as the battery alone will be aprox $100.00.
Please rate this solution if it has helped you.

Probably one of the weakest points in a laptop and one of the most common failures is the DC Power Jack that your adapter cord plugs into. Over time, a yank here, a tug there on the cord while plugged in can easily begin to dislodge the Power Jack. Once repaired, often the battery you thought was dead will charge again because the Power Jack is a direct link to the battery charger pins where it pops into the laptop.
I used to replace them myself, but now there are companies posting fixed price Auctions on eBay to replace only the Power Jack for around $50 plus maybe $20 for shipping. I have used several different companies there and all went smoothly.
Go to eBay and in the search box type in "Laptop DC Power Jack Repair" and you'll be able to work through shipping your laptop to one of them and having it come back just like new. If you don't use PayPal, seek one out that will accept a regular Credit/Debit card transaction and you'll be good to go. Figure 7 to 10 days turn around time.
