Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-4421 Laptop
I assume it's working intermittently?
What you can try first is to wiggle/bend the cord at approximately 1 inch intervals, while observing the power indicator on your computer. If you find a spot where it flashes; chances are it's shorting out or broken there. But perhaps the easiest way would be to try it with a known 'good' cord, and/or try your cord on another computer.
If the good cord works with yours; it's the cord.
If the good cord doesn't work; it's the jack.
If your cord does the same on the other computer; it's the cord.
If your cord works fine on the other computer; it's the jack.
Unless you've been rough on your computer the cord is the most likely culprit. As that's typically the most abused piece of equipment. I've gone through three of them with my HP. The good news is they're relatively easy/cheap to replace. You can usually find them fairly cheap at your favorite online discount store.
One thing to note: if your computer keeps running just fine but the battery isn't charging; it could be the battery.

The laptop might still be under warranty, if you don't have that choice then you need to go to a computer repair store where they can sub your power supply with a universal one to find out which problem you have, and they may not even charge you, but this is a quick sure fire method and you can decide which way to go.
