Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Power related issue certainly, sounds as though the charger may be suspect, but I'd need to know if you were running this on battery also.
The dimming of the screen could be down to a faulty backlight, but I have a feeling thet, given the issues you also decribe, that there is a problem with some of the capacitors on the motherboard, which are causing the power fluctuation. This is not good news if it is the case, as it means the motherboard needs to come out and be checked and maybe have new capacitors.
It could also man that there is a damaged or "dry joint" on one of the circuits that provide power to the laptop
