AC Adaptor input issues (fries cord, won't charge computer)

\015 I have an HP Laptop and have been through 3 AC adaptors. I'm starting to think the issue lies with my computer. When I plug in the Ac Adaptor it will work for a week or so and then the plug seems to get fried and I have to hold the cord in place in order to charge the computer. Sometimes I can hear an electric spark but thats rare. Could the input for the ac adaptor be fixed or does the computer need to be trashed? PLEASE HELP. Need this computer for school work.\015
