Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My computer keeps shutting off and it the battery

\015 My computer keeps shutting off (seems due to no power) and it the battery won't consistently charge.The problem slowly got worse (I could get it to charge by moving the cord). But now it won't turn on.\015

Answers :

The power jack is bad where the ac adapter plugs in.You may be able to tape it in the position that it does charge as a temporary fix.Other than that the power jack will either have to be replaced or resoldered.
I recommend taking it to a place like Office Depot, or your local expert, Office Depot is doing free checkups for back to school. Once diagnosed you should take it to your local shop as it will likely be a cheaper and better fix. But from the "moving the cable" portion of your post, I think the power socket on the laptop has come dislodged at one or more connection. A local shop will dust out the PC and resolder the connection to the main board for a nominal fee compared to purchasing a new laptop.
