Acer Aspire 5050 power cord not working

\015 All of a sudden, after always working fine, my computer is no longer drawing power via the power cord. Do I need a new cord or could something else be the culprit?\015

Answers :

The connector inside the computer is broken .. I just fixed and acer the other day that had the same problem. I pugged a toshiba pwr chord into the acer that I knew worked and the connector was the same and no lights came so I knew it was something to do with the computer .. I suggest you try the same thing and if it is the connector inside the computer you should not pay over a hundered dollers to have it replaces Good Luck

It eventually would work when I retried plugging it in a few times, but now, it won't work at all.
