AC Adapter One day, my charger seemed to have simply become very touchy. It had to be in a particular angle just to charge my computer. After about a week of this, the whole thing ceased to work.

Difficulty charging i have an acer aspire 5570-2067 laptop, and I am having trouble getting it to charge. I already bought a new charger, but that didn't help. In order for it to turn on while plugged in, i have to wrap the charging cord around the key board and pull it tightly.I think something is wrong with the place where the charger is plugged into the computer.
I'm afraid this sounds like a bad/broken connection where the power input socket connects to the main system board, inside the laptop casing. It is probably repairable, but requires the laptop to be disassembled and the connection re-soldered.\ ... Acer Aspire 5570-2067 Notebook
