Having problems with your Gateway MT6840 Notebook ?

I have a gateway MT6840. I am having charging problems.

\015 I have a gateway MT6840. I am having problems charging. I have bought several different chargers, that does not seem to be the problem. The problem is the part the charger plugs into (on the back of the notebook). I can tip my notebook back and apply pressure to the charger and sometimes it will charge. Does anyone know how to fix this probem or what it could be?\015
