Hi there. I have an Aspire 5750. This has been a great laptop for me but over the past few weeks the power adapter connection has been really sketchy. The issue seems to be at the connection where it plugs into the computer itself. The power cord seems to come disconnected somehow frequently. If I unplug it from the laptop and then put the plug back in again, this fixes it for a few seconds, but then the power button light starts flashing and it's disconnected again.
I was hoping it was an issue with the adapter itself so I bought a replacement one but it isn't any better than the one that came with the laptop. Is this a common issue? I assume it's a problem with the connection inside the laptop where you put the plug in... but I'm off warranty and have no idea what to do to fix it. Do I need a new laptop?
(While I'm fairly decent with most software programs, hardware for me is a totally different ballgame! Any help would be appreciated!)
