I HAVE A LAPTOP THAT I BOUGHT IT NEW IN 2004. I'VE ALWAYS USED IT WITH THE POWER CORD WITH NO PROBLEMS BECAUSE I KEPT IT IN ONE PLACE. HOWEVER, THE LAST SIX MONTHS I'VE BEEN MOVING MY LAPTOP CONSTANTLY AND I'AM STILL USING THE POWER CORD. HERE IS WHERE MY PROBLEM BEGAN, NOW SOMETIMES MY COMPUTER TURNS ITSELF OFF LIKE IF THERE WAS NO POWER CORD CONNECTED TO IT. SOMETIMES IF I MOVE THE POWER CORD AROUND IT SEEMS LIKE IT MAKES CONTACT WITH COMPUTER AND IT STARS WORKING AGAIN BUT AS SOON AS I MOVE THE COMPUTER IT LOSES POWER AGAIN. IF SOMEONE PLEASE HELP TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM , THANK YOU, SINCERELY , ROD

It sounds like the plug in the back of the case is loose - if so, take it to a computer repair shop to see if they can fix it. If it's covered under a warranty, have them fix it under the warranty. Warranty repairs generally will cost several hundred (or more) dollars (they'll replace the motherboard) - the actual repair itself is usually under $100 (for the part and a bit of soldering). I understand that Dells are more difficult to repair than other laptops due to the construction of the motherboard and the manner of affixing the plug to it.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
