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.
