I have a Dell Inspiron 6000. I thought my first power cord wouldn't stay plugged into the computer because adapter was slightly damaged. Bought a new on 6monthes ago but now the new one (IGO AC Power Adapter) is also always coming loose or falling out of the socket in the computer. I googled the problem to see if there was a way to make it stay in and found this is a common problem with Dell laptops. What I didn't find was a quick solution. Anyone have a suggestion?
The battery also never fully charges. I assumed it just needed to be replaced but maybe the problem is related.

The jack inside the computer needs replaced
Don't go to Geek Squad. Try the smaller locally-owned repair shop
