Hey, my computer problem is, my power cord doesn't fit in the computer outlet as good as it should, so I decided to put some tape inside the outlet so it fits. When it didn't fit it used to fall out and then my computer would loose charge and then will turn off and not turn back on? So now my computer won't turn back on because theres probably some tape stuck in the outlet or power cord tip? My ques is how do I clean the power cord tip or computer power outlet?

A new outlet? How do I do that and how much do you think it will cost?

A new outlet costs around 2 dollars. They only take a few minutes to change. If you don't know what you're doing, don't try it yourself.

You know I am talking about a new outlet on my computer, not my wall?

The outlet in your computer is built into the power supply. You would have to buy a new power supply
If it's just the computer power cord, you can get a replacement
