So recently my MSI Wind u120 laptop started having problems charging. When I plug the charger in, I have to fiddle with the cord to get it to read the charger, and then when I do the yellow charge light just flashes repeatedly. It's making my computer think that I'm constantly pulling the charger in and out and doesn't charge as a result. When I put the computer on standby or turn it off, it will do the same thing, but sometimes I can get the light to stay solid and therefore charge the computer. It's really annoying and frustrating but I don't know what caused this problem.

Thanks for the help :thumbsup:

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

Sounds to me like you have a bad connector on your charger, this can be a broken wire just before the connector, in what is called the strain relief.

You could also have a problem with the socket that the power adapter plugs into on your laptop.

It could be loose where it solders to the controller board just inside the laptop case.

One thing to examine is the laptop socket, see if it appears loose.

If moving the wire near the strain relief causes intermittent results, you will know you have a broken wire in the power adapters plug which plugs into the laptop.
