  1. The slightest movement and my ac adopter stops charging. I have to unplug it from my laptop and plug it in again. It will continue to charge until I move the computer and than it will stop again

    Hi
    Thanks for replying
    Are you talking about the piece that solders to the mother board?
    I know very little and have read some about the connection being a piece that has to be soldered to the mother board
    My ac adapter, while plunged into the laptop, is not keeping a constant connection.

    I know it's common for the AC connection problems on laptops due to solder to m/b break
    I also know (at least in the US) i googled one time a couple years ago to look for repair shops in the US and they were charging $100-$150 to repair (including a 3yr warranty)

    don't know how easy or hard it is to do so yourself
