    Sounds to me like the charger connector inside the laptop is loose. That's a take it apart and solder job at the very least.

    Try laptop repairs limited, we normally have our repairs done from them pretty cheap, let me know and I can try and dig out a contact person name for you as well. Acer 0870 853 1001 would be too expensive so wont really recommend them

    thanks, yea i bought a new one off ebay, but cant fit it myself was just checkin if thts wats rong before paying to get it fixed. has this happend to anyone with an acer before

    i've seen quite a few acers with this fault. soldering sometimes works but as the board i muli-layered (not just top and bottom) sometimes you need specialist equipment to replace it. it will all depend on whether its a straight forward top and bottom solder or not.

    sometimes you don't even need to replace or resolder the connection. you can someimts just remove the battery and then using a needle file stretch the middle contact spring to improve the connection with the jack plug
