Hi, this is the three laptop that I have owned that had the same problem. I sold the others "as is". My power plug-in wiggles around and the light on the screen goes off and on. It want hardly stay on at all at this point. I'm reasonably sure some connection has broken on the MB. If this is the problem, how do I get to it to fix it? Thanks very much.

It depends on the machine. Some of the power jacks can be soldiered back on - others require a new mobo...

This is a common problem with laptops if you aren't carefull with them. Couple little bumps on the cord while its plugged in will cause this.

You got that right. Now to figure out how to get to the mb.
Yeah, that is really the hard part. You might want to post the make and model-there are a number of guides around that tell you how to get there.

Sure, the laptop is a Acer Aspire 4520 and I would appreciate it if someone could help.
