Laptop switches off if charging from mains

  Toffeeapple 21:43 25 Sep 2007

My laptop won't charge from the mains power. If the laptop is on and I plug in the charger, the laptop switches off after about a minute.

I am currently having to switch off my laptop to charge it and I therefore am limited to about 3 hours before I have to shut down to recharge.

Can anyone help please?

I think the charger socket on the laptop may have become worn with use. Take the battery out and run on the charger. If you then gently move the charger plug, you may find the laptop will shut down.
