Right my laptop charger is not working, I have to twist it loads to get the battery to work. Am defiantly getting power but I have heard it will be the part you connect the charger to the laptop (the little hole in the back). So am wondering is it anyway I can fix this or if I take it to a shop will they be to fix it?

Are you sure it is not the connector that goes from the power supply into the computer? Often the cord can get bent too much, which causes the wires inside to break. If that is the case, you can replace the connector. If it is the connector in the machine, it can be done, but it depends on what you are willing to do and how good you are with soldering and taking a machine apart.

You might look in the connector on the machine and see if the metal looks clean, if not take the battery out and use contact cleaner. Also see if the metal tab looks to be out far enough to make a good contact, if not, again take the battery out, and slightly bend the metal. Looking at a known good one can give you an idea of what it should look like.
