Please, bare with me. I have very limited computer knowledge & no electrical knowledge.
I have a Compaq Armada Laptop that appears to have a bad connection. I've been getting a low battery warning, even when my laptop is plugged into an outlet. At first, I thought it may be the battery. Now, I've come to a different conclusion. It appears that my power cord isn't getting a good connection. This is causing the computer to run on the battery & eventually drain it, even though it should be getting electricity. This morning, I figured out that I could jiggle the connection & get the battery charging light to come on. That doesn't seem to work now though. Is there anything I can do to fix the problem? I would appreciate any help you can provide. TIA

ETA: I was able to manipulate the connection & get power coming into the computer again. It didn't last long though.
