I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop. Recently my computer has started running on the battery even though it is plugged in to the power adaptor. If I fiddle with the adaptor it will begin running on power, but it is getting harder and harder to keep it off the battery. Do you think this would be an issue with my cord or the plug in the computer? I have read other forums that seem to indicate this is a problem with the 6000 and it is probably my computer connection and I would have to take it in to a repair shop. Does anyone know what the best course of action would be? It's getting frustrating. There are no frays or anything in the cord.

From what you are saying I believe the best course of action is to take it in and have it repaired. I would want to know if Dell is paying for it since it is a known problem.
Check into it as it would save you allot of money.
Good luck
