So, in short, I don't trust them. I'd rather jam a screwdriver in my computer than go through sending it back again.

I have tried another known good HP power supply, and exactly the same thing happens. Sometimes, the front power supply connected indicator lights, sometimes it doesn't.
Sometimes, pulling the cord out and putting it back in --- or simply just touching it slightly --- is sufficient to get it to start charging again. Nothing is more frustrating than having this thing go dead with the cord plugged in!
I have taken the PC apart and tried to look at the connector --- but it is buried under part of the heat removal system for the processor, and I can;t really get at it. *But*, I am able to see that it is not loose.
I am not convinced that this is a mechanical problem, but acts more like a logic problem in the power/charging circuitry. I am at a loss regarding what to do...

It would be really helpful if anyone knows a possible fix for this, though, as I am scheduled to send it in to HP soon (my warranty runs out next week) and I would love to not have to deal with it.
Also, I have a Circuit City extended warranty on this thing. From my understanding of their rules, they'll fix it even if I broke it, but my warranty would then be "used up". Is this true or am I being too hopeful?
