My HP laptop has something strange happening. When I turn off the laptop, the battery which is brand new, fully charges and I turn it on and the ac adaptor is plugged in. After about an hour or so suddenly the battery icon appears showing that the laptop is only powering off of the battery. I kept plugging the ac adaptor cord in and out and it would not make contact with the laptop. I went to comp usa, good guys, etc etc and had them test the AC adaptor and it worked, it didnt have any problem and it worked on other laptops. But when I plug it into mine it doesnt seem to want to charge the battery while the laptop is on, only when laptop is off. Its crazy I took it to good guys like four times and they said it was a problem with the connection area where ac adaptor plugs in and they took it apart and fixed it a bazillion times and said it works fine only for me to find out a month or two later it has the same problem.. has anyone had this happen before and is there anything I can do, I am fairly good with computers as long as i dont perform open surgery on them. I dont know if I should just go buy another adaptor, I just bought a brand new battery from HP for it.
