Recently my adapter has been very erratic in its ability to charge the battery or let the computer run off the AC power, even though the first two lights are green. Sometimes when I plug in the cord and put tension on it, the orange light comes on (I've even tied it with a string to a chair to keep the tension so I can continue letting it charge for me) to charge the battery, but rarely does this work. This never was a problem up at school, and it seems only to be happening now, but I believe it's coincidental. Seems like there's a bit of wiggle room where I plug it in, although I'm not sure this wasn't intended since it was very rarely unplugged at school. Is this a common problem? There's a carry-in service right in my town, and I'm going back to school on Monday and would like to have this resolved a few days before then. Anyone happen to know how long this typically takes (battery issue potentially)? Any help is appreciated.
