Power cable has connection problems
My Dell power cable started to randomly fail to supply power to the laptop. I suspected it was around the point of connection to the laptop because I could jiggle it around a bit and power would be restored.
It got so bad that I replaced the power cable with a cheap Chinese part from Amazon. This worked well for about 3 months and now has exactly the same problem.
Naively I would like to think I just need to make the fit better so it stays connected, but I'm not sure how I would do that.
Can someone advise a repair or a method to confirm the diagnosis of faulty connection and nothing more serious?
