Hi, I purchased a Windows 7 ASUS K53E laptop in early November 2011. The laptop always charged right and worked fine until about a year later, in early December 2012. All of a sudden, I would plug the charger in like I always did, but the charging light would flicker on and off. It takes pressure and force to make it charge, which can only be done if I hold the cord in the charger port and apply lots of pressure with my hand. I know this isn't a problem with the charger because I've tried several different chargers and the results are the same for all of them. I've been dealing with this for months now, but I'm at my wit's end. Can anybody tell me how to fix this WITHOUT me having to buy a new laptop? Note: I've researched it, and a lot of other people have had this problem with ASUS laptops, particularly this model.
