Specs: Windows XP
My computer has started switching from ac power to computer power at random times (and this is getting more frequent). When I jiggle the ac power cord at the back of the computer to puts it back in ac operation. Could this be a software problem or something physical. (I changed power cords and this has made no difference. Thank for any help.

Most likely hardware problem could be damaged connection on the power input socket.
By computer do you mean computer or do you mean laptop?

Yeah most likely a faulty connection. If under warranty send it for repair. could just be a simple soldering job on the connection.

Thanks for input. That confirms my sense of the matter - and besides, I couldn't find any software tweaks that made any difference. So it's off to my local fix-it guy. Thanks again. Matt
