I've already checked the jack in the laptop and the solder joints are good, pin's not damaged or anything. Occasionally my laptop will rapidly alternate between battery mode and external power. It'll do this for about 5-10 seconds and then everything's kosher.

I'm still using the original 150W power supply but just ordered a 180W since I've been wanting a second one for a while now, but have any of you with failed supplies had that as a symptom?

I never did quite get to the very bottom of this issue, but believe there is a possibility that the issue is software-related (atk driver?) if you want to check into this too.
