power cord connection on Gateway M 6827

I have a two year old Gateway M 6827 w/ Windows Vista. Purchased from Office Depot. Persistent problem with power cords. They work fine for a few months, then will stop carrying charge. Laptop goes to battery mode, screen dims and cord icon disappears from battery icon. If I fiddle with the plug it will go back to charge mode. I do move unit aroung the house and do not use without power cord. I've purchased repalcement power bricks online and they work for awhile then won't charge. Now using a Targus w changable plugs. Again worked fine for a month or so, now I have to hang the cord over the screen for it to charge. Thinking there maybe somthing wrong with plug on laptop but then why is it fine for awhile. Any one have similar problems and/or solution?
