Default My AC adapter is melting

I have a compaq m2000 that is a year old. While under warranty, HP replaced the first power adapter because the wires split. The replacement worked intermittantly and then after a few weeeks it started getting really hot where it connects to the laptop. The pin/connector is now black and slightly melting. They've sent me another replacement and it's doing the same thing. Their tech support is a joke and I'd really hate to have to send in the laptop for repair. Also, I know there is a recall on some of the batteries for this model, but I checked and mine isn't included. Thoughts?

I don't think it's what you are looking for but I's say that Ulead photo express is a great option and pretty easy to use
