Default laptop probelm with charger!

this never happned before.

i was on my laptop as useal and it stared to make a buzzing sound, i took the charger out and it stopped.
i put it back in and it made the buzzing sound, i left it for a while and put it back in and it was ok but after a hwile it just make this buzzing sound so i have to take it out. on some occasions it forced to shutdown my laptop.

but anyway. my laptop is fine its just when i charge it it sometme buzzes and i need to wiggle it into a certain position to make it stop.

sometime it works fine and the battery percantage goes up but it always doesnt go up no more.

do i need a new charger because i have not got enough to get a new one, i am just a student after all.

Could be that your power cord is broken somewhere and that buzzing you here are the wires rubbing against each other sparking. Inspect the cord and make sure it isn't torn, folded, or otherwise ****ed up anywhere.
