Arrow Dell Inspiron Laptop Charger Not Working

(I'm guessing this is the most appropriate forum for this thread?)

I own a Dell Inspiron and recently I have had trouble with my charger working when plugged into most wall sockets. There's a couple wall sockets in my house where the charger works fine, but it fails to turn on when plugged into the majority of them. I know there is nothing wrong with the wall sockets because when I plug other electronic devices into them, they work perfectly fine. I also think its strange that the charger will work when plugged into some outlets but not others. I called Dell and the woman on the other line had extreme difficulty comprehending that there is no problem with my wall sockets and instead spent most of the call trying to persuade me to purchase another charger from Dell. The wire on the charger is not bent abnormally, and since it works on some outlets I don't think that's the problem.

My questions are--

1.) Has anyone here experienced anything like this?
2.) Is this something that I can fix without having to purchase a new charger?

I'm really trying to avoid spending money on this because I am really cheap, so if it's something I can fix on my own that'd be great.
