Some outlets won't work with laptop

14 years ago

I live in a pretty old house by Idaho standards and I'm having some strange electric issues.

I have plugged my laptop into the same outlet for about the past 5 months with no problem and the other week it decided not to work. I thought it was the power cord, until I happened to try it in another outlet and it worked. Then I tried it in a different outlet and it didn't work. Then last night the strangest thing happened. I had my laptop plugged in next to my bed and it was working. I then unplugged my cell phone charger (thinking it would give the laptop more power) and the laptop cord stopped working. I plugged the cell charger back in and it worked again. Very Strange!

Any thoughts?
