Power problems on 2yr old Alienware 17Model P18E laptop

The last few months I've been having problems with my power cord with it saying its not plugged in on my laptop and the only way I have been able to fix it is to disconnect the battery and do a power surge every couple of weeks. I was wondering if anyone knew if this is a beginning to a more serious problem with my laptop or could it just be that I need a new cord?

Hi,

Just to confirm, do you have an Alienware M17X R3? Have you tried flashing the Bios firmware to the latest version?

the model no. is P18E. It's not the m17x r3 that was the only tag that was an alienware with a 17'' screen
