Is it possible to replace the female part of the power cord connection in a laptop?

I have a Compaq Presario CQ50. A few years old, so maybe I should be replacing it anyways, but...
Recently the connection between the charger and the battery has been malfunctioning. I put the plug all the way in and it doesn't recharge (and the little light doesn't light up). I rotate the plug back and forth, take it out and put it back in... and *sometimes* it works. And *sometimes* it stays. Long enough to keep the laptop alive, for now....
(In the mean time, it seems to be working less and less...)
Is there anyway to fix this connection? Or do I have to get a whole new computer?
