the electrical outlet in my room is acting funny. it used to be fine, but recently it doesnt work consistently. it will turn on for a couple mins, then turn off again for a couple hours. i remember about a year ago that same outlet, and others including the lights, were not working and something about the fuses were fixed. please help, poor college student so hopefully repair is cheap

Sounds like a loose wire, but it could be that the outlet is going bad. You will need to turn off power to outlet at the panel to repair or replace it in either case. Good Luck!
