Dell :: My 1555 A/c Power Adaptor Is HOT And BUZZING

Aug 19, 2009

I received my 1555 today and am absolutely over the moon. Trying to installing Windows 7 RC on at the moment and apart from some small hiccups - due to user erroor everything is going smoothly. BUT

From the moment I plugged in the a/c power adaptor I noticed that every so often it produces a buzzing noise? It happens every 20sec to 1min or so and last between 1sec to 10sec each time. Does anyone's do that? Not only that, it gets pretty hot as well, when I put my hand on it(on the label side) it feels really hot, in fact so hot that I have to take my hand off unless I 'made' myself stay there. Is this normal?

Dell :: Power Adaptor Compatability

Feb 27, 2010

I own a Studio 1557 that uses an adaptor with 19.5V/4.62A output.

The jack sizes are identical. Can we use each other's adaptors? My assumption is that I might get away with both but that my wife might damage her laptop with my adaptor due to the higher output.

Dell :: I Think My Power Adaptor Is Dying

Nov 12, 2008

Just this morning I was using my notebook (E1505) for my homework. Than I went to class, plugged it in and the light on the adaptor didnt come on.

I tried different outlets and the same thing.

I unwravelled my cord, and the problem seemed to go away, (for now)

I guess i need to replace my power adaptor.

How long do you think it will take to get a new one?

I have the highest warranty thing Dell offers

Dell :: Studio 1558 And The 90 Slim Power Adaptor

Mar 1, 2010

What are your experiences regarding how hot the adaptor gets? A couple of times now I've been viewing a flash video or what ever while browsing and have found that the 90W adaptor has gotten uncomfortably hot to the touch.

i mean it gets hot enough that the label on the back with the adaptor specs has begun to bubble in spots.

Acer :: UK Power Adaptor For AS1810TZ

Dec 13, 2009

I've got an Acer AS1810TZ (originally bought in the US) which I'm going to be using in the UK. Can someone please confirm:

a) That I just need to get a UK power adaptor to run it in the UK.
b) That this one will do the job?

If either of those assumptions are wrong I'd very much like to be corrected and shown a suitable solution -

Acer :: Power Adaptor Not Working - Aspire 5315

Mar 17, 2008

I have a new Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook, I've only had it about a month, and just a few days ago when I tried to plug in, as the batter was about to die, it wouldn't register that I was plugging it into the AC adapter. I can't get it to charge at all. I did notice that the small LED on the box on the AC adapter was coming on, so I know it's getting power, it just won't take power to the notebook, could someone tell me if there's a way to check if it's the adapter that's the problem?

It is still under warranty, so I called Acer support, and the guy wouldn't listen to me, he kept interrupting me just saying they'd send a new adapter. I just want to be sure that's the problem.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6-1235cl AC Power (brick) Adapter Buzzing Noises- Normal Or Faulty

Aug 10, 2009

I have been looking online and getting mixed results regarding buzzing noises from ac power adapters. My old hp dv6000 laptop powerbrick did not make buzzing noises as loud as my new dv6-1235cl from costco.

I noticed that a lot of people now hear buzzing noises from their ac adapter. Then I came onto this website.


Is this a bunch of bs or are they for real?

I can hear the buzzing noise when I put my ac adapter on the table, but almost non existent when its on the ground. I want to know if this will be a fire safety hazard in the future? I dont want my house burning down even when this thing is plugged in.

Dell :: Studio 1555 Power Brick Clicking

Sep 13, 2009

Had the Studio since Wednesday and its great!

However, the power brick has started to make noises? A series of about 10 clicks in quick sucession repeated twice in a couple of seconds.

It will then go quiet for a while then do it again?

Its also pretty hot, too hot to touch for a while and its hot quickly - in about 10mins from cold.

Should I get a replacement or is this normal?

How do I go about getting it replacd? Sounds like its shorting or something?

Dell :: CPU 100% On Ac Adaptor Xps1330

Oct 17, 2008

I currently have a xps 1330 with Intel core 2 duo T7500 2.2ghz Nvidia 8400M gs
3GB ram Operating on Vista home premium sp1

So far everything was going well on my laptop, did the tweaks I found on the forum and the laptop was performing very quickly. I noticed it was overheating however and called dell and they sent me a replacement motherboard.

Everything was working fine at first until I notice a huge performance drop. The computer took around 3-5 minutes to start up and all the programs took quite a while to start. The cpu usage was constantly reaching 100%.

After calling dell a few times and running a bunch of test and spyware removal tools, the problem still exist. I noticed today that this problem is only occurring when the ac adapter is plugged in and will work fine on just battery power. I called dell again today to report this finding and they still couldn't figure out what was wrong, they were just sure it couldn't be a hardware error. They can only suggest I do a clean install of Vista.

Nov 16, 2009

My PA-10 ac adapter died a few months ago just out of warranty, it was powering at the mains for a while but it is totally dead now. I have finally decided I need a new charger however not sure what to get.

Do I need to go for the PA-10 again or can I get the newer slim PA-3E one instead?

Its just I have found the PA-3E on for a lot less than I can get the PA-10 either from Dell themselves or on eBay.
