Sorry that I did not see this query until just now.Hi Neil,
...deleted... some lines...
I have a question regarding the AC adaptor. The adaptor I bought is a third party 19.5V 6.7A and it crackles quite loudly. Is this a faulty adaptor? Do I need to be concerned about it destroying the components?
I sure don't like the "crackles quite loudly". I would probably not use that AC adaptor. With these "wall worts" AC to DC power supplies, you should on notice a small arc as they are plugged into a live AC outlet. Other then that they should be silent.
And I have used Dell laptops for years and never had a Dell power brick fail.
