Y500 AC Adapter makes buzzy sound, loud enough to hear it when there is silence in the room.

2013-10-25, 11:10 AM

So, until now I have never heard it but now each time I scroll through internet pages I hear how the adapter makes buzzy sound. I have it on my desk almost 1m away from me and I can hear the sound. If I don't do nothing and leave the laptop on idle it doesn't make any sound, as soon as I use the laptop there's this little noise for each action I perform.

I tested while I scrolled with mouse or touchpad, it makes this small buzzy sound.

Should it worry me? It's curious cause I never heard it before.

Mine makes a mild barely audible clicking. I can only hear it if I put it to my ear. Has your ever been put in a place where it cannot properly disperse it's heat?

The thing does get quite hot and I imagine if it were covered for a long period it might damage it.
