Is it normal for the ac adapter to emit a very faint high pitched and constant ringing sound? I just noticed this yesterday as I had to reach down to plug it into a socket. It's really faint and you can only hear it when you put your ear a few centimeters next to it ... but it isn't silent.

So far, I've left the laptop running to check and the battery still charges properly and there are no fluctuations or power interruptions of any sort. While the adapter gets warm, it doesn't get unbearably hot.

Anyway, just wanted to know if it is normal.. and if so, what is the cause?

Electricity will generate noise, but I wouldn't expect any from a small power converter, but I've been wrong before. I've never put my ear close to one. The important thing to be concerned with is when it gets too hot. Warm is OK but not hot

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
