Is the power adapter faulty or motherboard may cause problems to the adapter?
Yes. I know its not what you want to hear, but a faulty power adapter, and a bad/broken/shorted power socket, or motherboard can cause those symptoms. (<Conjunction Junction would be proud) A power brick can shut down in case of a short to protect itself.
I am fortunate to have extra power bricks and adapters here to test problems like this. Likely you don't have another brick, but that will be the easiest/most foolproof way to pinpoint the problem.
Examine the socket for obvious damage. If you are careful, and you have a DVOM with small enough probes, you might ck the resistance of the socket, but that would still be inconclusive.
