I have an HP Pavilion dv7-6135dx. This morning, the power supply/AC adapter started making squealing noises for a few seconds at a time.
I had it plugged in during a storm that happened while I was sleeping. As soon as I got up and realized, I put it in a surge protector. As I type this, it seems to have stopped for the moment, but it was going on and off almost constantly a couple of minutes ago.
I'm assuming this means I need to replace the supply, but not sure if it actually means anything at all.
Running Ubuntu 15.04, it that's relevant.
EDIT: I should also mention that I had the laptop powering 4 usb devices (Keyboard, mouse, gaming controllers) for several hours yesterday. Again, don't know if this is relevant.
EDIT 2: As I start to use the laptop, I'm noticing that it seems to squeak a little bit when I pick up the mouse or start typing.
