Ok, I revived a old pentium laptop using the oven baking method, and now i started to do some folding with that laptop
what the problem is that power brick makes "zzzzzzzzz" which i think it is called coil whine under full load

So, I'd wondering if the power brick will cause any problem soon, because I'm going to trip to Orlando tomorrow for 8 days and I do not want my house to burn down by the power brick caught on fire because of intense load

Is there any way to fix this zzzz sound
it is not a major problem?

just want to know before i leave, or maybe i'll just let it rest a bit until i come back

the power brick which comes with the laptop
the black rectangle thing that converts power from the wall to power that laptop needs

It won't burn out. It's probably that your wall socket can't take the load or something. Tried from a different socket?
