Draconas Posted May 17, 2016 Share Posted May 17, 2016 So I have an acer aspire 5315 old ass laptop from a ballpark of 2007 with a lot of interesting memories attached to it. Today after throwing ubuntu on it, I noticed that the wall power was cut off, I check the plug and it's still in, I reset it and it worked fine for 5 minutes, rinse and repeat about 3 times until the power brick never came back to life. Here's the point of this thread, what (if anything) in a laptop power brick can break in such a way that when partially powered, can affect other electronics over the air? as when powered, a few USB devices on another machine on a completely different electrical circuit will just drop then come back, this behavior is repeatable but I imagine this isn't good for anything.
