This is an American laptop. But I noticed this problem in Amman, Jordan. I thought initially that it was probably related to an inconsistent power supply. But now I notice this problem persists in England. It is not every time it is plugged in, but at least 50% of the time.
It's lead me to a couple of conclusions about what is probably causing it:
1) Both England and Jordan run 230V. The US runs off 120V. I wonder that, even though the AC adapter says it is capable of running up to 240V it's not really designed to as it's american. I wonder if getting a good converter could solve the problem??
2) Perhaps the charger is a dud.
3) It's something else I haven't thought have.
Any suggestions or any help would be fantastic!
