cut out. It was really hot to touch.
Since then I have been using another IBM power supply I had lying
around, which had exactly the same voltage and current rating
(although there was a compatibility problem with the barrel connector.
I couldn't see any diference, but Barry Weitzman suggested the centre
pin had a different thickness. He was right).
NOw, I've just tried the original power supply again. It works!
Although it is a litttle bit on the warm side.
Any comments ?
I suppose there is some kind of internal cut out.

computer (this includes whether you are recharging a battery, burning a
CD or DVD, even what programs you are running). So you may be drawing
less now than you were then. I'd use the supply if it's working, but at
the same time I would not be surprised if you have further problems.
