I had my Macbook Pro plugged into a wall outlet last night. I had run the battery to about 8% and was just starting to charge it. It was plugged in and then suddenly stopped charging, no green or red light came on on the adapter. I do know that when I started charging it I had the power cord contorted a little just because the outlet was in an awkward spot. Maybe that's what did it. But I've tried charging it in other outlets and it still won't charge, with the battery in and without the battery. I inspected the power cord and have seen no damage or frayed parts to it.

I've noticed when the adapter is plugged into any outlet that it starts making a clicking noise, as if there is a charge going through the plugs into the adapter but it's not working. This clicking noise makes me believe that maybe the adapter is just fried?

Also, I haven't been able to try charging my laptop with another power adapter. If it works, I'll let you know.

Is it possible I just need to buy a new 85 watt magsafe power adapter?
