Seek professional help
The user may notice that the AC adapter is not charging the system in the proper manner and is getting hot in a very short span of time. It becomes too hot and you will not be able to touch it with your bare hands. In such cases you are required to contact a professional technician immediately. This issue can be very serious since it can damage the ports and other internal components of the adapter.
Check electrical system
The AC adapter problem can also arise due to a faulty electrical system. The low voltage could lead to the AC adapters heating up very fast and may damage the internal electrical settings of the adapter. It is recommended to check the electrical system to ensure that proper wiring is done to prevent any short-circuits.
The AC adapter problem can be a serious issue and may not be solved with any troubleshooting method. In such cases the AC adapter needs to be replaced with a new one that is more compatible with the Toshiba Satellite U500 laptop. It is available at any recognized store that sells original equipment for computers.
