My Charger gets really hot when...

When I use my computer while charging, the part that plugs in gets really hot, and sometimes makes this high pitched noise. Also, it creates a burning rubber smell. It's obvious that something is wrong, but I'm not sure what to do. It seems when I charge it while not using it, it doesn't charge like it used to....this has been going on for about 2 weeks.

Should I get a new charger? Or take my laptop in to be seen?

It certainly sounds like something's wrong. I'd suggest you stop using it immediately and contact support at (800) 457-7777.
