Lacie Extreme 1TB hard drive problem

I have a Lacie 1TB Extreme hard drive.
I have just purchased a new PC with Vista Business 32 bit operating system, I disconnected the drive set up the machine, re connected the drive and all should be well! But not so.
At first I thought it was a Vista problem but anow notice the mains supply is buzzing badly and affecting the start up of the drive.
First I think I need a new mains adaptor/power supplier. Maybe the problem is Vista also?
Has anyone experienced similar?
Does anyone know where I can purchase a new mains adaptor?

From what you say, the drive is failing to initiate when powered on - the drive isn't spinning up -is that what's happening? If there's a power light on the drive it looks hopeful.
Buzzing noises from transformers are never a happy sign - do you have access to another transformer of the correct output rating?
