Hello frosty69,

It would appear that the laptop is not earthed properly. Do you feel a mild shock or something like static? Does this happen when the laptop is plugged in does it also happen when its on battery?

If it is the former, I would recommend you invest in a spike buster/surge protector to plug in your laptop.

If it is the latter, it could be a leaking or damaged battery pack. I suggest you take the laptop to a qualified service center in your area and get it checked in either case.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here. Please do not assign a rating until you feel your problem is resolved. I will try my best to help you further if need be.

If you are satisfied with my solution or have no other questions, please close the problem by assigning a FIXYA rating for my solution. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!

Faulty lid / screen on HP HDX18T Laptop


Yes this is either the video cable which runs from the motherboard to the screen or the inverter. Both are inexpensive but the cheapest option to replace before you look at the screen itself. Of course if you check that the cable isn't loose would be a good place to start. You need to remove the keyboard to access this.

Ejecting dvd


Look for a character that looks like a little pyramid on the screen or when you touch the Finder key. Hit it and when it goes off it means that you ejected the disc.
