Question about Computers & Internet
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.
