My Laptop gives me a little electric shock feeling

Share at Facebook

Does anyone had experience about getting little amount of shock from Laptop? I'm using HP laptop, and today found a little amount of shock feeling. Believe me, its soft one, but when it gets suddenly, it just pumped up the heart bit a little. And I don't wanna get that kind of feeling again :-(

From few blogs I found this issue can happen due to battery leakage, or from an old battery. I just shut down my laptop, and checked my battery and it looked fine to me. No smell like burning, or something other like that.

Probably the issue may be for using 2 Pin power plug. I just changed the power plug. Replaced my 2 pin power plug with 3 pin plug. This one has earthing on it, and I think this is the reason for me to get some shock from laptop. Its working without any pain now after that.

Yes this is a common problem whit HP, DEL, and old Mac, change to a travel adapter or use a grounded outlet,

The travel adapter is a solutin in 9 out of 10 times but i dont know wye.
