hey,

the other day my girlfriend placed her hand on the back of my neck while i was using my laptop, and it created small shocks between my neck and her hand. the electricity is obvioulsy travelling through me as i use it. is this bad or does it just happen with things like laptops?! i wouldn't like to die of electricity cancer.

thanks

Wasn't it just static and the fact your were using your laptop at the time was just a coincidence?

Known issue with Dell laptops. Don't worry though - it's not considered to be a safety hazard, as the voltage flowing through the keyboard will only be around 5v, and when I left last year, it was considered normal enough operation that it doesn't warrant any repairs or a safety capture, where the whole system is picked up and replaced with whatever the current equivelent model is.

Of course, it's not the voltage that kills, but the current. Something you might want to point out, if a suitably displeased phonecall is made.
