    Dell Vostro 1000 Fault?

    Okay, i'm wondering if this is just my laptop or others too or what should i do.


    When my battery fully charges and i still have the mains power on if im wearing shorts and the bottom touches my bare skin i get very small electric shocks off the screws holding the chassis together. If i touch it with my fingers i dont get the shock, but only on my legs it happens with every screw visable.

    What should I do, my laptop is about a 3 weeks old.

    Sounds like friction, static shocks.

    Agreed

    Solution
    Stop rubbing your shorts whilst on your laptop

    :thumbsup: :whistling: :giggle:

    I get that with my Dell Inspiron 1501, I always assumed it was the screws heating up :giggle:

    I remember a long discussion on this with one of the older laptops (9300?) - off the top of my head I think the PSU was to blame but it's been a while since I read the details.

    To move it ^^. Whilst it had the power cable in, shut the lid, under my arm to move to a different seat, et voila.
