  3. Is my laptop psu dangerous right now? Getting shocks touching metal on case
2 years ago#1
Basically the power connector plugs into back which has a usb port next to it, if I touch that I get a very minor sensation, but if I touch the metal things on the left side such as vga socket, usb port or firewire I get a shock.

However the usb ports on the right hand side do not give me shock.

Also even when I do not even touch the metal I have a tingly feeling in my legs.

In case anyone asks I am serious.

I have been testing it, it only occurs if the power supply is plugged in but not when its removed and runs off battery or if I lift my feet off the ground so going back to my school days I guess I am creating a circuit

I also put a rug under me to test and it was so bad that even my feet tingled so yeah sounds like a dead power supply to me, but just want to check.

Not dead but a ground short so yeah replace that power supply can't be good for the components and it's a fire hazard.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.
