19 Nov 2015   #11

Desk1 7 Home Prem / Desk2 10 Pro / Main lap Asus ROG 10 Pro 2 laptop Toshiba 7 Pro Asus P2520 7 & 10

laptop has some electric shock which is very annoying.
Now is cause for some concern and I think Zaph has the same idea re dry joints etc

Just how old is this machine??

Hi John

According to the Service Tag, laptop dates from 2012 I think.

See link in bank's post (#5) - warranty info says start date 13 Sept 2012 and ends same date in 2013 so now over 2yrs out-of-warranty (Service Tag: 93W6QQ1 | Express Service Code: 19826501833)

bank's post #9 is quite disturbing I agree:

Yes the laptop keyboard and trackpad work, but I'm more comfortable with PC mouse and keyboard, also my Dell laptop has some electric shock which is very annoying.
Are we talking just the mere hint of a tingle in the fingers or something more substantial? If the latter, don't bother fixing it - I'd bin it! However, the laptop should be running on something like 15-18V d.c so a fatal shock isn't the issue - unless the OP is talking about the mains power adapter.

Only risk if it is the laptop is corruption of data on hard disks and/or frying ESD-sensitive components.

Over to you bank ...

Ok Zaph I agree it isn't worth trying to fix it unless you have done a lot of them and to be honest some are so darn hard to disassemble.

What does bother me is not as you say the tingles but more that it could catch fire and we know what happens to those lithium batteries when they get going, and perhaps not while you are with it it could be slowly heating up when left to idle etc.
