Hi.
 
I has been getting shocked through my earphones in laptop recently. My laptop is Dell Inspiron 14R. Sometimes, I also get shocked from chasis. My laptop chasis is not connected to ground. Here we don't have ground connection for safety.
I just noticed that the shock only happens when I charge the laptop. There is no problem if the jack is unpluged.
 
The shock happens continuously each time the charger is pluged.
Could you suggest some solutions?
You know, I don't like this experience at all.
Here is my earphones.

Hello,

For starters replace the charger, try another outlet. What about the washer machine do you get shocked on that ?

Thanks. I think it is not from the charger. However, I don't have another charger right now. I will try that tomorrow. 

I thought this is maybe from laptop itself.

Take the battery out when you try the charger. See if that does anything.

I just did that and the problem remains. I don't want to taste that sting at all.  :no:

Well hopefully it's just the charger and replacing it will fix the issue.

In the mean time go out and hammer a metal rod in the ground, wrap a wire around it and attach the other end of the wire to the chasis on the Laptop :)

Thank you. Hope it is not a serious problem. The charger looks still good. (just through appearance)

I will do that tomorrow. It is 1am here and I can't find anywhere to push that rod into ground.
