ideapad 510-151sk - Live Laptop

I contacted Lenovo technical support over a week ago saying my laptop surface lights up with a neon voltage testing screwdriver, and gave my wife a shock - only when the charger was plugged in. Lenovo seemed so concerned, and have never got back to me.


Even if it's only static I don't want it. Memory sticks etc corrupt with static.


Anyone else with this problem.

Lenovo ideapad 510-151sk

only 2 months old. Do not want to sendback to Lenovo, sensitive data on HD

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !


Sorry to hear of the problem you have experienced.  I would recommend that you discontinue using the laptop until Lenovo Support returns the call.  If you are still waiting, I would recommend calling them again.

Many thanks for your reply.

I will call them again tomorrow.


I am charging the laptop up, but only using it when the charger is disconnected. It's a pain, especially if Lenovo want it returned. Surprised no field sevice engineers out there.


I cannot give enough praise to Samsung for their home visits to my laser printer.


Will see what happens

And we're back...
