Today I was in my kitchen and could hear loud hissing sounds coming from the room where my z-50 was sitting, it was on and plugged into the charger. Well I look in and there were sparks coming from the laptop. As soon as it stopped I immediately disconnected the charger. The laptop was still on and still worked. I turned it off and and checked out the outside/ports/ect. I noticed a rattle I had never heard before. I then opened the case and a screw dropped out. It was a screw to the hard drive. Is it possible the screw got into something else and caused the sparks? I read about a recall on chargers but I don't think mine applies to that. I'm also 2 days out of warranty. Has this happened to anyone else?
