yoga to repeatedly dying to Static Shock

Three times within the last 5 weeks my computer turned off after receiving a static shock from my finger. One time I was able to push the power button and get it to turn back on. However the other times the computer has died completely and shows no lights. Once I had to take it somewhere for them to take out the battery and reseat it and then it seem to work. The other  just happened so I have not had the opportunity to see if that same thing will fix it . This does not seem normal to me especially since I've had the computer for two-and-a-half years and this has just started happening. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi ewehren and welcome to the community,

 

This is a common occurance with a lot of electrical machines. the best way to stop if happening is to ground yourself before touching the laptop and then you shouldnt have this issue again.

 

Hope this help you and let us know how you get on
