everytime i use my laptop while charging I always get these very mild but noticeable electric shocks. I noticed that if my feet don't touch the ground it goes away but as soon as I drop them it comes right back. My charger uses a 3 prong outlet and in the Philippines, we only use 2 prongs, so I had to use a universal adapter because the laptop came from the US. I noticed this one tiny metal thing sticking out of the universal adapter and when I touch it at the same time touching my laptop, the electric shocks disappear. Is this because of grounding or is my charger just faulty? may I know if this would damage my laptop?
