Default Weird ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1201N Problem

This is a problem that happens intermittently. Sometimes when I plug in my ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1201N and I touch the mouse, trackpad button I feel something like a slight electric, tingly charge running through my finger. When I first noticed it I unplugged it from the wall socket and immediately that weird sensation when away. So it only happens when I plug it in. It seems to have started doing this semi-recently, so it has not been a continuous problem.
Anyone else have this problem?

Does it happen when plugged into different wall sockets? If it does it when plugged into wall socket A but not wall socket B, it's possible that wall socket A's ground is faulty.

If it happens regardless of which wall socket it's plugged into, it may be a problem with the ground wire in the AC plug of the netbook's wall adapter. Make sure the wire that connects the brick to the wall socket is seated fully.

If you are still experiencing issues, you may need to get a replacement power adapter.
