There are no high voltages in this model.

This is a LED LCD so gone are the KiloVolt CCFL drivers. It's also one of those 2 prong AC plugs so there should be no direct path from laptop to ground and if there is, your house wiring needs checking as well as the electrician to check out your laptop for this issue.

Given the story I take it you don't want to risk it.

My advice is to take it to where or who works on your PC.
