I am using a laptop that I believe is having the ground loop issue. It zaps me if I touch the metallic frame when I stand on my ceramic floor.
I have a USB headset and the microphone picks up the buzzing static noise. Now, after wearing a pair of slippers (to prevent myself getting zapped again) and if I placed my hand on my laptop, the buzzing noise that was previously picked up by the microphone is reduced drastically. At times when I need to use the microphone, I tend to place my hand on my laptop to reduce the static noise. Is it safe for me to do so?
