    Shock from metal parts- G46VW

    Hey Guys,
    So I finally got my first laptop, a couple of days ago, A G46VW.

    Its a very cool laptop. But Since the first time I used it the Aluminium palm rests of the laptop give a electric sensation when the laptop is connected to the grid. So I waited a couple of days and got a belkin power surge protector. And that didn't help either.

    I was looking up things online and so far the only reason I could find is that there is no grounding. But the laptop comes with a 3pin plug so I assume thats not the problem (also I am assuming that my plug point has proper earthing).

    So is this common? Is it harmful (to me or more importantly to the laptop)?
    Also will this cause any damage to the USB devices I plug in, like my XBOX controller?

    ASUS G46VW-BSI5N06
    Intel Corei5-3230M | nVidia GTX-660M 2GB GDDR5 | 8GB DDR3 RAM | 750 GB 5400 RPM HDD | 1366x768 14" Screen
