    Got a strange issue with my macbook. 2 in fact.

    One is when ive got any printer plugged into the usb ports, the case seems to be loke statically charged or similar. Feels like theres a little current in the casing when its in


    2nd one is i keep having a message of some sort pop up now and again but it flashes that quick i cant see what it is. How do i find whats causing it. Its every now and again and been for the last couple of weeks.


    Any help or ideas??

    Your printer or printer USB cable is faulty and i would stop using it now.

    thanks for that.. it seems to be when I switch the printer on first then connect to the macbook...

    Really hope my printer is not on the way out as its my big a3 one and really cant afford for it to die....
