I am the proud owner of an eMachines M6809 notebook, long out of its warranty repair.
The other day I got off the couch and the first thing I touched was the mouse/ directional pad thingy on the notebook right below the keyboard. I was shocked by static electricity right when I was touching the pad. The pad never worked again, and I am assuming my shock fried it.
Has anyone ever heard of this happening?
Any guesses on how much it will cost to repair this?
