Hi ive got quite a big problem and i need help.
I played on my guitar which was connected to my external sound card M-Audio fast track Mk. II, a then when i was finnished playing i touched to guitar connector and i got really big electric shock.
When i started to play i didnt get any shocks.
Can somebody please tell me what could be a problem ?
Im using laptop lenovo Ideapad Y550p.

Thanks for every answer

Sounds like your guitar isn't grounded correctly.

Hmmm, i dont think that is the problem, because i have another guitar and bass, and im getting shock even when i play on them ...

Is your laptop plugged into the wall outlet? Try changing outlets, or unplugging it and running off the battery to make sure it's not the power source.

A grounding issue is really the only thing I can think of that would cause this. I've had this happen to me with amps before and it was because of improper grounding.

Yea, so its wrong outlet. I tried to play on guitar with only battery in laptop for long time and i didnt get any shock. Well im living in quite old house, so this is probably the problem. I will call an electrician.
Thank you very much for that advice with battery, much appreciated
