Because you have issues with this laptop already and now a static one, it seems too much is going on. With all this happening, you may a warranty problem and have to escalate it for a true repair or refund. Of course static(ESD) is part of your environment. If you have such an issue, you're the cause as well as the home. You as a person transmit or allow as you're the conduit for ESD passage. A properly grounded modern home will provide a path to discharge if you touch anything already grounded. There are desktop style static touchpads for such use. You can then touch laptop. A "anti-static floor mat" can help as well as using static sprays if alot of static build-up is happening. While you mentioned it maybe the battery then you got a "electrical issue" not a static one. Let's be clear if all of this is happening, then the 1st sentences above applies. Then again, if you truly have a static problem, then its not HP laptop fault, this is something you have to resolve. I have provided some solutions above.
You can also take the laptop to a totally different area(someone's else home or library) and check out results there.
