Default [Q] Touch screen goes crazy when charging?

Whenever I plug in my charger, my touch screen starts going bonkers, but unplugged it performs perfectly fine. I have turned on pointer locations to see what is going on. The touch screen fails to register touches and also fails to keep track of my finger. For instance, if I quickly swipe my finger up and down repeatedly, it will only track my finger for a very short amount of time, and sometimes fails to follow my finger at all. Unplugged, it continuously tracks my finger. Has anyone had a similar problem?

I have tested multiple chargers using my computer and a wall outlet. The problem always persists.

That's a problem on just about any smartphone. It's something to do with the voltage supplied

I have the same problem, except that the screen registers more touches and my device is a Micromax A75.

I had the same problem with my one x. It was because I was using a different charger. Ensure you are using the stock charger and if the problem persists, try a different micro usb lead!
