✔ Best Answer
A strong magnetic field can corrupt the data on a hard disk.

However, the magnetic field for a TV is not going to be string enough to cause any damage. I had lap top sitting right next to a TV for many years without any ill effect.

As for a refrigerator, the vibration when the motor clicks in is more likely to be more harmful than any magnetic field.

I'd have to doubt that a strong magnet would affect a hard disk even if you put it on top of it. The platters are totally enclosed in a metal casing which ought to shield them.
