I built a PC out of a LANBOX LITE http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133045 and an ASUS http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131657 with an AMD chip in it.

Every time I _touch_ the case, and get the _lightest_ static shock, the computer resets, just as if you had hit the power switch.

Also, if you touch it again with an other static shock, the computer turn on again.

The case is connected to the motherboard properly with all standoffs attached.

Case problem, or motherboard problem?

That entire case is made of metal, so definitely metal

This same thing happened to me when I was at school. What happened was I touched my friends computer, and it kept shutting off when I touched it, but when anyone else toched it it would stay on.
