Hi there! I just helped a friend put his PC together. When we started the pc it could not connect to the screen so we made sure the graphics card was properly connected and such. Then when i touched the backpanel to power on the pc again i noticed that it was as though my finger had electricity running through it when i touched the back, continously. As it never stopped till i pulled the power cable out, even if the power butten on the back was set to off the entire chasses was still "electrified".

I've never had this problem before and was hoping someone here might have an answer for me or a solution of some sort :)

Put the case on some wood
If not
Grab a nail and like 50cm cable
Get the brass matrieal out of the cable casings/cover
Tie one end of the brass thingy on the aio pannel
And then install the nail in the ground
Then tie the other end of the brass thing in the nail
Sorry for my basic english if u want i can send u pics

Your English is perfect :)

Could the same be accomplished with an earth connection in the power cable?
