Question Why my mobos burn a fuse?

Hello

Two cards have recently failed me. And I don't understand why it didn't happen to me before.
The only difference is that I moved home two months ago but I think it has nothing to do with it.
Before touching them I touch metal with my hands to get rid of the static. Here now I touch an aluminum staircase.
I have rubber soled shoes but I don't think it matters.
I leave the cards anywhere, but I've always done this.
What can it be?
Thank you very much and best regards

What fuse ? I don't think any static electricity generated like that can burn fuses, it would kill you first.

Yes, I think maybe it is the power supply. I bought it used shortly before I moved house. It's a Hama with a gadget that allows you to choose the right voltage. Maybe it is bad quality and sends shocks into the mobos
