|"...when i tuch the case the power shuts off and my fans kick on high..."|
How can the fans spin if it has no power?
Do you mean you lose your video when you touch the case ?
If it's a desktop computer,
- did you use the old power supply with the mboard you have now?
- did you change mboards ?
- are your using a video card you weren't using before?
(Onboard video IS NOT A CARD ! )
- whatever your case is made of, there must a continuous ground of the AC connection from the computer all the way back to where the power comes into your house in order for the computer to work properly and to be better protected from static electricity discharges. The computer's power supply is grounded by that, and there are probably internal metal mounting parts in the plastic case computer that are grounded by that too, as well as there being metal mounting parts in the metal case computer that are grounded by that too.
- Can a static electricty discharge damage a computer ? - YES ! \
Is there wall to wall carpet made of synthetic fibres where you have the computer ?
(cotton dissapates static electricity)
