    Nop, its in its stock condition. I guess its is a grounding problem after all.

    Now that's scary.

    A surge protector cannot protect against improper grounding.
    Didn't know that. :P

If it doesn't, then the electrical network could be to blame - in that case, I don't know if it would damage anything, since I am by no means an electrical engineer - if you know any of those, they might be able to help you more.
    Hmm, I'll try to find local solutions to this problem then. Cause it most definitely is a local problem.

    Simple test would be to get a Volt meter and put it to the suspected part of the PC and then to a grounding point like a pipe that is part of your building. That is what outlets are grounded to.

    Good idea - as well as a safe one. Line voltage in the USA is dangerous - not normally lethal, but definitely not something to play around with casually. Electricity can be dangerous - both to people and to electronics. Leaking that much voltage through your system that the chassis (part of the grounding usually) is charged could damage the sensitive circuitry inside.
    I am disturbed because I cannot break my system...found out there were others trying to cope! We have a support group on here, if your system will not break, please join!

    We now have 178 people whose systems will not break! Yippee!
    LINUX Users, we have a group!
