PC conducting electicity - ideas?
Have a work PC that had not been used for about 2 months. Turned it on got message that hard drive was not found. Opened up PC to check that nothing had become loose or dusty. Replugged in power supply and found that the back of the tower was conductive (PC powered off). unplugged power supply and there was no conductivity. Checked the power strip and all was ok. Replaced the power supply cord PC returned to conductive.
Anyone have any ideas?
current running through case with power on
I feel a low grade charge running through the case. It is not a static jump. when the power is off the charge is not there. With the power on the charge can be felt on the case. --
Looking around the web has me believing the possibility that I might have a low grade short inside the PSU (wire insulator melt touching metal). I am hoping for another possibility that is actually fixable without replacement.
