Comp not grounded properly

Postby Liam » Sat Jul 14, 2007 1:44 pm

My parents comp doesn't seem to be grounded properly. When you touch the back of the comp and the radiator at the same time you get a slight electric shock (I got one through my ear once and that hurt a bit). I mean the comp seems fine apart from that, and it's not something you do that often unless your connecting up a printer or something.

My first thought was maybe whoever built it didn't put those washer things between the case and mobo? But I don't want to go through all the hassle of taking it out to check. Anything else it might be?
