BSOD from static electricty

  1. Hello everyone!

    I seem to be having an issue involving static electricity. Whenever I touch the front bezel of my PC and give it a shock it will restart with a BSOD. It doesn't seem to do this anywhere else on the case afaik. I checked the outlet and the surge protector and both are giving ground so that should be fine. My front bezel has nothing attached to it whatsoever, no wires or anything. The case I have is the Thermaltake Core V71. Any ideas as to why this is happening?

    You have described it - and the issue is how to resolve it. I taped a ground connection to the back of a shiny bezel because the plastic was building static.
