PC Crashing - New Thread

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
New Thread for clarity, updating 4 pages in would be mostly useless.

The issue is this:
When I make contact with the PC: by hand, by setting side panel against case, or (especially) by usb or esata (even before it's connected!),
it: Crashes.

It used to give a black screen with red streaks, and then restart. Some times it restarts instantly. Some times it locks up. Some times it locks up as if the HDD was disconnected (the mouse still moves), and then restarts after a delay. Some times it locks up and restarts 5s later.

What else can I try? I am rather amazed at this point.

Thanks.

Sounds like there may be a short somewhere. Rip the whole thing apart and rebuild very slowly.
