Static Shock to Case Power Button..Mobo Fried?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Late night i was in bed, then I remembered that I needed to pay a bill that was due the next day. So I jump out of bed, and right to my PC. I reach for the power button with my static charged finger, unawares, and get a shocking surprise. I didnt actually press the button, but the PC fired up anyway...only to power down 3 seconds later. So I ground myself (too late), and press the power button. Nothing..no response.
Next I open the case and press the power button on the mobo...no response. The power and reset button on the mobo are lit up btw. So then I unplug my power cord from the psu, wait for the pc to drain completely, then plug the cord back in. Right when I plug the power cord back in the pc fires up, then dies 3 seconds later.

I've tried:
-shorting out the battery
-resetting cmos
-screwdriver to the case power pin
-bench test

All with the same result.

Heres my hardware:
CASE: Thermaltake MK-I Chaser
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k @ 3.4GHz
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 580 3GB
MOBO: Asus P8Z68V PRO/GEN3
MEM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR3-1600 (4x4)
SSD: Crucial M4 128GB
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB

Windows 7 Home

Dont know what to do next. I bought everything in February of 2012, so everything should be under warranty if qualified.

Thanks in advance.
