Bad idea even for a well built computer. I would open up the case and try moving all clutter and making sure you dont have any extra stand offs.

2. Any new hardware installed recently/any hardware changes?
The USB device he tried plugging in?

3. Any damage? Check all components and make sure they're inserted properly, especially PCI-e and memory.
How does this have to do with plugging in a USB device.

4. Anything spilled?
Which is where there could be contact.

Does it only shut down with the front panel? Have you tried plugging your phone into the rear USB ports?

If it only happens with the front panel, it is not grounded properly/defective.

Does this happen to other USB devices? Is the problem only with the phone? If that's the case, something is wrong with the phone's charger/USB cable.

If it is grounded i would suggest you open up your case and make sure there is no contact. Static shouldn't affect USB
As in the cord is grounded.

Make sure the motherboard IO plate is inserted securely. Make sure it's not loose if you push on it.

Check inside your case for potential metal contacts.

Also, if this just recently started happening.

1. Shake the case, does it freeze? If it does the motherboard or wiring is grounding out.

2. Any new hardware installed recently/any hardware changes?

3. Any damage? Check all components and make sure they're inserted properly, especially PCI-e and memory.

4. Anything spilled?
k. shook the case no freeze, no new hardware, no damage, nothing spilled that I know of.

Has been happening on two different motherboards and cases so i think i can rule that out

Wow you shoulda told this to use earlier. Its the USB device. Sound like the cord / connector might be messed up.

How is this a bad idea? You don't have to shake it like the Hulk... If your system freezes when it's shaken there's obviously loose components, it's common sense. When you're transporting a PC in a car it's going to be shaken, etc.. So giving it a shake won't do any harm.

His problem seems like a grounding issue. 90% of all grounding issues are caused from loose components or wires under the motherboard.

I don't understand why you have to jump on me, I'm only trying to help him.

Definitely sounds like the device then, actually...

just some FYI for everyone... if your sockets dont have a ground on them, get the 2 prong adapter. The adapter has a metal piece attached to it. so unscrew the screw from the wall plate and then screw the adapter in with said screw and wall plate. This will use the main panels ground to ground your socket.

I work as an electrician..

Really? cause it only happens wheni build up a charge. If i'm touching the case when i plug in a device then its fine continues working normally. For testing purposes I rubbed my feet on the rug and tried plugging in a device. That's how i identified the static as the issue. obviously i didnt rub my feet to trigger the first error. BTW thanks for the help so far.

Oh can you answer my question about getting a static shock from a grounded source then? That would really help me out.

Okay.. woops, edit.

So from what I understand so far.. When you plug a USB device into your computer, your rig shuts down?

Have you tried any other device? I don't know, it still sounds like a grounding issue to me.
