Did you read my post, man?

Hard Drives come with anti vibration screws/grommets... Not the computer itself.

If you don't believe shaking a computer is a valid diagnosis in trying to determine a grounding issue you can talk to any technician and I bet you he'll say it is!

What really threw me off is when he said it also does it with his headphones.

meaning its not the PC or the devices. Some how he is building the ultimate electro static field thats some how shutting off his PC.

You know some times that solution just isn't good enough.

Its like you having the fastest car in the world that has a accelration problem. Sure you can do 200 but its going to take 20 minutes.. Some times you just need to walk around in a pair of wool socks with a hat made of balloons after you rolled around in your carpet.

Not only recheck cables, but pull them off and reseat them look specifically at the ATX cable, the molex connector, or the CPU fan connector as prime suspects. It might not be one of those three, but they are the most suspect. They just all need to be removed and put back on to make sure they are secure.

He will tell you its the wrong way of doing it but that yes it is the easiest way to diagnose the problem. I know this because i fix PC for a living..

As for anti vid screws. Maybe its cause i order all my HARD DRIVES in OEM packaging but i never seen a hard drive come with any special screws. The case usually supplies that. If it does..

Ok. This is werid could it be that Both PC have wiring issues? Have you tried doing some cable management in the cases? Some times tugging on the cables can expose a bit of copper.

But the wrong way is wrong. it sounds stupid but if computers had right i think every computer repair man would be arrested. man work with out static pads / Straps, They carry power supply by the wires, They place objects ontop of anti static bags, and constantly ripping apart the organs of a work bench computer as if it were a guinne pig (LOL i make my self laught)

But what ever His PSU didnt blow up, he didnt get electrocuted and his hard drives are still functional. But he still has the problem so lets get fixing.
