Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
Static near PC
\015 I'm getting a real strange static problem near my pc. When i'm sat at the pc, the hairs on my arms and legs are reacting and i dont know why. There is no other electronic items nearby that might be causing it. I noticed my power supply in my pc is making noise now [fan trouble?] but not sure if is related or whether a psu can cause this. It's as if there is field of static around the pc. I realise static is deadly to sensitive devices, but why the pc seems unaffected is really bugging me.Does anyone have any idea's or suggestions how its happening and how i might fix this. It's very strange and is making me feel very uncomfortable.\015
Now, it could be caused by dust. The moving plastic fan blades and dust make a good static generator. Go to Wal-Mart, get a couple of cans of "canned air". Figure out how to take off the side cover and UNPLUG IT and spray all the dust out. TIP: Do not let the fans spin while you are cleaning out the computer. A spinning fan motor can sometimes act like a generator and induce current into the motherboard.>that's bad< shorting it out. Use a plastic straw >dry< to put between the blades to stop it from spinning. Try to discharge yourself b4 you start. >touch the kitchen sink metal faucet or water pipe< Components inside the PC are static sensitive. >very important that you discharge yourself first< The good news is......if this does'nt work......in a month or so the humidity will be high enough and the static will dissipate naturally.

I have a VPR Matrix model 2250 since new. I was vacuuming the inside of it and all circuit boards and accidently knocked the connection cable loose on the mother board which goes from the start push button to the mother board and I'm not real sure which pins the cable connector goes to.
