Computer won't turn on and electric shocks
My computer won't occasionally turn on but shutting the main plug off and trying after some time seems to work or just opening the thing and fiddling with random parts from the power pin to making sure the unused connectors aren't touching the case also works but the problem won't go away.

I've been having a problem with getting electric shocks from my computer too. I changed my old unbranded psu for a co https://vidmate.onl/ olermaster mwe v2 450 watt which came with a plug that was too big for the socket so I took an old 2 pin plug and used it.

Sometimes when the computer doesn't turn on I get an electric shock or can feel current on the psu and even the cpu cooler. https://mobdro.onl/

I can feel the shock only when my system is turned off as when I power it on I can't feel anything but as soon as I turn off I can literally feel the charge slowly building on the cpu cooler which is an antec a30.

Do I need a 3 pin power connector? Or is this a problem that can be related to my power bar or psu?

The new cpu cooler is a 3 pin from the original 4 pin so one pin is exposed if that helps

Put you pc into a tub full with water and then plug in the cable into socket wall.
For sure will start right away.
Look but don't touch. Touch, but don't taste. Taste, don't swallow.

It sounds like you have a grounding issue, you need the correct plug/adapter.

That is quite rude.

Why are you all responding to spammers that have just created an account, have one post and have been posting similar tech/computer/phone threads, most with links to omegle, reddit and other sites which are edited out soon after?
