    The Not So Magic Touch

    has this ever happened to anybody, your moving around your PC, not even considerably enough to jossle parts out. maybe you just touch the case and the system freezes or turns off. it has happened to me once or twice, on seperate pcs. is this some kind of static shock reaction or something. anyone experience these oddities?

    Yeah. I know someone like that. He has some storng electromagnetic field inside his body. A little stronger than usual. Says that his Grandmother had the same problem that she couldn't wear machanical watches. It's very odd, but cool in a way.

    I think most likely it's just that one of the expansion cards came out a little. I've had hell with AGP cards, as have others. They have to be perfect or the machine will act dead.

    I've had the exact same thing happen, no clue why but it has stopped me from moving my box when it's on

    I had that happen to me before. It turned out that that PC had metal touching metal at some part that was causing the problem. (shorting it to reboot)
