How to fix ESD issue with my PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone, I have had this issue for nearly a year now. I started noticing at my old apartment when I would stand up from a computer session and my monitor would flicker on and off. Then I started having some off fuzz sounding randomly in my headphones. Finally today, I think I have narrowed it down. I was sitting on the floor (carpet) and accidentally touched my PC (it is also sitting on the floor because it wont fit on my desk) and the whole thing just shut down. Screen went black, I had to hard power cycle it.

How can I fix this? I didn't used to have these problems but since it has gotten much dryer with the cold weather, it is starting to get pretty annoying and I am worried I will mess something up on my PC, headset, or monitor. I have no idea where to start with this and have no real experience.

Go on offer up or craigslist and get a small piece of furniture for your PC to sit on and get a UPS.

I have had the PC on the desk previously and still had these issues, I am not sure that will solve it.
