Grounding my pc with wire connecting to case

Hello guys,   my psu cable wire Has 2 pins no ground,but my psu has ground pin in it,   and my power outlet has 3 pins including ground

I get shock from pc case or any of its screws, which means pc not grounded

 

So if I take a wire and connect to the screw and give that wire to the sockets ground 

Will it be good ?

 

Im stoping to use pc after my friend said its dangerous to use pc without grounding it

 

My question is exactly can you ground pc from the case instead of ground wire from psu

 

Also this is my temporary solution

I orderd good psu cable with ground online bt it takes a week to arive on my location

 

Sorry for my bad english

I would avoid using the computer at ALL, until you have the right cable. Please don't try to rig anything up yourself.

^^^ 100%, electrical stuff isn't something to fuck with unless you know what you're doing. Better to have a week without a PC than to accidentally roast yourself trying to jerry rig something.

I've worked with a diamatic machine before . The power cable popped out of the motor and the wires touched the ground ... it was a pure dry concrete floor and that plug was powerful enough to arc through the ground . It sounded like a gunshot and it burnt the floor black . Don't mess with the cable itself . It won't shock you like a PSU would . It would totally kill you .

If your power outlet is grounded, why not just get a power cord that has ground?!?!
