    Amazing, thanks for the update

    Although I'm no longer worried about an impending PC failure I'm still interested in running this to ground, as it were.

    It's hard for me to visualize it as just a simple static discharge problem. I believe the only way static can in and of itself affect a circuit would be via a spark discharge which could possibly induce a current in the PC or attached wiring and for it to do that the spark would probably have to be big enough see and hear.which I haven't. Something like a mini EMP, not something like the tiny blue spark you can get when you open your car door on a cold dry winter day...
