    Both PC-MOBOs are now perfectly earthed.

    After the hint of our electrician both old and newer PCs(Motherboards all fully open) are now "perfectly" earthed. I prepaired the plug in the way that only the center plug is active. the other two holes are filled up-cannot takeup contact for currency.
    Maybe i should tryout now an touching or move MOBO to find out if pc will crash?
    line goes to old PC. Old connected with new PC with cable. What do you think if that? Most cables which caused troubles on my feet-space are out of the way. Only printercable there.

    Unperfect earthing before with radiator/heating, maybe due to paint blocking metall-contact. Depending what shoes i had on-normally i havent when working on pc-pc crashed sometimes thank to rubbing over thick carpet. MOBO on a wooden-plate on metallic frame. maybe better seperating metallic base of shelf with rubber-surface. Antistatic "carpet" with earthing line helped at my working place when we had primitive writing-machine Bitsy by Triumph- Adler with 5 1/2 floppy. Black-outs all the time.

    Some paints are fine insulators. Been used in electric motors for years.
