I think I have a static electricity problem.
I have two computers in my house and a fiancé that wears fuzzy socks. Sometimes, when she plugs in USB devices into the front ports of her desktop computer (or my computer), the computer will instantly lock up. Often the LCD will go a solid green or purple color after this happens.
She noticed this occurs most often after walking across the carpets, so I am confident that the front USB ports on both of our computers are not properly grounded. I checked USB port connections to the motherboard and the ground wire is mapped properly on all computers.
Is there anything I can do to add extra/proper grounding to the front USB ports on a computer? I am afraid that she is going plug in her iPod one day and poof, her entire motherboard will be fried.
