But it may not be the keyboard. First have a look at your computer. How old it ? In fact, start RIGHT from the wall socket itself. Did you ever change out your wall plug, as in upgrade it? If not, move onto the next check….Is your computer connected to a surge protector? If so, how old is that? If wall socket and pc is plugged into the wall, move on to the next check.

Did you build your computer yourself ? If so, then there may be a short at the motherboard source. Reason I say this is because I had a similar problem a with my previous build. If I tried to connect a device, like an external drive, or a usb to any of the USB outlets on my build, my pc would just shut down. . . it was doing a hard reset. I could never figure it out. I thought it might be one of my peripherals, like my keyboard, or my mouse, or my BluRay drive, or even the case perhaps.

It wasn’t my peripherals because I just did a new build and put the same components into my new build. . . . NO issues whatsoever. So it would seem that it was more than likely my mobo. You know the offests that the mobo is sitting on?…those small threaded brass pins that keep the mobo from touching the back plate of the case? Well, if any of those are touching a solder point or other part of the pcb, that would cause a short.

One last thing you can look at as well; Open up your case and take a close look at all your wires. Again, if there is a bare wire that is touching the case in any way, that could cause a short or cause pieces of metal to be "charged". . give you that tingly, electrified feel when you touch the keyboard. Check the wires and plugs of the keyboard itself for any cuts, frays, etc.

Yes, my PC as well as other hardware are plugged into surge protector from Tracer. It’s .. also relatively new; around one year or something. Currently there are three devices connected: PC, Monitor and TV, where monitor also seems to have that problem with its back panel (its metalic parts to be more specific), though it deals more lightning damage and also has a knockback effect, if you know what I mean.

Perhaps that’s where the problem occurs? If the monitor deals damage, then it’s not PC’s fault, as it starts sooner than that – surge protector or previous steps. However, the monitor is connected with PC via DP>HDMI adapter + HDMI cable, so to make sure the problem doesn’t come from the PC, I’ll unplug the HDMI cable and see how it behaves with only the power cable connected…

There, the whole back panel with all the ports (USB etc.) shows positive results when poked with that pen – not even barely- but it shows a solid positive result on the whole surface, as it is all metalic, unlike the monitor, that only the sockets/ports have metalic parts. The back panel of PC electrocutes me more than the keyboard (though back panel on the monitor still takes the win). That panel comes straight from the motherboard asus prime b250-plus. No modifications were made to it, it’s all new and put as it was.
