Reassembled my pc for cleaning. Mounted the mobo to the case. Mounted cpu fan and connected atx power and cpu power. Just I was going to start the pc to check for post, I touched the cpu heat sink and got a continuous shock(not static) . Immediately turned down the power. Has the damage been done or is it fixable.

Tried to start the system despite this and it works. Posts and everything but it says that my windows is corrupted. I was using a power cable without the earth pin because the cable provided was too short. However, this issue never happened. Can anyone explain why? Now I am using the short cable with the earth pin and the problem seems to have been fixed. However I am curious on why it started happening now.
