One of my friend has a 4 year old P3 celeron 1.3GHz, Now he is getting shock from the case ,so he decided to change the case to a new cheaper one, Is that shock is the problem of the case or psu,Or a case change will help him to prevent shock? Please recomend some cheap cases(I need Small cases,Not htpc)Cases like iball pride!

Thanks

It could be either. It could also be an improperly grounded wall outlet.

That is what I would check first. Simply move the computer to a friend's house to test.

So - the computer worked in the old house - yes? It does not work properly in the new house, yes?

If both are true, what changed?

That's no guarantee that the wall outlet the PC uses was wired correctly.

Have your friend try his computer in your house.

Get a circuit tester or multimeter to test if the outlet is properly grounded.

Just because you and "the electrition dig the hole for the earth pipe!" doesn't guarantee it's grounded.

Please be careful!

Neither. It's something called a "floating ground".
