USB Problems

I built this system a while ago but just noticed this problem. When I touch (not even plug in, just touch) a usb connector to a port on the front of my computer, my screen goes black. It's almost like its in standby, but the light on the front of the computer isn't blinking and the only way to get it back running is to press the reset button. What could be causing this?

    Static discharge. Attach one end of a copper wire to the exterior metal on the USB port and the other end to the metal on the case frame.
  2. Thanks, I figured it was something like that but I wasn't sure.
