HAF tower will restart if USB port in bumbed.

I have this tower: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119225&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-pla-_-NA-_-NA


Where the front panel USB port is on the computer if i have a device plugged into it some times if i bump it will restart my computer like it shorted out.

I have also hooked up my camera to download pictures to my computer and it will also "sometimes" restart my computer.

The USB ports are really sensitive and I don't know why.

    I had a similar problem with a Thermaltake Sword LCS case - the module that houses the USB ports had a short circuit - the metal housing of the usb and the case would short out the machine and cause a reboot any time I touched the USB port. It' likely you have the same issue - contact the manufacturer and get a new front USB module - pretty easy to swap out usually. Good Luck
