I'm surprised you haven't shocked your entire system to death. Are you sure your video card is seated properly? Shut down your computer, unplug the power from the wall, and re-seat your video card. Don't touch ANY components of a computer while it's on. You could possibly kill yourself - start a fire - kill all your components in your computer. m 0 l esrever a c 92 U Graphics card March 19, 2012 9:15:40 PM do you have your card screwed in? m 0 l Related resources Hard drive problem or its just normal? - Forum I5 stock fan problem, or is it normal? - Forum Wired conection problem, Ping request 1-3 min, then is back to normal. - Forum PSU Problems - Is this Normal? - Forum OS boot problem and bios takes more than normal to load - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Just touching a circuit board you probley wouldn't feel anything because of low voltage, but you could have shorted out something. Or worse caused your system to fry. It takes less than an amp to kill some one. When your PSU is pushing 15a to 20a on the 12v rail if that hits you, you could be pushing daisys. I would do what was suggested above and reseat it and if it isn't broken then don't fix it. In other words don't play with it before you brake it. Good luck to you. m 0 l kitsunestarwind a b U Graphics card March 20, 2012 5:11:34 AM It may take less then one amp to kill someone, but 12v or less which is inside a PC is not going to do it, takes a lot more then that to cross our skins natural resistance. But on the other hand it takes a tiny short to fry any circuitry, though more then likely that will not happen unless you have wet/damp hands once again due to high skin resistance. More then likely u are just slight unseating the card and causing it to have loss of connection issues m 0 l GI_JONES a b U Graphics card March 20, 2012 5:38:43 AM When I stick my finger into my cpu fan..it stops spinning, and it hurts, is this normal?.
