Well, thank you for that. As I said, it also resets when I plug headphones or a mic in. This case is painted before it is assembled. When I check continuity with a meter, each section is electrically isolated. Even though the remote USB/accessory plug that plugs into the mother board has a shielded ground connector I fear that it doesn't work since the power supply is, as is everything in this case, also isolated from the main board metal of the case. The USB connector, when I get it plugged in without "shocking" the floating plug, works just fine.
