Episode 1581

Ann from Jackson County, GA

Ann is frustrated because she can't send email, while her family can. Her computers will also bluescreen when she touches the keyboard. And it doesn't matter what device she touches. What is happening?  Leo says that static electricity can cause issues like this. So make sure you're grounded by touching metal. Computer technicians use a grounding bracelet.

But that is a very uncommon thing to happen.
