New theory/story: Stray electricity in circuits ?

  1. Hello,

    What is known about stray electricity in (computer related) circuits ?

    Is there a special electronics term for this phenomenon ? Leakage
    maybe ?

    When one turns on the power is there a risk of stray electricity going
    through the circuits and possibly damaging something ?

    Could stray electricity even occur during a "soft/warm" reset ?

    So new theory/story:

    Stray electricity occured during a few "hard/cold" power off-on's, or
    possible a few "soft/warm" resets and damaged something ?!

    Good idea, but if you did it you would have no need for a keyboard.
    Pretty please?

    It's not stray electricity, it's a crap motherboard. Give it up.

    Is there a reward for finding any stray electricity ? Who do I send it back to

    It was probably a fine motherboard until he got his hands on it.

    But not totally stupid. You must know that without a good filter AC can
    piggyback on DC?

    Please. Don't try to turn this into actual technical discussion. This
    *pathetic* chump clearly finds public self-flagellation is some form of
    entertainment, and there's nothing technical about that...

    What happens is that when a bunch of electrons have troubles going
    around a corner, some get lost and wind up getting lost.
    They get dizzy and stop, causing what we call "static electricity";
    even cats do not like this!
    And this happens with sweaters (hot) or without sweaters (cold).

    One of the motherboard's jobs is to tag each electron as it comes out of
    the power supply with a unique ID. On the return line the motherboard
    checks the IDs of the returning electrons to see if they match. You would
    be able to check this for yourself if you weren't such a fuckwit.

    THe term is "Crosstalk".

    And no, it's got nothing to do with this power issue you have.

    Funny while it lasted but now you really are an irritating, babbelende idoot
    Blocked you and you nonsense, hope everybody else does too and that the rest

    There are all sorts of effects going on around circuits.
    Electromagnetic induction from other wires, coils etc.
    Particles from outer space.
