I have a geek squad back up battery and two surge protectors. No matter how I have my monitor or power supply plugged in they leak a lot electro static energy.

Plugging things into my power supply doesn't cause them to leak power. But my power supply leaks power through its screws and parts of it's case. I've mitigated that issue. As long as nothing metal directly touches my power supply it's fine. I made sure nothing metal touches my power supply. But when I have my gpu plugged into my monitor my gpu leaks power. Even when my power supply is unplugged. My power supply has nothing to do with my monitor or gpu leaking power.

What do I do? How do I ground my gpu and or monitor? Again my power supply leaks power but that would hardly be a problem at all if I had plastic screws. The biggest problem is that my monitor leaks power independently of my power supply and it causes my gpu to leak power. How do I fix this? Surge protectors don't fix this.

The following is from one of the numerous forums that the OP has also post this;

This is a safety issue, as in someone could potentially be killed. You need a certified electrician to take a look and make the necessary repairs immediately, if not sooner.

You're posting from Tombstone, which is rather apt considering the issue at hand.
