nope its the same

i got a tester screwdriver and starting looking around and i even found that the metal part of my monitor (vga output) has electrity on it so im asuming this is a 100% grounding problem

i live on an old apartement like 1990 fbm

Ok with this you are on your own. I said my peace on this matter, you obviously are not listening.

Been thinking about this.

To recap; you only get shocked when the PC is plugged into certain receptacle(s). You only get shocked when barefoot. You get shocked in certain rooms, but not in others. The comment about getting shocked when touching the PC and a wall is curious, as the wall should not present a path to ground, nor should the floor. Unless, it is static discharge.

It sounds as if the receptacle may be incorrectly wired, with the ungrounded phase conductor (hot) going to the grounded phase conductor (neutral) terminal of the power supply.
