When i had to go reconnect my Ethernet Cable, I looked behind my computer and everything is fine, but when i touch a bolt. I feel Static going through my finger. I touched another Bolt and its the same so maybe all of them is giving out Static electricity. Is this Hazardist thing?

Yes. Am I correct in assuming that you are plugged into the wall when doing this? It sounds like something is grounded to your case...not good. You might want to quit touching the case until you gigure out the problem. Did you recently have any service work done on the system?

I am very happy to hear that you didn't fry your computer in the process.
