The spike suppressors will not eliminate the earthing issue. First of all, check your system. Is any part of the motherboard PCB touching the chassis. Re check the wiring. Else call a qualified electrician and get the supply earthed. I had this same issue, and discovered that my flat was not 'earthed'. To make do, I got my PSU supply socket earthed to insure my system is free from leak current.

it is smps common problem, only solution is to get your house wiring checked. earth terminal of power socket should have proper earthing.

Yes it is. The motherboard circuits and CPU chips are sensitive to external electrical surge.
