Agreed. The static shock, caused by touching electronics without properly grounding yourself and discharging any built up static, will in some cases blow out the Southbridge Controller - or some portion of it. (The LAN chip runs off the southbridge). Particularly on a motherboard with poor grounding circuits in it's design.

Don't ask me how I know this!

You're amazing dude, honestly.
So, I will buy a PCI Network Card tomorrow and see what's happening..I will let you know!

PS: The HDD wipe was wasted my time but I earned the money for the network card A friend of mine told me that he bets the wipe would fix the case, and he bets to buy the card for me if he looses. And he lost it, so free card tomorrow
