I have no idea where your static electricity is coming from but yes it can cause computer damage.

Try your head phones in another computer and see if the problems is still their.

Do you have a qualified person that can check the ground circuit on the wall socket?

Sooner or later all ground start and end up at the power ground.

Never, NEVER use a ungrounded cord or plug of any kind to plug any Electronics into.

The only way to know if your system has been damaged is to just use it and see if any problems arise.
