This won't happen again, as I moved the location of my desktop. I accidentally touched my desktop and discharged a small amount of static electricity. It immediately turned off. I reboot it ( it asked if I wanted to start it up normally, which I did) and everything seems fine.

What are the odds there isn't some issue that will pop up in a few weeks or months? Is there anyway to check now?

If the static blew up something, it would show immediately. And what you touched is a factor in worrying or not. If you touched your case, you don't have to worry (the case is effective ground).

I touched the case. It concerned me when the pc immediately shut off. Sounds like I don't need to worry.
