I RECENTLY LOST MY COMPUTOR SERVER WHICH IS ON COMCAST WHEN COMCAST CAME OUT THEY SAID THERE WAS 45 TO 50 VOLTS ON THE GROUND WHAT WOULD CAUSE THIS, THE SERVICE HAS A WATER PIPE AND GROUND ROD GROUND AT THE MAIN AND COMCAST TAPPED OFF THE WATER PIPE.
Check the equipment ground on your caps lock. Otherwise call an electrician quickly.... And pay them to make repairs. You may have a dangerous situation that can destroy electrical items, cause shocks, or worse.

I'm not clear as the two points between which the measurement was made. I assume one was at the ground on the outlet powering the server, but when you say Comcast "tapped off the water pipe" do you mean that was the reference point used?
If the water pipe is properly bonded and at ground potential, then it might just be a bad equipment ground to the receptacle in question. Or maybe it's a replacement for an older 2-wire outlet which never had a ground in the first place?
