By ground problem, likely it means that there is a difference between the
computer ground and the TV ground. So, in this case you may not have done
anything to the computer but if you plugged the TV in to a different slot or
changed your antenna setup it could explain it.
If you have cable, it could even be that the cable guy came by while you
were not looking and grounded the feed.
I had to run power from my projector to my surround setup to get rid of a
line like that. Now everything is on the same circuit. I also ground my
antenna to that same sub panel.
