It may remain one of lifes mysteries as to why this happened, the connection on the MB may have been loose and without physically checking it you will not know so for peace of mind you could open the case and check, other than that you could check in the BIOS you should be able to disable the Chassis Intrusion feature there.

He's checking the connections now, though everything seems to be tight so far.

Assuming no one (or thing) was inside the case moving wires between the case and motherboard around, I suspect he needs a new CMOS battery. At least, that is what I would try first, if it happens again.

Before removing the old battery, make sure computer is unplugged from wall, and you touch bare metal of the case interior before reaching in. I recommend taking the battery with you to the store as most battery counters recycle.

Sometimes, dusty interior may cause some static and that may trigger the alarm.
Hope this helps!

That's a new one - got a link? Certainly, dust inside the case is bad because it acts like a heat trapping blanket. And rapidly moving dust particles banging into each other and other things can create static. But I don't see moving dust inside a case causing static because all the parts are tied to a common ground - thus preventing a difference of potential (static buildup).

Not unless physically damaged. Any computer shop will have jumpers laying around.
Do jumpers go bad by any chance?
