As an A+ technician while practising on a compter I found an electrical current with a tester flowing on the chasis of an At motherboard computer. I tried to figure out if there is a fault with the power supply  or a wrong connection. But there is non and the motherboard and all the systems of the computer are working well. Is it normal to find a current flowing on the chasis of a computer?

I will be thankful for your help by explaining this phenomenon.

The chassis is tied to power supply ground.  You did not explain your physical method of measuring so it is hard to say.  However a computer basically is just a large series-parallel DC circuit and is also affected by lots of magnetic induction from signals.  Read up on series-parallel and you will have your answer.
