• Prevent others from touching parts and other computer components.
• Before replacing a new part, first place the anti-static packaging containing the
part against a metal expansion slot cover or other unpainted metal surface on
the computer for at least two seconds. This will reduce static electricity in the
package and your body.
• When possible, remove the new part from its anti-static packaging and install it
directly into the computer without setting the part down. If this is not possible,
place the part on top of its anti-static packaging on a smooth, flat surface
before installing it.
• Do not place parts on the computer cover or other metal surface.
