7.2. IMPORTANT THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND

ESD DAMAGE

Electro-Static Discharge (ESD) is a frequent causes of damage to the memory module. ESD is the result of handling the module without first properly grounding yourself and thereby dissipating static electricity from your body or clothing. If you have a grounded wrist strap, wear it. If you don’t, before touching electronic components - especially your new memory module - make sure you first touch an unpainted, grounded metal object. Most convenient is the metal frame inside the computer. In addition, always handle the module by the edges. If ESD damages memory, problems may not show up immediately and may be difficult to diagnose.



Wearing a grounded wrist strap can prevent ESD damage.

SWITCHING OFF THE POWER

Before opening the chassis, always power-off your computer and all attached peripherals. Leaving power on can cause permanent electrical damage to your computer and its components.
