Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)

Static electricity, a normal and natural phenomenon, builds up on your body

as you walk around. You experience an electrostatic discharge (ESD) when

you touch an object and feel a spark. ESD can cause damage to the

internal components of your computer.

To avoid ESD damage, read and follow all instructions. If a grounding wrist

strap is included with your memory, refer to the instructions included for

how to ground and use the strap.
