Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage your processor, disk drives, expansion boards, and other components. Always observe the following precautions before you install a system component:
Do not remove a component from its protective packaging until you are ready to install it.
Wear a wrist strap and attach it to the system chassis ground or to any metal part of the system before handling components or working in the interior compartment of the workstation.
Turn off the power switch on the back of the chassis.
