Before working on the inside of  a computer, you need to ground yourself. If you have ever walked across a carpeted floor, and touch the doorknob. You will remember seeing a spark, for a human no big deal. Do this to a computer and it is like a lightning  bolt hitting the motherboard.  So, to be safe we want to  use a electrostatic discharge strap. Any computer repair shop should have these for around $10.00. It goes around your wrist, there is an alligator clip attached. Clip the alligator clip to a  metal part of the computer. For  laptop use a  a USB port.
