Procedure

1. Touch a metal surface on the inside of the keyboard well to discharge any static electricity.

Important: To avoid electrostatic discharge damage, always ground yourself by touching the computer's framework before you touch any parts or install any components inside the computer. To avoid static electricity building back up in your body, do not walk around the room until you have completed the installation and closed the computer.
