No!  Not no, but hell no!  Dry, the eraser can and will generate local static 
charges of several thousand volts, further damaging the memory.  Simply 
exercising the memory out of the socket and back in should take care of the 
problem if indeed that is it.

My experience comes from nearly 60 of my 74 years, chasing electrons for a 
living.  I am a C.E.T. since 1972, and a broadcast engineer since 1964, and 
have been making a living fixing electronics since about 1949.

Yeah, now I'm a genuine old fart. :) Almost retired for several years, CE at 
WDTV-5 from 1984 to mid 2002, and my phone still rings when TSHTF.  I'll 
likely never be more than 'almost' retired till I fall over for good.  I have 
no intention of doing that, but I'm also diabetic, which says I'm at a high 

Cheers, Gene
