Thanks Gene. I have never had instruction. I have read and understand the
static electricity issue, however, I have never been as careful as you
suggested. I always ground myself on the chassis, however, once that is
done, I have not worried about static electricity. Occasionally I touch the
chassis just to make sure, but, just as a matter of habit. Maybe I have
caused a static problem, but I really don't think so.
I have seen technicians put assorted memory in plastic bags allowing them to
be in contact with eachother. I have also seen that memory function in
another machine. Certainly, I will be more careful now. I am fortunate that
I had my memory for the new computer checked as good after I had handled it
in the manner I have described. I hope you had a wonderful New Years Day.
