Thank you, I'll be sure to keep your advice in mind while handling my PSU. I'm horribly new at this, so my trepidation can be understood. I don't want to make my problems any worse. My home is mostly tiled; we had carpets removed, save for the bedrooms. The halls, the livingroom - everything, tiled. Is there anything I could touch to either remove or minimize any existing static charge within me? I'm sorry if this sounds or seemed worded like a silly question. I'm trying to communicate my concerns as simply as I am able. I'm not ESL.
