okay thanks, i have picked up my hard drive many times before i know about static (this was when im learning about computers and static)
tomorrow i am building my first computer and i was going to use my very olds desktop hard drive. but i've handled it quite alot without grounding myself, do you think it would still works? i dont think i've touched the circuit board much.
okay thanks, also to grounded myself could i put my spare oldish case on the floor and touch it with my feet, would that ground myself? :L sorry if i sound a bit nooby, it's cuz it's my first build and i'm kinda scared about static and messing it up.
