C) When handling hard drives, make sure you use anti-static gloves so as not to create a charged surface from your hands. D) Always wear anti-static gloves when handling cards, motherboards, or drives.

Answer: A) Make sure you use a grounded wrist strap to avoid static electricity. B) Handle the motherboard by its edges only and never touch any components on it. C) When handling hard drives, make sure you use anti-static gloves so as not to create a charged surface from your hands. D) Always wear anti-static gloves when handling cards, motherboards, or drives.

Explanation: The grounded wrist strap will help protect the user from static electricity.

Handling motherboards, cards or drives should be done by their edges only and never touched any components on them as this could damage the device. Anti-static gloves are used when handling hard drives to avoid creating a charged surface from your hands which may result in data loss of a computer system. C) When handling hard drives, make sure you use anti-static gloves so as not to create a charged surface from your hands is an unsafe practice because it’s possible for electrostatically charged particles to fly off the drive platters and destroy other nearby devices like processors or RAM modules if they come into contact with these parts directly through air flow during normal operation.

The correct answer is C) When handling hard drives, make sure you use anti-static gloves so as not to create a charged surface from your hands is an unsafe practice because it’s possible for electrostatically charged particles to fly off the drive platters and destroy other nearby devices like processors or RAM modules if they come into contact with these parts directly through air flow during normal operation. However, there are many things that one needs to consider in order avoid data loss due to improperly handling motherboards, cards and/or drives. Handling motherboards should be done by their edges only and never touched any components on them as this could damage the device. Anti-static gloves are used when handling hard drives in order to avoid creating a charged surface.

In the event that a hard drive or any other device is dropped, it should be left in place and not moved.

You should never touch anything while you’re handling these devices as this could create an electrostatic discharge on your body which can then go back to destroy another component of the device. Data loss due to improper handling of motherboards, cards or drives are usually due to mishandling during installation (ie installing without anti-static gloves), damaging parts inside with liquids (accidental spills) making contact with some conductive material like metal screws – even if they don’t have voltage applied at time of contact will cause permanent damage. It’s also possible for data loss from improper handling when moving equipment such as racks holding servers, because the components of the rack are electrically connected.

Steps: Data loss due to improper handling of motherboards, cards or drives are usually due to mishandling during installation (ie installing without anti-static gloves), damaging parts inside with liquids (accidental spills) making contact with some conductive material like metal screws – even if they don’t have voltage applied at time of contact will cause permanent damage. It’s also possible for data loss from improper handling when moving equipment such as racks holding servers, because the components of the rack are electrically connected. These steps should be followed every single time you need to handle any component that is plugged into an outlet and has power running through it so you can keep your devices in top condition and avoid data loss.

Incorrect: boards, cards or drives are usually due to mishandling during installation (ie installing without anti-static gloves), damaging parts inside with liquids (accidental spills) making contact with some conductive material like metal screws

even if they don’t have voltage applied at time of contact will cause permanent damage. It’s also possible for data loss from improper handling when moving equipment such as racks holding servers, because the components of the rack are electrically connected. These steps should be followed every single time you need to handle any component that is plugged into an outlet and has power running through it so you can keep your devices in top condition and avoid data loss. Correct: Boards, Cards or Drives are not generally damaged by static electricity.

The anti-static gloves are a must for any computer technician . You’ve heard the horror stories of boards, cards, or drives being damaged by static electricity (whether you believe it’s possible or not). It could be as simple as walking across the room and touching your monitor screen – that would cause enough charge to damage components inside your devi

ce from electrostatic discharge (ESD)(even if they don’t have voltage applied at time of contact will cause permanent damage) .It’s also possible for data loss from improper handling when moving equipment such as racks holding servers, because the components of the rack are electrically connected. These steps should be followed every single time you need to handle any component that is plugged into an outlet and needs to be moved.

Shut down the system and unplug it from power before touching any component that is plugged into an outlet

Handle all components by their edges and don’t touch any connections on them or put your fingers inside of a card slot, drive bay, etc.(ESD)

If you have to move equipment such as servers in racks take extra precautions for ESD: -Ground yourself with a grounded wrist strap (a good idea even if not moving anything)(ESD)

Don’t wear clothing with high static build up(such as nylon), especially while handling electronics since they’ll get attracted straight to your clothes instead of dissipating away from you. Wear antistatic shoes when possible.

Don’t touch any connection or inside of a card slot, drive bay, etc. (ESD)

This is where you might want to insert some bullet points such as:

What are the risks of not following these guidelines? -Static electricity will discharge into your body and can cause damage to internal components in equipment causing them to fail prematurely

How do I protect myself from this risk? Handle all components by their edges and don’t touch any connections on them or put your fingers inside of a card slot, drive bay, etc.(ESD) Shut down the system and unplug it from power before touching any component that is plugged into an outlet(ESD)

Keep all components in their original packaging for protection(ESD) Use an antistatic mat or ground yourself before handling any component (ESD). Do not eat, drink, smoke, chew gum, use a cell phone while working with electronics. This is where you might want to insert some bullet points such as: What are the risks of not following these guidelines? -Static electricity will discharge into your body and can cause damage to internal components in equipment causing them to fail prematurely How do I protect myself from this risk? Follow safe practices like touching metal surfaces before handling sensitive electronic parts and always follow recommended maintenance routines when dealing with circuit boards. This includes taking care never to touch live electrical contacts
