Too prevent static discharge while working on a PC or electronic devices, either use an anti static wrist strap available from any computer or elecronics outlet store or make sure one hand is holding the metal PC casing whilst the other is removing the PCI device. You can also purchase an anti static mat to put the PC on while working on it but these can be expensive. The rule of thumb is to make sure the PC is earthed the entire time you are touching the internal workings, you can also safely work with PCI card install & removal procedure if the PC has been disconnected from its power source for more than four hours, PCI cards generally discharge when the PC is turned off, static discharge will only cause problems with the motherboard and processor if not earthed correctly or physically before removal or installation.

Mother bord bios reset


To Fix, Try to open up your laptop then find cmos battery which you remove for 15 mins and while removed short contacts on motherboard where battery was which should restore default bios.
[Dont forget if shorting battery contacts avoid static electricity.]
Then replace battery in correct orientation and reassemble.

What is the cause for static on my treadmill?


Winter is the time of year we receive calls regarding static electricity primarily on treadmills.In fact, many of the OEMs state they expect a certain amount of static, especially during this time of year.
Listed below are some of the sources which may be responsible for the static problems:
Items that gyms have control over:
  1. Worn motor brushes
  2. Worn belt/deck
  3. Lubrication maintenance
  4. Lack of humidity in air
  5. Dusty climate
  6. Bad ground
  7. Unit should not be on carpet
Suggested Solutions:
  1. If motor brushes are worn, replace
  2. If belt/deck are worn, replace
  3. Always keep belt/deck lubricated
  4. Run humidifiers in gym
  5. Keep equipment as clean and dust free as possible
  6. Check ground of machine (power outlet, power cord, drive motor)
  7. Install a rubber treadmill mat
Items that gyms have NO control over:
  1. Dehydration of user
  2. Dry skin of user
  3. Wool or synthetic materials (nylon, spandex, polyester)
  4. Run pattern of user (shuffling feet vs. smooth stride)
  5. Shoes
Suggested Solutions:
  1. Encourage users to drink more water to avoid dehydration (which results in dry skin)
  2. Encourage users to use lotion and drink more water (less friction with hydrated skin)
  3. Suggest users to wear clothing of natural fibers (cotton)
  4. Suggest change in run pattern
  5. Encourage wearing good fitting shoes (old shoes may be too worn causing friction) and shoes without nylon mesh
It has also been recommended users spray themselves with a product such as Static Guard or mist themselves with a mixture of water and fabric softener to avoid static buildup. Allow for sprayed areas to thoroughly dry before using treadmill.

Instaalling new ram avoiding static problems.


one way to avoid static, is to literally work naked, on a hard floor (avoid carpets), and allways hold a hand on the frame of the case. but, you realy don't need to work naked either, just make sure that you are properly grounded, (hold on to the frame to decharge yourself of static) work without socks, and preferably on wooden floors or similar. Have fun.

Try taking a dryer sheet (like Bounce) and wiping the touch pad with it.
Typically, when the cursor jumps like that, the cause is static electricity. It may be coming from your clothing, your desk or your floor. The dryer sheet eliminates static electricity.

Some techs wear anti-static wrist bands to avoid a problem like yours.
Good luck!
