Most commen method is a grounding wrist starp of decent quality.

Another is a clear working area uncluttered by other items where screws and jumpers may get lost.

Reasonable test eqipment also helps

Insulated screwdrivers

Just the right tools for the job and common sense that you are dealing with sometimes delicate equipment so care and consideration. are needed.

Slim card slot


Not all laptops have a card reader built into them, but if yours has been advertised as having one, look carefully around the perimeter of the case as sometimes they have a protective plastic piece in the slot that protects against damage.

What does a screen guard do on phone? Are they worth buying?


Screen protectors help protect phone screens against scratches and damage. They also help to protect the glass from breaking if it's dropped on the floor.
Some people claim that they don't really work but they aren't too expensive and if they possibly protect your expensive phone from damage, it's worth a try.

Turns on no sound


RF or stray electric fed back to the unit via power cord or cables is most likely-----consider a technician looking at it as the audio output circuit etc may have been damaged---surge protection will not usually protect against this kind of problem.

My fan doesnt seem to be working and laptop just shuts down after it gets hot


Hi, your laptop shuts down as a protection against overheating. It's important that you take the laptop right away to a service repair shop so it can get the fan replaced before other important components get damaged.

This computer system is protected by a password i was forget bios password


This are the steps you can take. I would advise against it, and would suggest taking it to a technician.
1. Disconnect power to the laptop and switch it off.
2. Disassemble the laptop.
3. On the motherboard you will find RTC/CMOS battery similar to the cell that we use in our wrist watch, but of a bigger size.
4. Remove that battery and put it back after 10 seconds.
