Be very careful when handling internal parts that you do not
static zap them. Avoid staticky clothes, carpets etc.
Ground yourself to a water pipe, grounded metal appliance or
even the ground pin of a wall socket just before proceeding.

damage the microchips inside a PC.

difficult to plug them back in.
Any physical damage, tearing or abrasion to the ribbon on
the new keyboard will permanently destroy it.
