Computer motherboards and expansion cards contain very delicate Integrated Circuit (IC) chips. leads or connectors. Be careful. do not become alarmed you can still attach the spacers to the mounting holes. power connector on the motherboard. Use a grounded wrist strap before handling computer components. Hold components by the edges and try not touch the IC chips. 5. you should follow some precautions whenever you work on your computer. but they don’t line up with the holes on the base and there are no slots to attach the spacers. If you do not have one. Ensure that the ATX power supply is switched off before you plug in or remove the ATX 3. Unplug your computer when working on the inside. In this way you can still attach the motherboard to the base without worrying about short circuits. Installing the motherboard to the chassis… If the motherboard has mounting holes. or other components. Just cut the bottom portion of the spacers (the spacer may be a little hard to cut off. 2. touch both of your hands to a safely grounded object or to a metal object. because the circuit wire may be near by the hole. so be careful of your hands). 4. don’t let the screw contact any printed circuit write or parts on the PCB that are near the fixing hole. such as the power supply case. 4 . Place components on a grounded antistatic pad or on the bag that came with the components whenever the components are separated from the system. otherwise it may damage the board or cause board malfunctioning.
