  • It looks really hard to break electronics with human touch ESD. Maybe it's because the cheap electronics don't have small enough circuitry to be as vulnerable? Good protective design and grounding? Perhaps what they taught me in college about ESD on old computers just isn't as relevant to today, but I'd still take precautions just because the parts I want to use today are expensive.

  • When I was working at Microsoft I saw someone fry their computer inserting additional ram. That was actually kind of funny, you would think a person working at Microsoft would have enough sense on the risk of electro static. The rug in that building was so bad, I was shocked on just about every door handle I touched every single day.

  • I've never worn a static strap. I've never shocked a pc or any component to death, i usually rest my forearms on the case before i touch anything inside/while i'm touching things inside. If i see you wearin' a static strap and you're not working on a ridiculously expensive PC or server i'm gonna call you names.

  • This is why I keep my cats away from my PC. They'll want to rub themselves against it or even get close to it, my PC not only risks getting a static shock that basically turns it off and back on, but some fur that my cats shed can find it's way into the PC case and could probably cause some damage. Also I don't know if my PC will blow up or if I'll get horribly shocked one day if static gets to my PC

  • Great video!!! I've been in the habit of touching something metal, like a computer case, before handline any electronics internals. But after working on tens of thousands computer, I don't think I've ever damage a computer part with static, and I never use ESD bands. Take that as you will...

  • Ok guys i need some help. I have a ryzen 2200g with vega 8 apu combo. I am using a Samsung TV (60hz) its a really old TV tbh from like 5+ year ago. One day i was playing, and all sudden my screen got really dull. like 1/2 of the original brightness, i didnt think too much of it since it was late at night and i just turned up game brightness. Next day I found that all applications were much darker, even tho tv brightness was even more than before. THEN I was watching youtube and left it on mainpage for few. When I came back and tuned on a video, i could still see the youtube mainpage, its like a ghost imagine / 'Screen burn'. Ever since that problem happened i get this issue, but ingame everything is perfectly fine, only when i let the tv sit 5mins on same screen it like burns in the imagine. I have done some research and found that cpu/gpu dont cause this problem its cause by the monitor/tv. However just hour ago, same thing happened to my brothers tv, so we are both very sus that its a problem with pc ( more for him since his pc actually turned off, signed him out of microsoft and tried to do a system recovery by itself. He has i7 something so not the same build just same seller.). We both got our pcs premade from ebay, from the same seller, the price was great for what the description included, and overall my experience with the pc is being great compare to what i had on my laptop. I mainly want to ask anyone who might know, can this be a pc issue? I have contacted both the seller, and the warranty company explaining the issue, but i thought id get faster reply here anyway. From my research it points to my old tv ( his tv is similar and old too) I had used it for maybe 4/5 months prior to the issue, now ive used it for another 4 months with the issue thinking its my tv problem all along untill this happened to my brother. (just as i ordered a new monitor lol...) 1 last thing to mention, when i can see the ghosting, if i try to unplug my hdmi cable from tv, turn off the tv and turn it back on without hdmi plugged into pc, i can still see the images burned in, even tho pc is not plugged in, which im 70% confident its tv issue, but now its happened to my brother, I just want to confirm it. Also his ghosting is nowhere near as bad, and goes away with restart. If anyone has any clue or ideas for me to try, i would really appreciate it:)
