just a word of caution.
Never ever touch any computer part without being grounded.
I know a lot of geeks brag about how they never do it, and nothing ever happened.
Fact is they have no clue. Many bsod's are caused by damaged electronics.
When you look at the prints and chips through a microscope after they have been touched by a statically charged user, it looks like a bunch of comets impacted on it.
This might have happened with the disk, but it might also be a monday morning model.
