YEAH LIKE FWJS SAIS YOU DONT NEED TO OPEN CPU FOR THAT JUST KEEP TOCHING METAL AFTER YOU GO IN SIDE THE COMPUTER AND TOUCH ANYTHING THAT WILL DAMAGE IT YOU WILL BE ON SHOUS AND COMPUTER UNPLUGED TOUCH METAL EXAMPLE LIKE THE CASE OF THE COMPUTER YOU PUT ONE HAND IN THE CASE AND WITH YOUR OTHER HAND YOU CAN TOUCH THE COMPUTER INSIDE JUST BE CAEFULL WITH THE MEMORY PINS JUST SLIDE IT IN AND YOU WILL HERE THE CLIP.

Just keep touching the metal case, thats what I do and I work in my computers on my carpet, lol, ironic, nothing has ever fried on me......well a motherboard did but I wasnt working on it, it just quit........

I've never had a problem, or known anyone else to with a simple job like replacing memory (no wristband). I concur with the previous two answers. L

you dont open a cpu to add ram, you open the case...truthfully you dont need anti static bands as long as the computer is unplugged and you DONT touch any circuits..

Conductive wrist band (twist one end of a bare wire around your wrist, or use beaded metal chain). Wire from there to a 1Megohm resistor (limits current for safety). Wire from the other side of the resistor to ground. My own solution is to just keep one hand on the PC's case at all times. If I'm already grounded to it, I can't build up a static charge relative to it.
