You need to ensure there is no static charge difference between you, your RAM and the laptop and any sort of processor or memory work should be done
with power connector and battery removed.
In a professional workshop, all work would be done at a static station, with wrist straps connected to a special conductive bench top. You can achieve
similar anti-static results by removing any clothing likely to generate static (ie: wool jumpers and syntheticT-shirts) and resting your hand on a
metallic part of the laptop shielding and leaving it in contact with it during the procedure (this provides a path to discharge any potential
