Handling the IBM PCI Audio Adapter

WARNING: Static electricity can damage your equipment. Do not take the card out of its static protective bag until you are ready to work with it.

Follow these precautions when handling the card:

I. Before you open the static protective bag, touch it to a metal expansion slot cover on the back of your computer. This drains static electricity from the package and from your body.

II.Do not touch any exposed printed circuitry after opening the package.

III.Keep other people from touching the card. They might have a static-electricity build-up.

IV.

Limit your movement. Movement causes a build-up of static electricity.
