ESD Electro-Static Discharge Actually it stands for Eek System Dead. That is the result of rubbing your feet on the carpet then sticking your fingers into your computers innards. Don't open the back of your computer unless you know what you are doing. The fact that many installations prompt you to open your computer up and do stuff without giving your proper training or instruction is criminal. It is like being given some glue and a hollow plastic tooth by your dentist and being told to just drill out thESD|&|Electronic Software Distribution
