    Greg is a PC hardware technician. He is working on a user’s PC at the workbench in the IT department. Greg suspects that the NIC in the PC has gone bad and is going to replace it. He has opened the case and removed the old card. He is wearing a wrist strap to guard against ESD but what should he do with the card he’s just removed.



    • Place it in the bottom of the PC case.
    • Place it in the box the new NIC came in
    • Place it on the grounding mat
    • Place it on the top of the PC case

    Well, I suppose he should place it on an anti-static matt, then in an anti static bag and then in an anti-static dustbin [​IMG]

    I would have done C (then B providing that I still had the anti-static bag).

    C

    Sorry for the bullet points, gents. I swear when I copied and pasted the OOTD in, there were the usual letters of the alphabet. :oops:

    Got to say I would of went for B due to having somewhere to store it out of the way. Also the new one should of come in a antistatic bag so it makes sense doesn't it :rolleyes:

    i say C - on the grounding mat. no point putting it away immediately in case its not the NIC thats the problem. but dont wanna put it in the box, since its not anti-static, and if the NIC isnt buggered, it is now!

    on a side note, i found a field engineers anti-static kit in maplin, looks cool, has a big fold up anti-static mat, which cant be a bad thing now can it!

    Correct answer is C. While common sense tells you that the box the new NIC came in must have an anti-static bag, many times, certification tests expect you to adhere strictly to the options you are presented with. Also, let's say you took the old NIC out of the machine before removing the new NIC from its anti-static bag. You only have one bag so it makes sense to not unpack the new card before removing the old one.

    Good one. More later.
