How are the internal components of a computer protected against ESD?

  • by using computer cases made out of plastic or aluminum
  • by unplugging the computer after use
  • by grounding the internal components via attachment to the case
  • by using multiple fans to move warm air through the case

Explanation: Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can occur when there is a buildup of an electric charge (static electricity) on a surface which comes into contact with another. This can be mitigated by grounding the internal components of the computer to the case.
