Hi DaniWeb experts, good day. :)

Every time I had a customer and if the problem is in the memory. I used to clean it with eraser, and viola, the computer will had a display again.

Someone told me that cleaning a memory using eraser is not advisable. It's because it will fry the RAM chips.

Questions:
1. Is rubbing an eraser to the memory contacts can fry the chips of RAM?
2. Is rubbing an eraser across the connectors will produce a LOT of static electricity?

Do you think that his statements are true?

Honestly I'm a bit doubt with his statement when he told that to me. I've already searched it in Google and found nothing that his statements are true.

Thanks and God bless. :)

i use white eraser and have never had a problem

Any physical strain on a circuit board or it's contacts can damage it. If you're careful it should be fine, just don't do it excessively or when it's not needed.

I always use eraser to clean my memory when my PC don't boot mostly the problem came there.

Ever since it helps me a lot & there were no problems at all.

Or maybe he just want you to buy a new one!
