Read instructions. Do not force, do not work on carpet. Work on wood or a ping pong table etc.

god luck!

yeah just keep it off the carpet. grab the metal in your case to ground yourself then follow instructions you get with your mobo and everything. When you fasten the MOBO make sure its secure but dont overtighten it.

You'll find most info you need in your MoBo manual, actually (prolly no need to remember where everything goes on your old motherboard). Otherwise there is always the forums for when you get stuck! And post photos!
