    can signs of static damage be identified?

    I get that, but you do have a difference as I stated. You're generating energy from movement. You are no longer at the same potential for a moment of time. Because you're holding something at least somewhat conductive, it's instantly discharged, thus the board is having additional energy being applied. So whatever you have stored in your person at the time of generating static electricity is now discharged to the board, and if you're continuously walking around, you are continuously adding energy.

    Why doesn't my PC boot directly to Win 10?

    I have to sign in to view your photos. Can you post them directly here using the upload feature?

    Why doesn't my PC boot directly to Win 10?

    Can you send a photo of all your boot devices that show up in the UEFI? It's a bit bizarre that you would have to manually select Windows 10 every time. Do you have any other OSes installed? Or have you had more than one installed at one point?

    Why doesn't my PC boot directly to Win 10?

    It's an option within your UEFI in the Boot section. It should be something called Hard Drive BBS Properties. It allows you to change your boot device.

    What options do you have in your Hard Drive BBS Properties?

    What motherboard do you have?

    Indeed. I personally hate their military marketing BS. Although I hate it whenever any company uses it as a selling point.

    broke three pins on my cpu

    It's not unheard of for that to occur. Some pins are redundant, and some are used only for grounding. And considering you can pump a lot of power through CPUs from overclocking, breaking off some power pins may not harm performance immediately, but may limit overclocking in the future, if you push it far enough. So yeah, what you're experiencing is not unexpected with the way things are designed.

    If you're generating a charge from movement, then it would immediately discharge to anything conductive enough, which would be the motherboard in this instance. I'm not sure what your point is.

    can signs of static damage be identified?

    My workplace(military) keeps humidity above a certain point, grounds all the tables and floors, and then of course we have to be grounded as well. Also, we use ESD containers for our solvents and trash cans. Some might say that's going too far lol.

    can signs of static damage be identified?

    Even there, you can still do some damage. I imagine this is why companies, like my workplace, take great precautions against it. Gamers Nexus claims to have killed a board with static electricity just from walking around with it across carpet. Mind you, it wasn't immediate, but over time. And that's the thing. Even if you keep voltages low, it will still do damage over time. I don't know what video it was where Steve said that, but it wasn't a video specifically about static electricity.

    can signs of static damage be identified?

    Tell that to our research done on static electricity.

    can signs of static damage be identified?

    That's how it kills components. High voltage. So the idea that it can't kill something is wrong. Yes, it does dissipate, but you generate static electricity just from moving around with your clothing.

    can signs of static damage be identified?

    Most of the time, damage caused by ESD is not detectable for a long time, after using it for a while for many years unless it was straight up killed right at that moment. Electronics nowadays though are resistant to the effects of static electricity, with components added specifically to absorb the charge.

    Vista HDD in new computer

    It should be able to boot off of the standard boot drive already present. Don't boot off of the Vista drive. It most likely will not work as you have experienced.
