Is it safe to use a magnetic screwdriver near electronics (like laptops or smartphones)?This is a question for all you IT geeks out there. I'm replacing the cooling fan on my laptop and I was just worried I was just worried about wiping out the memory or something like that.
I've used magnetic screwdrivers in building computers, with no problem. I've never tinkered with a laptop, however.Really, my advice is to go for it, but not to tinker with the hard drive with it.
IWANTFROYO sounds like he is giving good advice. Be sure you are grounded though to avoid a static charge that can damage components.
