Grounding is a precaution, it's not required if you handle parts properly and to be honest it's less likely to fry parts than it was over two decades ago. (or if you're an idiot who rubs your feet over carpet)
Because I can't see anything, I can't suggest anything. You'll need to take pictures of the inside, but a perfectly clear shot of the entire motherboard
is really all that's necessary.
