Default I need to ruin a computer without it being known.

We work at a company where they wont replace our crappy old computer unless it completely broken down. What are some ways we can ruin our computer without being caught? We've tried magnets on the hard drive, but its not working. We need to ruin the mother board, and possibly the hard drive. Any help would be appreciated.

I know its a ridiculous question, but I'm dead serious. And apparently, saying that I need to do it without getting caught meant using a sledge hammer would be a great idea. Thanks for the input, but i'll hold out for more.

Um.. don't know this is the right place to be asking this stuff, if you were to wreck it, im sure they would find a way to fix it for cheaper than having to buy new computer's.

ok are you allowed to take the pc cover off? if so, then take some of these off the pins on the motherboard.

turn off the computer, scoot around a carpet floor on your ass until you are charged with static electricity then touch the motherboard. Repeat the process to make sure you fried it.

Lol....i answered that question seriously

It shouldn't, unless there is a power surge.

Edit: Try a magnet to the hard drive, sneak some water inside the computer, or pull off a capacitor.
