Default PC on fire!

Yep, I finally took thatPentium 75MHZ machine, tried it and wouldn't power correctly..so it's fried.

Tonight, it was fire time. Gas, newspaper, lighter...PC.

I dipped the news paper in the gas tank, my mate poured on in the PC. Lighted up the news paper, dump in PC...wham! On fire. Then, 5 secs later...POWPOWPOW! Capacitors, all hardware being burned...WOW. That's the first PC ever burned.

The CPU in it was intact...a 133MHZ chip not capable to go there.
Took it out...slammed on the ground...sheds in pieces.

This used to be a CD drive, and it actually worked prior to the incident



These used to be working hard drives, prior to the drivekiller
