Default Re: What is the stupidest thing you have done to your computer?

Well, first Winzip closed after it went through about 200 files and said it experienced a fatal error. Then my background and taskbar went away -- when I rebooted the chkdisk thing went CRAZY, so I rebooted again and skipped it. It actually loaded windows, but with no icons, taskbar, windows, or background... My dad made me sign a contract that said I wouldn't screw around with the family computer anymore.. hahaha

Stealing the mouse balls and rearranging the keys on the keyboard? That really is stupid stuff.

Ever since then, its had this single horizontal line that travels up and down the screen at random.

I think I screwed with the refresh rate. Haha

Turned on the PC without a heatsink/fan... the computer stopped before the processor burned up (thank goodness).

I did that exact thing but instead of a line the whole screen looks green.

Once I had my computer open and didn't notice it was connected and on, I plugged a power cable in a new CD burner. Little sparks here and there, the computer went off and sounded really weird. I connected the CD burner correctly and checked, turned on and thankfully nothing had happened .
