Default Whats the noobiest thing you have ever done...

What is the noobiest/most stupid thing you have ever done with your computer, stuff that you look back at and go...omg I was stupid... and just laugh at yourself?

Mine was prob putting CPU, mobo and hard drive on carpet, and running my CPU without a fan, because it was too noisy lol...

Oh and ive put PCI, AGP cards in while the PC is running, and taken them out again, lmao!

Naa, it dont suck

Its good you can pick up any 'noob' actions tho, i mean i bet Mr Gates himself has done some bad.. stupid things in hes life, wither it be building computers or err ..other stuff lol But we're human come on
Just 'can look back on it and learn and most of all laugh!

My most noobish wouldnt be building a computer still have'nt as of yet(ha, wonder why!) but when doing hands on things, like opening up comp looking around, attempting ...well trying, etc. mine would be the time i took out my hard drive it was like i was handling a egg and with it in my hands i was like 'OMG what do i do now, ive only got one hand to hold it with then try and put another one in where it was', and talking of that the funny(sad) thing is i never could do it HAHA! PLus i couldnt get it to stay and the cords were a rightful pain in the butt ! gah..
So there we go i cant deal with that just yet, i think im too careful, like overboard.. im like that with some things lol.....Im hopeless
I need to work more on my confidence tho...

*Wins biggest noob award already*

Mine was, when I was working with my 486, I was looking at a flyer and I saw Windows XP with a stick of DDR266 RAM. I was like: OK, now I will buy this thing and Iwill put it in my computer will run Windows XP. Amemory stick running Windows XP...Ok...

Another one was: Sound card works better than speakers...yeah, my butt

Another one would be: When Windows 3.1 said: Error charging Display.drv, I said, I must have scratched the big thing. I threw it out. My IBM machine was gone.

When I was helping a friend build a computer and it would install windows twice and then wouldn't work anymore...luckily I figured out it was a faulty CD-ROM.

Many Many things, so many times I have had to reformat because I was playing around with settings, deleting all my music collection 22gigs worth, and other silly stuff like that..

I learn from the mistakes though so its all good......
