LOL, slapping sometimes DOES help with stuff like that. When the old tv of my gramps was showing the colours incorrect (all was very green) all we needed to do was hit it hard and it would turn normal :)
Gah, I broke a cd-rw, 52x Cd-rom, and the fan on my old 700mhz machine by slapping it because the fan was really loud :p

If I did that when my DC would've made noise it would've been as flat as a PSone :rolleyes:

My DC fan made way more noise that it should've. From the moment I bought it in july 2003. And just a week ago I was installing some new hardware in my pc, which made a lot of noise as well. And I decided to oil the fan a bit. And since I was doing that with my PC, I decided I could try the same with my DC fan. And I used quite a lot of oil, but now it's really silent :yippee: The way it should always have been :p

So take this as advice for the next time ;)

My favorite memory of computer destruction happened last night. One of my suite mate's computers was broken beyond all repair, so we walked out on top of the 4th floor's roof, and dropped it down on to the asphalt. Needless to say... it didn't survive.

Another good story is when I worked at EchoStar over the summer. We shipped a PC to Europe for one of the groups there to use (it had all the software they needed preinstalled). We get a call about a week after we ship it. They received the PC, but the chassis was all bent out of shape, and it had dents. So the guy who called us (Nygel), bent the chassis back into shape, plugged it in (after changing the PSU's Voltage), and it worked like a charm. Amazing what a Dell GX110 can take.
