I think that after any of us pass trough these crisis we can laugh a bit at them.
The wors thing ever happened to my Pc is one day that i used a vacuum cleaner to ge rid of the dust but that was too much Static to my Hard Drive ;_;

Worst tragedy....I remember, my PC is totally fried it won't function because its so frickin hot outside, my dad have to put in the fridge for about 30 minutes to operate. Then it got worse XD, I have to put int 1 hour until about a month passed and no matter how much time its in the fridge, it won't operate anymore!

Oh, they me and my dad got 2 more computers. XD Which is kinda a bad thing turning to a good thing.

Sounds like fridges can be used for anything ^___^
My comp got a virus last year....anything in explorer would immediately close, then freeze my computer...then when I restarted my computer, it froze the moment everything loaded...>_<
Now it just occasionally shuts down because there's too much crap on it ^^;

When your hard drive is nearing it's death (the inevitable clicking noise), the best method of recovering the data is to put it in the freezer. No joke. If you put it in there while backing up, it can last up to a day usually :)

I've forgotten my worst tragedy... it was probably accidentally deleting a lot of my sister's university work >.<

Had a server box running dual Athlon64 opteron processors, 1 tb of hdd space, 3gigs of ram, and radeon 9800 pro w/antec500w true powerpsu. all within a koolance h2o cooled case.
Powerburp passed through surge protector and psu, friend 2 hdd's and the water pump, rest of comp friend itself w/out cooling.
Not a fun event nor time.

Also in the past my pc had harddrives fail on me, all 150gig+ hdd's full of anime/music/art/car stuff, etc most stuff irreplaceable. >_<
Really no fun when stuff fails and dies horribly and takes all your stuff along w/it....

Wow that really sux, I think if I had that kind of money to build suck a beefy pc, I wouldn't settle for a simple surge protector, you should have gone with a nice UPS.

My friend was building his computer and it wouldn't work, he tried going back to the store buying a new motherboard and what not and it all turned out that he had messed with the jumpers.

When I built my first computer 5 years ago I had a 4Gb Western Digital HDD that just died several days after I put system together. The person I bought it from took it thinking I did something wrong and gave me a 6Gb Seagate for $8 more than the cost of the old one. Week later Western Digital put out a recall for 4Gb drives because they were just failling for no reason!

Then about three years ago I up grade my pc's HDD, however it could not see the entire due to the fact that the motherboard could not see more that 32 Gb. So I upgraded the motherboard and the processor to use the entire drive. I bought a Abit KG7 board, fried 3 40Gb drive (replaced by warrenty) before I realized that the Zip 100 drive that I had worked badly with the motherboard in such a way that the pair killed off HDDs like their was no tomorrow!

my worst trajedy was when I shipped my computer through the mail from japan. I had the ace ventura postal guy doing it because they broke one hard drive(the one with all my anime on it!) and damaged a cap i didnt noticed when I turned it on. Resulting in blown moboard, memory, and graphics card. just say i was pissed. to top it all off when I recieved all my household goods they also broke my monsoon speakers which I cant replace because they stopped selling speakers for computers.

Sorry to hear of the dual athlon aswell ‘tis always annoying to lose something so nice

My old computer started getting viruses and I could reboot, explorer would close by itself, warnings would pop up on me, it got supper slow, the spyware was killing me, then it wouldn't connect only (another virus) and last but not least I tried to restart the computer over from the begining and the files compressed so they computer doesn't work -_-;; what a night mare.. but now I have a brand new computer which I'm trying to protect the best I can.

I think the worst thing that happened, happened to my last laptop. We got a new game for it and it froze during the install. We did a hard shut down on it, and rebooted, but it never came back on. It just sat on a screen that kept trying to read the game disk and never budged. We spent hours trying to fix it and ended up having to just reformat the hard drive.

;_; A few months ago, I found out my computer was filled with viruses and that the antivirus that my father installed was totally useless ("Of course it's a good antivirus...you'll never have a single virus!") >.> I must have had about 4-5 viruses...

I lost many pictures, documents and all my favorites/websites. ^_^ Thankfully, all my music, anime and music vids were spared. ^___^ I now have a new computer that doesn't crash every five minute. It's also filled with very pretty pictures *coughcough*yaoi*coughcough* XD

~ *Looking back on the past yrs with my pc* Oh, yeah, I had this pc which I bought a long time ago, and I had this security anti virus program installed. Turns out that I got a virus anyway and a few days later it died on me. *Sigh* I had alot of high school work saved on that, plus some songs and pictures, too. It was sad, really. It was just running fine until the virus came along.
