. . .maybe this would be a good place to share some Fatal Distractions and Brain Dead muck ups!

Here's one of my latest; WTF ~ LOL ~ OMG (dupid computer)

. . .I'm lucky I didn't fry my board!!

"Avoid clearing the CMOS while the system is on; it will damage the . . ."

I'm still laughing 'bout that one ~ funny thing was ~ (that I didn't mention)

. . . the day before, when I couldn't boot my system, I packed it up and went to my 'neighborhood' PC shop to see if they could get it up and running ~ but, I was so brain dead ~ I forgot it was Sunday! and they were Closed ~ lol ~

[good thing, . . .I would have felt 'really' dupid 'bout the jumper being set to the 'wrong' connecter]

What's got me worried now, too, is the USB mishaps

. . .is my poor tortured, slammed and abused USB game pad gonna kill my PC?

yikes!!   :angry9:

rofl...dude, i'm not calling you an idiot by any stretch, but why the hell did you plug in a hd while the thing was on??  :haha: :haha: I was laughing my donkey off reading that

It's not as bad as it sounds... I plugged it in seconds after turning it on when I realised I had forgotten to plug the power cable into it.  The bios screen hadn't even loaded yet.

Install windows and use IE alot. Easy.

:lol:  and the saddest part is that it's true.  I'd say for most of the computers I fix, if the owner hadn't used IE or Outlook Express he/she wouldn't be having near as many problems. (If any)

the problem isn't the browser. the problem is people not running any kind of protection and surfing with admin rights.

Try using IE 5.5 with no updates for a while and see how you do.  Most of the computers do have protection, but it's not updated very often.  Not all of them have had admin rights either.
