Default Talk about lucky

I thought i lost $2,000 just a few seconds ago!!!

My computer started a mini fire and still runs!!!

I thought i'd have to replace the motherboard but it still works!!!

My one fan i got i put in there and the 3 pin connection started a small fire for about 5-10 seconds and i just thought the motherboard was shot but everything works great right now!!!

Just need a new fan!!!

My friend's crappy Emachines, which has a Cyrix in it, started a little fire like that.

Turns out his Hard Drive and memory were faulty.


He had to spend $100 on a used Hard drive and memory sticks.
