Well I have experienced mostly physical disasters with computers...two of disasters...
One slightly halarious one, happened in the warm days of summer. I purchased a new, cheap brand LCD monitor, but then with great disappointment, discovered dropped pixels. Following that, I endured a week of battling with PC World, as they refused to replace my monitor.
After a successful refund, I instead, purchased a Samsung SyncMaster 15" LCD TFT. It operated fine, clear screen, bright and colourful, good resolutions and refresh rates. But after one week of use, I realised that it also had (in a diagonal row), dropped pixels! However, under closer examination with a microscope, I discovered very shockingly that the dropped pixels seemed to be shifting north
...Then it hit me :amazed: ! I wasn't suffering from dropped pixels, but a parasitic thunder fly nesting within the screen. I left the screen for several days, thinking that the thunder fly would disappear...but I was wrong
. Instead, once again under the microscope, I discovered several more dropped pixels far south...
another thunder fly!
Now I guess it is kind of my fault
, for situating the monitor right in front of my patio doors, in direct warmth. But I found that the thunder flies were attracted by the bright, light leakage at the top air vent of the monitor- something of a design floor I think.
Although that wasn't too disastrous, my second experience was somewhat disastrous. I suffered from an exploding and smoking PC once before...an old one. I discovered that I had overloaded it, for the PSU was smoking and smelt of burnt hair. Somehow a capacitor managed to burst and shoot out from a PSU vent
...it had me diving to the floor!
