The acer, someone stepped on, the screen is ruined, hindering it unusable without spending more money on repairs than the netbook actually cost.
The chromebook, one day the screen started going out, but I could use it as long as I put pressure to the side in a certain way. It was probably the ribbon that I could have replaced for cheap, but...then I accidentally used too much pressure, causing it to crack, hindering the screen and machine unusable. It would also cost more to replace the screen than the actual machine.
I'm now on the laptop I'm currently using, got it on eBay for around 100 bucks. It's a special edition refurbished hp Pavilion Entertainment PC which originally came with Windows XP, but now has Windows 7. If only the shockwave flash wouldn't keep failing.

true story here

my dog was chewing a bouncy ball at the top of the stairs

as i was playing skyrim i heard my dog yelp

the ball shot like a rocket out of her mouth perfectly ricochet off the wall at an incredible angel and nail my laptop on the screen

broke the screen and rendered it useless unless i hook up an HDMI cable to my laptop to TV

This kinda reminds me of the joke some people use; (This never really happened, at least I hope it hasn't)

I worked in IT, and one day, a woman called saying here computers cupholder broke. /endjoke

But as for things I did to my own computers, I was running IE on XP when a rogue anti-malware program installed itself on my PC. Needless to say, I've never willingly used IE since. Even after Mircosoft improving it a great deal.

reasons I use linux: All of the software problems above. Reasons I build my own desktop: knowing how to deal with all the hardware problems above =P

also if you lose your microsoft office, just use libreoffice. Works almost exactly the same for most things (though the powerpoint equivalent could use a little more love), and its free.

I had a male friend who was also my roommate at one point in my life, and one of his previous jobs had been working IT for Dell, and not just taking calls, but actually going to people's houses and businesses to fix computers as well. He actually told me he had encountered the cup holder thing a few times himself. Along with telling me what he had seen with computers that had never been cleaned out with the fans blocked, ones that had never been cleaned out in smoker's homes, and a few other things. He said that the thing he hated most was cleaning out smoker's computers because the second hand smoke from smoking around them created a brown tar that made all the dust in the computer stick to itself, and the computer, and was horribly hard to get it to unstick and clean it out. All you smokers out there might want to make a note of that.
