I recently fried my only PC when I forgot to take the battery out while cleaning the fans. SPARK SPARK SIZZLE. Now I'm on a dinosaur laptop of my roommates. I think it's running Windows 3.1... I want to make games!

This is a sympathetic support group for anyone who has a fried laptop.

If it's any consolation, Windows 3.1 was for work groups, so maybe that includes support groups :p

People with fried desktops allowed here?

I recently blew up my desktop's motherboard. On my brother's laptop now. But I can't do any work on that, it's really uncomfortable. I can't use for more than a hour without cramping my neck. Desktops are way better than laptops.

On the brighter side, I'll be getting a brand new desktops in a few weeks. :)

I had a netbook once that my brother spilled some tea on. Then I had to use an fairly old desktop with Windows 98. I actualy managed to make a ''game'' on.

Win98 was a great OS if you had the right version :P I made tonnes of games with it :D

My computer is basically dead yesterday. If anyone wants to donate hundreds of dollars to me I'd appreciate that, thanks.

Seems this is dead computer season. I finally got all the parts to build my new desktop, crammed all the cords in the case, turned on the power switch and watched as the PSU did nothing :( Gotta get another PSU. Laptop is still dead. My house is a computer graveyard.
