    Nothing is wrong with my PC.

    I have no reason to post in any forum except this one - which is getting me down.

    Anyone got any suggestions how I can mess up my PC while still having fun??

    P.S. I am serious.

    Open regedit, and do a find for "t." Delete the first entry found. Do F3 (find again) over and over and delete every other key found until the find is finished. This is fun because who knows what all you'll end up screwing up?! Might want to create a restore point first. ;)

    Stick yer AGP Video Card in one of the PCI slots... If it don't fit, make it fit.


    O.K. Rehash...

    1 part AGP Video Card
    1 part PCI slot
    1 part Your Computer

    Merge together in any possible way to make fit.

    Reboot... Cook for as long as it can. Enjoy :rolleyes: :p


    Alternate Recipe...

    PEANUT BUTTER ROM

    1 part Your Computer
    1 part CD ROM Drive
    1 part Jar of Peanut Butter ("crunchy" or "smooth/creamy")
    1 part old CD

    Merge together CD and Peanut Butter

    You could try "overclocking" you power supply by wiring it to several mains outlets simultaniously...

    You could get 10 tubes of Arctic Silver and combine them on a palatte, then brush it on your entire mobo, sound card, and video card (of course, with power disconnected first). Once the painting process is complete, turn power back on, boot system and monitor temps with your favorite monitoring software. Please post results when complete.

    Harmless but fun(?):
    Get some emulators and see how "deep" you can get. (install Linux, then install wine it that, then install an Amiga emu in that, then a Commodore64 emu under that. Yes, I've seen it done; scary)
    OR
    See how many OS'es you can get installed (and working) on one drive

    Iffy:
    Find an old BIOS version (preferably from a different vendor) and re-flash your bios.

    Umm...? :
    Unplug your drives and connect the IDE channels together.

    Give your computer a bath.

    See how many windows you can open before your memory runs out.

    Set your kids free onto it.

    Learn hacking.

    Water cool the old fashioned way. :blink:

    theres always the last resort, the one thing that you can do when your pc is working fine and you dont have anything to do online.

    Have you considered going outside?

    clear CMOS and flash bios in windows

    then run you pc max load with no fans

    then swap the 12v line to 5v and vice versa

    spit on your memory

    then get your windows xp disk first destroy any backups you have
    get a nice fast cd drive. 52x should be sufficient remove from the case so your holding it, insert xp disk, wait for disk to spin at full speed then tilt it very fast. keep doing this for 2 minutes.

    then shoot your CRT screen

    and destry your modem so no help from ntfs can reach you:cool:

    1. Go buy a box of paperclips (metal, not the coated ones)
    2. Open computer case
    3. Place half box of paperclips inside case.
    4. Power computer on
    5. Shake computer case well

    This can be intertaining (and profitable) if you get a group of friends over and take bets on what card will be the first card to fail

    If you have an Intel board, try wiring in an AMD chip.
    Or visa versa. :D
