    Hello,
    "My computer was making a strange hissing noise last night and this morning when I turned it on there was a crackling noise and some smoke then nothing, if I bring it in can you fix it?"

    First of all i'd check the power supply, make sure its not overheated, then check the RAM and the CPU fan.

    If all that fails, take out the snake, see if that helps

    There's a snake in your PSU! Well no worries, one of the hopefully two PSU fans will chop it up in no time, just turn the thing on :)

    damn! that would really mess up your psu...

    and about the little snake in the picture, on second thoughts, i'm thinking that someone might have been toying with a dead snake...

    hey mafia - ever hear of snake skin shoes?
    That one is big enuf to make a pair!

    Oh sorry - I forgot the idea was to repair the computer - how about a destructive recovery on my HP - that normally makes a fine mess of everything!:eek:
     
  18. damnyak, i'd rather go for gloves and a hat with that snake :)
