Well, I thought I could get a few creative ideas here before coming to you... No offense I just wanted to see some OCN ways of killing things.

If all else fails I'll go with this.

That's right. If I spend my money my parents said they won't pay for college. So what would you do?

Um, yes it does... Have you seen the BIOS for a store bought computer? I have two options:
Change Boot
Save Changes

That would require me getting into my computer which would break the warranty seal.

Can't get to the fan without breaking the warranty seal.

Dont waste your parents money.... and possibly make them lose their data which might be stored on your "POS" computer. That computer is fine for any normal sorta work. Just because it dosent game or anything does not make it a rubbish computer.
Apparently you don't know my dad. See the answer about me not able to spend my money.

He already has money saved up for a new machine, his parents won't let him get a new computer until his current computer dies.

explain.

also about destroying it when i said take out the ram you said he would take it to a repair shop, do you realize that unless you specifically destroy every component in your comp any of them can be replaced independently?

Get a needle and poke around the holes of your PSU
post #67 of 132
if this is a POS emachines, there should be an orange switch at the back of the psu, push it over it will up the voltage drastically, thus frying everything flip switch back tell parents computer is broken and new computer....thats how i got my parts anyway but try breaking off a capacitor on the mobo and see if that does anything, dont criticise my ideas, just a few random ones

I don't know if this would do the trick, but try switching you PSU from 115 V to 230 V, it shouldn't cause anything really bad to happen AFAIK... on second thought (lol more like first thought) wait until one of the more skilled destroyers says how safe it is.
At best case scenario, only thing burnt would be a fuse. At worst case scenario (if the fuse doesn't burn in time), a crapload of components would be destroyed. The damage would be quite visible and any decent technical assistance would be able to tell the damage was caused by overvoltage, IE user responsibility.

BTW, read his posts before bashing him, people. He HAS money, but his parents just won't let him buy a new one while that one is working.

Honestly, if your parents wont let you get a new computer untill your old one dies, thats just plain unrealistic, ive bought 2 computers withen the past 3 years, both work fine.

Now, about this "Factory Seal"?

Is there a Seal on the side panel that will break -sticker maybe?- if there isnt, then no one has any reason to believe that you voided your warrenty, Static + mobo = dead

Or, clog up all intake and outtake holes with something, and run orthos for a few hours, open up a game, ect ect.

And if that dosnt work, i really dont know what to tell you
