crys My Computer Exploded

oh god this is not good
like i was at a LAN session today looking to pillage and plunder from the downloads of others with more 'advantaged' connections than me, and as i went to get a plug for my DB port a big bang sounded out across the room

and i was thinking, what the hell happened?

and then i knew something was wrong when there was a smoke and smell coming out of MY computer

not only did i NOT get any files (my computer is not fast enough to play games because it is horribly out of date), but i am 50-50 on deciding whether i should repair it (because it already is a crappy computer in the first instance) or get a new case, + a new motherboard and a new chip (optional of course)

anyway just typing this out in an internet cafe for anyone who's wondering

I am SO ticked off

Wow, that sucks. I've never seen a computer explode before! You should probably just buy a new one.

I'd definitely be like this all at once


I've never seen a computer explode either...but at work we tried to plug in some speakers to one of the computers, and the speakers started making popping sizzling sounds and started smoking (I think they were an old pair of speakers tho)


I'd probably just get a new computer as well and throw the old one in the
