I am trying to find out the best way to render my PC useless in such a manner that it appears to be an "accident". I was thinking about dropping it down the stairs on my way into work, but I want to make sure that the computer will not be able to be repaired by service. I was thinking about having the computer running, possibly be doing some large file transfers when the incident occurs to be sure that some serious damage occurs to the core components. I know this is a very strange post but I have been having some serious stability problems with my HP for the past year, and the company I bought it from will not accept it for service unless it has a hardware problem (which it does, but they insist that it's software related). I have full coverage on the unit so it will be replaced if it cannot be fixed, which is exactly what I plan on doing! I hope to sell the replacement PC that they send me to help pay for my soon-to-be MBP! Any suggestions? Thanks!
