The other day when I was attempting to take apart and clean an LCD screen I accidently dropped the LCD panel and it broke. Kind of irritating and a mistake that did not set me back too much other than a couple of hours of wasted work..
Anyway , I was starting to think of other clumsy computer related mistakes I've done in the passed..
Once when removing the cpu fan (I think it was a socket A?) of a brand new motherboard (around 2005) I slipped with the screwdriver and damaged the motherboard. I did not know how to fix it so I got a new board and have to live on noodles for a while.
An other thing I once did about 20 years ago was after a LAN party (no sleep). I remember having this 19 inch Packard bell monitor in my trunk. I went back to rearrange the monitor because it was slamming against the trunk, but when I opened it up the monitor fell out and crashed into the asphalt. It was kind of broken and I so was I.
Am I the only clumsy guy here or do you have any stories you'd like to share? 😀
