Tell Us Your Computer Customization Horror Stories

Whether you're building your own rig, replacing your power supply, or just trying to install some software, there's a lot that can go wrong with computers. We want to hear your most devastating, frustrating, and soul-crushing tales.

Even if you know what you're doing when it comes to computers, things can easily go wrong. A bad component, a spilled drink, some static discharge, an exploded water cooling loop , or even a mischievous pet can ruin everything. Maybe you work in IT and a patch you pushed out crashed everyone's computers, or maybe you payed some serious cash for a fancy new video card, installed it, and realized your machine can't support it. Anything from a Raspberry Pi to an epic gaming PC is fair game. Whatever it is, we wan't to share in your pain. Tell us your computer horror stories in the comments below.
