>getting so angry at something as inconsequential as a videogame that you LITERALLY FUCKING SMASH THE FIRST THING YOU SEE
>basic human emotion
I wasn't even trying to turn this into a nationality thing but shit, you Americans are weird.
A Secondhand Genesis I bought had rust spots all over the metal shell inside it and shit, plus fucking old backwater garage shit inside it
board was clean though for the most part and I do believe it'll work, but god damnit
you can still send it in, I had opened my DSi and sent it in, they didn't give a single fuck and just fixed it up for me

DAMNIT HADES, STOP THROWING UP ON MY GOOD CHINA
I gave up video games for a year and sold my extreme green original xbox, I feel a stab of regret every once in a while, course I still have my boxed launch dreamcast I bought a couple years back that shit makes me happy.
My dad chucked and broke my Gameboy Advance in a rental car once. I wouldn't trade Pokemon with my brother I wanted him to learn to play the game, so I was going to trade him something that would help him beat the next gym, but he wasn't having that. We had also had our flight delayed, had to re-route through several flights to get to our destination, so my dad was just not willing to deal with his two sons arguing about Poke-mans in the backseat. Somehow it hit the back of the headrest and smashed the windshield. The screen was completely busted; looked almost exactly like that. Fortunately, he got me a new DS when it came out.
the hinge felt week from the day i bought it (apparently refurbished despite the labeling not mentioning it)
within a year the entire corner snapped because of the stress of the hinge. the only thing holding it on is an almost stripped screw.
I accidentally poured some water on my DS Lite touch screen and I freaked the fuck out when the touch screen went all black and the D-Pad stopped working.
Two days later the touch screen works fine and I just have to push Up really hard on the d-pad, but every other direction works fine. I don't play my DS much anymore because pushing up so hard hurts my thumb
Also I only ever had like 3 games, but it works 10/10.
Fucking Nintendo products are magic
the fan only works during startup and shutdown and the battery has also failed. thanks HP for producing such great products.
>coming to the hospital with an avocado stuck to your hand
In a world of coddling, hand holding and babying. In a world where everyone is a winner and the lowest common denominators are never made to feel anything less than special... Darwinism finds a way.
I don't have pictures but I fucked up a DS pretty bad because of mario hoops 3 on 3. I threw it as hard as I fucking could at the corner of a wall, and it split apart and I sprained my wrist and pulled a muscle in my arm.
>bought an hp laptop in 2008
>around $1000 fucking dollery doos
>it's not completely fucked
>over heating problems out the ass
>screen not working some times
>have to keep it underclocked 50% at all times
Could have built a nice PC instead I was a god damn retard.
well I'll be damned. my phat DS had it's hinge broken and so a jackass I knew snapped off the top thinking the bottom would still turn on and it didn't, I just assumed the Lite would be the same
yes you are.
i want to know your reasoning though
why did you buy a shittier PC that you cant even upgrade?
only acceptable answer is college spending 1k on a laptop for highschool is retarde i hope it wasn't a "gaming" laptop
>hp laptop from 2010
>screen light burned out
>BSoDs out of the ass
he must have stayed on for 90% of these 4 years, he fought all the shit i threw it like a champ, it's almost time to rest
I thought my DS was bad. That would be kinda cool though, like a slightly bigger GameBoy Micro
I can't feel bad for this guy. He should have used a spoon to remove the pit.
>Tfw my little sister did this to my DS some years ago
>Can't slice a motherfucking avocado right without mutilating your god damn hand.
That is just comical.
My university has a disected ps3 on display, it was a launch model with the emotion chip
Yeah, there's a thing called "Goo Gone" which I use for dirty covers for vinyl records and DVD cases, but it works fine with plastic too.
Alternatively, you could use rubbing alcohol, that might work better for plastic.
Put some nail polish remover on a napkin and rub it on the markings. They will come right off immediately and shouldn't damage the plastic.
My used copy of Pokemon Stadium 1 had something similar.
Every time I see these pictures I get a little sad, thinking about how some kid probably played on this, laughing and smiling and everything. And now he's all grown up and this is where his good ol' childhood friend has gone.
I can't play video games any more because my ex service dog that I retired with and adopted gets distressed and wont calm down for hours if he hears gunfire or sees any fps gameplay.
I..I'll see you guys in 5 or something years when he's gone.
I can't be the only one who thinks the sharpedo sticker is out of place as fuck
you mean to tell me for years and years despite all the different shit coming out that the owner still came back to this console to decorate it?
>He thinks they're building it
I seriously doubt they got it back together again after they finished gutting it, even without the static.
This happened to my cartridge. I was a dumbfuck and sat it on a bookcase, and it fell over. It cracked the bottom right corner, but thankfully it still plays.
I can't believe it happened though.
That will not be missed. That reminds me, I saw that game at Wallmart on sale for 88 bucks, it is ridiculous.
Because water cutting units are massive.
Yea it happened to my DSlite as well as a few friends of mine. I bought a dbz shell to replace it but fucked up my ds even further by breaking one of the ribbons for the top screen. Even now when i have a 3ds xl im still worried it might crack (though that shit is 2.5x more thick than the ds lite)
>Sharpedo gets a speed and attack boost
I don't remember buying zelda.
I found it at thrift store for 50 cents
DUDES I HAVE THE SAME FUCKING PROBLEM!!!!! I thought I was the only one. does yours burn really hot as well? mine cracked all the slots off the vent. also the screw fell out long ago, what size screw can I get to try and put it back together?
>not having 4chanX
Some guy was taking a pit out of an avocado with a knife and it went through his hand.
>damaged mario rpg cartridge.
now thats just sad, time for a moment of silence.
Cartridge media is pretty robust.
If you opened those up, cleaned them off with ethanol and deionized water, replaced the capacitors and batteries, then allowed it them to dry out for a couple days they'd probably still work.
nah thats not where it belongs
meh its still a 1st party nintendo game, it deserves respect
Never buy ANYTHING from HP. They're seriously the jewest place I've ever done tech support for. They use shitty parts and charge way too much for them, and refuse unless proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to replace anything broken on their systems.
I can't tell you the amount of fucking times I had to try not to kill myself as my work mandated I guide old ladies through reseating RAM and disconnecting/reconnecting PSU plugs because HP absolutely required you try everything before sending out replacement parts.
>Buying a laptop from one of the worst laptop manufacturer ever, with the worst failure rate.
Many years ago I tried to customize my DS and this is the result
>bought asus laptop
>shitty paste job and has 60c idle temps despite supposedly being a really well cooled laptop with most users getting 55c with a 150mhz oc on the GPU IN furmark
>I get 90c on standardclocks in furmark
>shitty defective speakers
>there is a fly trapped in my display
>contact asus RMA
>they never responded
>still under warrenty
>paid fucking 1.5k for it
Life is suffering right now.
Its not the color that bothers me the most, its how fucking cheap the vita looks now. The screen looks like a sony mini tablet shoved into a $20 control pad made for it. Not having the matte background on the buttons and d-pad and replacing the entire front body with shiny ass plastic is just terrible.
They took such a sexy design and made it shitty looking. Im sure its better for durability and repairs or something but its like staring at the before and after of a shitty plastic surgery on an attractive person.
There were some problems on Toshiba laptops some year ago, about the battery and the HDD.
Other than that, they are hard to kill.
Welcome to the 15%. If you bought it from a computer store, they will send it for RMA for you. Bad luck for you if you bought it at Wallmart or other stores like that.
>mfw my N64 is covered in pokemon snap, digimon, and loony toons stickers to this day and regular all black ones just look weird now
>shitty fucking dragon tail
At least know what you're criticizing.
Also i don't see how anyone deserves to be put in the same room with that piece of "art" unless it's another piece of "art" in a similar style
Thanks for the reminder that 3D is PD.
The screen is a lot easier to replace now, but I agree with you. One of the main reasons I avoided a Vita2k was how the fucking screen looks like it was glued on to the system because of the gaps on the sides. Looks really tacky.
That looks kinda cool actually, in a Freddy Krueger way.
oh god why boner
there is an actual RMA form you can fill out besides their phone customer support, I've already filled out a form with a ticket and all over a month ago and they never even fucking replied
This is exactly what my XL looks like. It broke over a year ago and I still haven't sent it in to fix it.
The failure rate goes down drastically of you change the HDD for a SSD and open the whole thing to do your own thermal paste job.
Chinky slaves are not that good when it comes to assemble a pc.
>all my N64 games I bought new out of the packaging
>only one that isnt is OoT
>that I got used
>that some previous faggot got from blockbuster
>who then decided to scribble all over it with a gold marker because it wasnt a gold cart version
>who then gave upafter coloring the lower half of the entire front including the sticker
If I didnt just happen to find the only copy at gamestop as they were clearing out their N64 games I wouldnt have got it. Image coming soon
I don't think I'm worried about thermal paste/heat since it's a 600$ bulky thing with a processor that I really doubt could generate that much heat for it to matter. Unless the thermal paste fucks with something else.
I got a Toshiba laptop as a gift that cost the same as a cheap car. Crapped out in less than 6 months and got so hot I actually did put some eggs on it as a joke but they cooked faster than the gas stove on the highest setting.
>Acer third highest
>my Acer laptop has been running for over four years, is full of dust and has had liquid spilled on it
>still works fine
I should still probably get a proper computer.
First in 2012
That would have been a cool 80's console
That's not how you're supposed to remove an avocado stone. You whack the edge of the knife into it and then twist it and it comes right out. I'm surprised he even managed to get the knife to go all the way through the stone.
>Kickin it with good ol' ma and pa and my 2 year old nephew
>He grabs my 3ds, no one really saw it as a big deal
>Later on I notice the buttons are really sticky, apparently he had something on his hands
>sent it in acknowledging that it's not even factory error
>get sent back a new fucking 3ds in lieu of a repair
God damn I didn't realize that a little soda or juice under the shoulder buttons would be that bad. What would they even do with the old, stick 3ds?
I mean it's almost professional you can barely tell.
I've had two acer laptops that shit out on me.
Got a sony one after that and it's still going strong 7 years later despite being clogged full of so much shit it idles at 80 degrees now
what the fuck is wrong with you stupid fucking faggot. I could have lived my entire life without having to see what those fucking barbaric pieces of shit do in their fucking shithole of a country.

i guess it's my copy now
It would take too long to fix then send so they just transfer data to a new one and get you, the costumer, a working unit faster
They probably use your broken one for making refurbished systems which they then sell on their store for cheap
Isn't that Chris chan's DS? I know he made something similar with Sonichu stickers and some other shit.
Well I can't run any proper games without it melting, but for watching stuff and internet browsing my laptop still works fine. I've had to get a cooling platform for summer, though.

If I ever meet the board of directors for HP I will murder them all.
They make some back and the good rep probably makes up for the rest, the quicker and happier you are with your repair the more likely you are to buy more shit soon
But this is my guess, maybe there's something else in the equation that makes it worth it
This one is my favourite. The madman put screws through the motherboard.
Though the motherboard!
Iam so fucking afraid to open my keyboard. I've had this 15 dollar beast for like 8 years. Not until 2 years ago I was 300lbs and I used to eat so much food at my desk.
I don't dare pop'em off.
Because I suck at putting stuff back together.
One time I opened up my Dualshock 3 to clean up the insides around the thumbsticks and ended up misaligning one of the triggers and almost fucking up the cables attached to the battery.
Holy shit, I just got rid of the same exact keyboard. It served me well for 6 years, but some condensation from a milk jug got in there and fucked something up.
No, give it a couple years of full continuous use and it'll look like that. The vita doesn't have enough games for anyones' OLEDs to yellow in our lifetime and probably never will now that Sony is content to make it a PS4 peripheral.
Are you literally retarded?
>one of my GTS 240s fan takes a shit
>try applying lube to fan but doesn't work
>have bro that has fucked around with computers since he was a kid and does repairs for people all the time
>says to just bring it over and he will replace the fan
>pick it up the next day
I thought using an AMD fan was funny till I realized it's the wrong direction for the heat sink. Tried using it and while it wouldn't overheat it WOULD cause my system to crash. Finally caused me to say fuck it and upgrade my card.
spoilered for everyone's well-being
click at your own peril
>it looks like a mini tablet shoved into a control pad
I knew there was something I hated about the Vita that wasn't the screen, but I simply couldn't verbalize it. This is it.
>you want mirrion ethernet?
>here bee! fuc0k u!
Lel, is that a G62? I have one of those under my bed, same hinge and all broken.
they have an issue where the gpu loses connection to the mother board after so long of heating up and cooling down.
Buy a new PC, don't even put a dollar toward fixing that piece of shit.
This post is perfect.

Good thing I was able to convince the guys at gamestop that it just happened overnight for no reason. I got me double the nintendo rewards points.
Same shit happened to mine when I took it to school and left it in my backpack in sixth grade. I was so depressed. It did teach me to take better care of my stuff and how to have good work ethic, since my parents were jews and sure as fuck weren't gonna replace it.
>tfw still have it to this day, as a reminder of how stupid I can be, and how I can learn from my mistakes.
What kind of retard removes the pit like that?
You don't fucking stab the thing.
Just hack at it with the edge of the knife so that it's buried in it, and then wiggle it to the sides to loose it from the rest of the avocado.
How unfortunate. I'll bet she was really attractive before that baby fucked her up.
Truly the work of a psychopath.
He even took the time to place all the parts neatly in a row, gnarly af
The drink is orange juice and whiskey.
I regularly do shit to the insides of my computer on carpet with no anti-static protection of any sort.
You can just fucking rub your hands on metal surfaces instead of buying one of those unreliable pieces of shit. Rubbing your hands on your tower every couple minutes is good enough.
