    Maybe he is someone who is being payed-off by DaMulta to create this thread so everyone forgets about his self-pwnage? :roll:

    I doubt it, unless DaMulta somehow managed to switch IP's overnight and moved to Florida.

    I can agree with that... putting a whole PC in the dishwasher seems too much.

    CocaCola Kid , If Dell will give you a RMA maybe you could talk them into a full cash refund; Then you could have some one here like myself or many many others build you a REAL PC that is made to overclock and before the overclocking even begins the education MUST first take place;)

    I agree. Pretty large dishwasher it must be. Care to post a picture of that too?

    This is either a joke, a troll enjoying our :twitch: reactions, or an ADHD kid whose parents got caught without the nanny. Prolly the latter.

    It's entertaining nevertheless.

    Coca Kid: If you really are serious then take that advice DRDNA and Jimmy 2004 gave you - clean everything up, put the computer as it was, don't power it on, shut up, and then when your parents come play the indifferent. It should work out well. Not that you deserve it...

    CocaCola Kid , the best advise so far is the RMA ....RMA means Return-manufacture-Authorization which means that Dell thinks the PC was a Factory mistake and will give you another one...kind of like you purchase a board game from the store but all the pieces are missing so you take it back to the store with the receipt and get a new one.

    If my IP checker is correct, CocaCola Kid is D44ve playing the joke of the year.

    CocaCola Kid can prove me wrong by posting pictures of his parent's Dell XPS covered in toothpaste.

    However, chances are, D44ve just played the joke of the year ;).

    if dell looks at it and see's that you didn't do anything, and it doesn't work for them, then yes, dell will replace it. But if it's an obvious sign you f*cked it up, then your totally screwed!

    :roll: This is too much! Kid I'll send you 5 dollars via paypal if you post a pic of the mess you've made. There's no chance of YOU fixing this (you covered your computer in toothpast ffs)... you've got to bite the bullet. Sure your folks will be mad but they'll forgive you... you're a very special kid.

    • Open the case
    • Leave everything inside
    • Wash everything with a garden hose
    • When the suds stop rolling out the computer, get a big fan/air conditioner and direct the airflow at the open PC, so that the insides are drying out
    • Have the computer closed and set up by the time your parents come home.
    • If you're lucky, it will turn on. If not, do as DRDNA suggested.
