    okay so i have three computers at home, an inspiron 7200 and a 5100, and i normally use the 5100, and then a CRAPPY old gateway, it was supposed to run windows ME but then my friends dad upgraded it to xp about 3 years ago, we've had it for almost 10 years i think lol, and i wanna get a new computer, hopefully a mac, so,

    is there any way i can give the computer the blue screen of death? and make it look like it was an accident?

    Why not just try heating up the mother board so it gets extremely hot and fries?

    well, a hardware failure can be a good reason to change the computer. much better than a sofware failure that can be easily fixed. load a game with heavy graphics and let the game run for 1 day. you might kill the video card.

    happened to me on a voodoo fx playing counter strike. the computer would boot but the screen was unreadable.

    Anything software wise can be fixed with a format + reinstall of Windows.

    I'd say destroying hardware would be your best bet.

    If your parents are noobish, try holding up a magnet to the hard drive or something.

    well how about this?
    Create the BSoD

    could that be fixed just by simply popping in the xp boot disc?

    As above said, I wouldnt go for blue screen of death. That can easily be sorted, sometimes just by restarting your computer and removing a piece of hardware. Your best bet is to go for the motherboard or CPU. Just overheat or overclock it too much. There are probably ways you can do permanant damage if you look around.

    you had an lcd screen, leave one of those on for too long and the image on the screen gets permanently burned into it
