Burning your "OC", whyz and howz …

Filed under: Oracle General — Sidhu @ 8:32 pm

The very first question that may come to your mind is: what the heck this “OC” is ? Well if PC stands for Personal Computer then OC stands for Office Computer πŸ˜‰ The story behind all this is:

One of my friend (He is working in a non-IT company) called me and asked how to burn a PC so that it no more works πŸ™‚ Why ? because the PC they are given is too slow & old and thats the only way they can get a new one. I thought for a while and 1 or 2 ideas came to my mind. But to dig into little more details I called my friend Vaibhav ( The guy I call to “discuss” and “know more about” all the techie things) He gave some really nice ideas. Combining all the thoughts, here is the summary of all the methods that you can use πŸ˜‰

  1. Water the motherboard: Add a bit of salt to water, fill a syringe and use it to spread water on the motherboard before booting. It will blow the motherboard.
  2. Stop processor’s fan: One more thing put something in the processer’s fan to stop it so that processor gets heated and it stops πŸ™‚ but here chances are more that the system will shutdown or restart.
  3. Break pin(s) of processor: Another interesting and simple thing that you can do is, break one or more pins of processor and put it back in the slot.
  4. Remove one or more ICs: Another thing that you can do is remove one or more ICs from the board. As the board is already so clumsy, nobody can see that anything has been removed from there.
  5. Use Pencil: Use a carbon pencil and rub it on the golden plating of RAM slots, any ICs near CPU or BIOS. Its gonna spoil that πŸ˜‰
  6. Cut some wire: A very simple method you can use is that cut some wires or data cables in such a way that nobody can see it πŸ˜‰

One update from comments posted by Vaibhav: Most of u might not know abt the voltage selector switch at the back of the SMPS in the CPU tower. It is there to select between 110V(american) and 230V(indian). The trick is to just switch it to 110V πŸ™‚ The SMPS has no protection of over voltage at this high level and will burn instantly.

Advantages:
-No need to open PC
-No Smoke or sparks
-Nothing can be found on u if checked(like syringe, screw driver or wire cutter)
-Instant
-One Second Job
-Can be done again and again if system repaired

Disadvantages:
-Replacing SMPS makes the system operational

Well, few things you can try if you too have an old computer in the office. Best of OC Burning πŸ˜›

  2. another way to get a new PC is as follows:

    1) Write a batch program or script(Win/Unix) that forcefully shutdown the system and schedule it after every n number of minutes ….
    2) Open each and every file, about which the antivirus alerts you that its a virus ……
    Hell of ideas are coming out for my “destructive” mind……

    Be aware that try to implement all these things just after an important project will be assigned to you(obviously it will have a deadline) or just before the project’s deadline…

    Don’t forget to share your experience, if someone try this ….:)

    Now, that post is what i call entertainment.

    There is a very simple and smart way to make a PC useless. Most of u might not know abt the voltage selector switch at the back of the SMPS in the CPU tower. It is there to select between 110V(american) and 230V(indian). The trick is to just switch it to 110V πŸ™‚ The SMPS has no protection of over voltage at this high level and will burn instantly.

    Advantages:
    -No need to open PC
    -No Smoke or sparks
