…your day starts like this:
Dare i ask how that got there?
Gotta love the user’s for their imagination. You ought to buy them one of those kids toys where you fit the shapes into their associated holes. Probably wouldn’t help though
Who uses CDs anymore?!
A lot of ppl uses cds pretty stupid comment. my question who still has a floppy disk wow?
i was cleaning out my storage shed with my kids and found one and they didnt understand what it was lol
why fix it ? chances are that the user who was dumb enough to do this, is too stupid to use whatever software maybe installed via CD … and how much does this tech get paid anyways ? After unit-removal, diss-assembly, picture taking, and posting online etc., then re-assembly etc., I’m guess he wasted more money than a CDROM is actually worth. Dumb all around. I would fire the moron user along with the tech.
mate… seriously how long does it take you to take a pc apart… literally a 5 minute job… even if he replaces the cdrom, he still has to take the pc apart… not too hard to just undo a few extra screws
and you think you are a geek….. -_-
Someone actually opening a CD drive and fixing it? I’m always told to just replace them..
Granted they are now $20, but at one time, they were in the $100 range. One of the easiest fixes was using a rubber band to replace a broken belt. Not that hard to take out 4 screws and do a little investigative work.
That’s true. I have fixed that, except I made a hook out of a paperclip instead of opening up the drive.
LMFAO how did that get in there?
I’ve had to do this a few times over my time in IT.
rofl, Apple User? xD
I’m not surprised in the slightest. When I worked as a school IT technician, it’s amazing what you’d find hiding in floppy disk drives (floppy dust covers, coins, sweets, sweet wrappers, paper, gum…) or even in the cases themselves. Take an unloved IT room in a remote corner of the school, use it almost entirely for cross-curricular IT lessons and the “alternative curriculum” set, and you find cables swapped, blanking plates (both plastic and the metal ones behind) removed, creatively rearranged keyboard keys (usually to spell out an expletive, but someone once moved all the number keys one space to the left – genius!), castrated mice (back in the days when they had balls rather than LEDs)…
Oh, and if the PSUs have voltage selector switches, make sure you superglue them in place
