Weirdest thing you have found in a computer

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Sometimes I look for a little extra cash doing IT stuff. That includes cleaning all the dirty desktops/laptops that neighbors, friends or family bring to me.

 

Recently I found two little death baby rats inside a case and the other day found a small lizard inside a printer.

 

The client from the rats case wanted me to clean it. When I opened the side panel it was full of rat crap and two dead (almost dry to the bone) rats.

 

The lizard client was from a guy who's printer didn't want to print. So I plugged the prinet to my laptop, installed the drivers and everything was working just fine. So I sent the test-sheet to the printer and it printed with good quality, sharpness and definition but...half of the lizard's body was stuck to the back of the paper.

 

So...what's the wirdest thing you have found in a computer?

 

**Sorry if my grammar is bad :)

Once I found 16 meters of sewing thread inside a laptop. It was wrapped around the fan.

Ive found strange stuff on fans as well, plenty of string, thread, who knows what. Inside cases, as a general rule; if it can fit, I've found it. Pieces of food, batteries, kids toys, a neodymium magnet (I have no explanation for this, wasn't hurting anything, bitch to remove). Also a fair share of large insects (I hate spiders...will kill them all with fire), thankfully no mammals.

Someone found a dead cockroach in their case when doing a buildlog. The wired thing is that it was right out of the box.

I agree there wasn't any other choice, had to put it down.

I once found what appeared to be all the green skittles from a package of skittles inside of a computer... I guess the person didn't like the green ones (or they were saving them for later?).

I found nearly a half inch inside my friends old computer. It had been idling in their guest room for nearly a decade and on one had even touched it for over a year.

when your friends change your starting page on your web browser then go to a LAN party at a church and I proceeded to open it because i didnt know what happened and got sent to nobrain.dk... worst moment ever

 

if you dont know what it is then look it up but take caution you might find something disturbing with 3 old men
