i mean, there's a special place in hell for this
Someone try to replace a USB port themselves?
I had one a few weeks ago that tried to replace a dc input jack. Ended up burning the board so badly that the fiberglass carbonized and became conductive enough to cause a short. I had to take a 1/4" drill bit to it to remove all of the shorting.
an 820-3330, they snapped the PCH die whilst removing the motherboard, then powered it on causing some fire and 2 internal PCB shorts.
The worst part is i had another a week later, 820-3332 that someone somehow ripped the PCH die off, The GPU, GPU fest and GPU supply were all fried too, as well as more internal shorts.
in the few years ive done this, a snapped chipset die has only occurred twice and is simply the most ridicules situation ive ever come across.
Did i win?
my pet hate is gold and silver thermal compounds, and excessive application of thermal paste, i see it way too much...
I would like to introduce another catagory to this. Amazing packaging
Please add to this if you can out stupid my customers ..... If only I took pictures of the worst ones I had seen.
It seems like every week I receive at least once sodomized laptop
Had this one in today, they managed to pull the screw hole for the SSD.
Bonus: They tried to get it back on with hot glue
Issue was thankfully not related to that and the laptop is happily working already
The thing is, this was done by another shop!
