    I can't turn it off when flashing the bios, cause I can't find a bios to update :(

    lol, first time I've heard of these. clever too - they plug in as a regular USB device and use the 5v to charge a bunch of high-voltage capacitors... when they're full it dumps 220v back on the power line
    The following users say it would be alright if the author of this post didn't die in a fire!

    Would take too long to buy and ship. I've disabled a shit load of stuff in the bios like camera, usb ports, and shit, and thankfully it doesn't say it's disabled in bios in windows, so hopefully that should suffice. Hope they don't test it. Will see tomorrow lol

    I mean you could selectively fry components, touching 24v to virtually anything on the motherboard will cause serious issues

    Good question. I don't know where the water stickers are, I think they are inside. They don't open it to check, so that's an option lol

    My junior and senior year of high school I went off to a trade school and they gave us all laptops to do our homework on. The laptops sucked and the internet sucked even worse back then. We had to plug in our internet card for wifi.
    Anyways...
    I had a shit ton of porn on it and I accidentally broke the screen.
    So before taking all my porn collection to the schools pc repairman I had to wipe it.
    All I did was strip off the ends of an extension cord and made some sparks by dragging it along every stupid board and gizmo I could find.

    They gave me a new laptop :)
