You know, we've told you this a dozen times...

Quit dropping the printer on your screen!

This reasserts the beliefe that 99% of computer issues sit between the chair and the screen.

Try thinking a bit more expensive.
I punched my laptop screen.

Not a good way to take care of 350 worth of equipment.

And I though me swearing and threats of death were a mean way to treat my computers. I'd cry if I punched my screens . . .or broke any of my stuff.

Tech Support: "Technical support -- how can I help?"
Customer: "!!!!!!!"
Tech Support: "Sorry?!?! Could you repeat that, sir?" (puts the customer on the speaker phone, so everybody in the office can hear)
Customer: "Your =@!$%&* software has smashed my @$!"$&* printer!!"
Tech Support: "How do you mean, smashed?"
Customer: "Smashed!! Broken! Physically damaged!"
Tech Support: "Do you mean you just can't print?"
Customer: "No, I mean smashed!! The top of the printer is completely broken and is now in several pieces!"
Tech Support: "Sir, it is impossible for software, ours or anyone else's, to physically damage a printer in the way you describe."
Customer: "Are you saying I'm lying?"
Tech Support: "No sir, I am merely stating that software that exists on a PC cannot smash a printer to pieces."
Customer: "I'm telling you the printer is smashed! You'll have to come and sort it out, and I want you to replace my printer!"

So we sent a support engineer out. Sure enough, the printer was smashed. On the wall above it was a faint circular mark, suggesting that something used to be hanging there. A brief search behind the printer turned up a wall clock, slightly damaged but still working.
To this day, nobody ever understood how he made the connection between our software and his smashed printer, or how software could do that kind of damage anyway.

Reminds me of my teenage .. My anger seems to have mellowed down with age.

And did it fix it? It seems like an awkward workaround.

keep the laptop, but use it as a desktop.

plug an external monitor, keyboard, and mouse into it.

keep the lid shut, or the laptop itself out of sight.
