Computer Dead

I was getting ready to install Gentoo Linux on one of my older computers. While carrying down the dark country road from my parents house to mine, with the computer tucked under one arm, and a keyboard, network cable, and CD tucked under the other, the computer frame slipped out of the back of the case, and hit the road. I had forgotten to check that it was screwed in. Nobody to blame but me.

Score: Frame slighty bent, CD, and HD’s spin up, ethernet card lights up, but I think the CPU is history. Nothing comes out on screen, and the numlock and scroll lock keys don’t light up the lights on the keyboard
