I once sold a Fujitsu desktop to a guy (compy was for a shop in the countryside). After a year or something comes with his FSC under his arm because "it's no longer working" ! I open it up in front of him ( I always ask them to stay and have a look) . Some metal plates that cover the back were removed as he installed a soundcard but he remove three of those for just one slot ! Inside I found some traces of a liquid on the mobo and I will not describe the look. He said he never had liquid accidents with his desktop... It was true as in a sec I found few small caca pieces belonging to a sweet mouse the came inside did his job and left... He understood his warranty was void !
