Today, the family computer kept overheating. My four-year-old son thought the solution was to pour a nice, cold cup of water on it. FML

Lol, everyone knows that you need Gatorade to cool down a computer. The electrolytes are good for it

At least he tried to help

It doesn't make the situation any less worse. I'll give props to the kid though because I know I couldn't get cold water when I was 4.

you made my night

At least, after buying a new computer, it won't overheat anymore!

Problem solver. I like it.

Give the lil man a cookie

It fixed the overheating problem, didn't it?

Hey you can get him something for effort! But you might want to open it up, grab the old compressed air can and clean out the fans.

Only if computers where water proof

Have you tried pouring rice next?

Some salt too.

Provided you unplugged the computer as soon as it happened you may be able to save it. Take the PC apart (I recommend using a camera to photograph how it all went together) and dry all the pieces. Be sure to unplug the monitor and keyboard as water may have gotten into the ports as well. If you unplug them you can shake the water out. Leave it to dry over a few days and then rebuild it and switch it on. You'll probably need to reinstall everything though.
