Computer frozen?  
This just came to me.

What to do if your computer freezes:

1. Don't panic. Gently unplug the computer.

2. Move the computer to a warm location, but not too hot. Near a heater or fireplace (not too near!) is good.

3. Place a towel under it to collect run-off.

4. Do not use any sharp objects to remove ice, especially on the motherboard. Remove any large pieces of ice that fall off.

5. When the computer is unfrozen and completely dry, plug it back in and test it.

A friend online was complaining that her computer "froze solid." I envisioned a computer left out in the snow, covered in ice. I wanted to get an old, dead computer and freeze ice onto it, but then I decided to just make it an entry.

You know if a computer freezes you just have to go get a new one. Ghaa... How do people not know that?...*silly-know-it-all-smirk*

When my computers freeze, I like to stuff crumpled newspaper up and stick it inside. Then, a squirt of lighter fluid and a lit match...

Works WAAAY faster than allowing it to thaw out!

Anyway, ummm-yeah....yer goofy! :)
