Yep, a computer is a lot like child, sometimes they just need a little thrashing to stay in line. j/k of course
So what the heck was the red slider anywho?
Definition: The power supply voltage switch is a small switch located on the back of the power supply. This small switch is used to set the input voltage to the power supply to either 110v/115v or 220v/230v.
Setting the power supply voltage switch to the incorrect input voltage could damage the power supply and possibly other parts of your computer.
The correct voltage is determined by the country where the power supply will be used. Check the Foreign Electricity Guide by Voltage Valet for more information on what voltage to set your power supply voltage switch to.
"Since I live in the United States, the power supply voltage switch located on the back of my power supply should be set to 115 volts."

I have forgotten to plug in PCI-E power connector to the video card and spent a few minutes wondering what went wrong...
The worse one was when I forgot to plug in the CPU fan...

My colleague had this old blueberry phone, about time he got a new one. At least, so I thought - even though he's not much in for change.
So, after some convincing - he asked the company for a new one and got this Galaxy S-something. Finally.
However, at first glance, it appeared it was not possible to copy your contacts like that. Since I'm (supposedly) at least a little techy, I figured: I'll fix that for ya.
So, inbetween the officehours in - I took a quick ride to home to dabble a bit behind my pc for blueberry-software (can't install downloaded stuff at work due to administrator rights).
In all my hurry, I just randomly clicked some download link and - of course - say hello shortcut-virus!
Since my OS is on my SSD and all my games, etc on my HDD (apart from RT2 and couple videos), I thought: let's just wipe the SSD with an OS re-install. Of couse, I could've just kicked out the virus and fix all my shortcuts and all that jazz.
But why bother? It would probably take hours, whilst a clean install is rather quick and easy. Right?
Halfway the install - something interrupted or got corrupted and the pc restarted. Result: no SSD to be found anymore. BSD file missing etc.
Took me 1.5 days to have my pc even _recognize_ an HDD, let alone an SSD.
Had to whipe my SSD clean through command prompt.
OF COURSE, with all the tinkering in command prompt, I accidently used the wrong storage drive number and as a result, I did not only whipe my SSD clean - but also had my full HDD completely empty.
Why did I not unplug my HDD?
Why did I not just get rid of the virus?
Why did I tell my colleague to get a new phone or, better yet, that I could fix it for him??
I still cry at night.
