Never really yelled at it but only call it names when it doesnt work properly. The worst time was when I was just at the end of a REALLY hard stage in Mirror's Edge, and then Windows update came along and restarted the computer without saving the game. I thumped it in the side really hard and made a dent in it. Then I wished I hadnt done it and said sorry to my computer :P

Ya I yell at my computer when it starts lagging on games its suppose to conquer. Or when I'm torrenting something for 3 days and still doesn't finish. I'm sure we all saw Rodney's frustration during his blooper videos ROFL.

I was playing Supreme Commander(any one who plays this game should know how long it takes to setup a base) and as I JUST got my base built very nice after about half hour crappy Windows update shut down my PC to install updates(even though I delayed it for 4 hours).

I didn't shout though I couldn't, it was late and everyone was asleep =/

I haven't yelled at the PC itself, I have yelled at games.
Went angry German kid on my keyboard a while back :P
I manage to keep my cool 99% of the time though...

Since I've built the new box, I follow the philosophy of: "If you call it sexy once a day, it'll work better". So far it's worked.

On my old POS box, I yelled at it on an almost daily basis, it was so obsolete by the time I replaced it though.

Yes usually when i'm gaming and i hit the Windows key by mistake or when i almost complete a level in an fps or 3rd person shooter only to be killed just as i think i'm nearly done.

Yes, i have yelled at WINDOWS 7's MEDIA PLAYER! It really sucks. It's the worst program i have ever used. Vista's media player worked well, though.

Yeah, in CoD4, where I accidentally pushed the "Chat" button.

Oh yes more than once. I think the moment where is was most annoyed was when I switched all of my old components into my new case to find my system not functioning. Took me 2 weeks to find out I had killed the motherboard. Yep I sure am slow. I think I was mostly angry since it was 5am when I found out it didn't work and had been excited about checking the new cooling temps for such a long time. I don't yell quickly but FFFUUUUU I was mad at that point.

About the same thing happened when I found out my memory controller inside of the i7 was malfunctioning. Yes strange problem but it sucks when you can't use tripple channel.

i dont yell at it. My buddy got so mad at his old pc, he took a dremel rotary tool to it. After he cut the case to bits, chopped the mobo and fans apart. He then realized now, he had no pc.

I voted Other.

If i recieve a defective piece of hardware. I usually get pissed. But i eventually calm down and come to my senses. Then i test it one more time and then i start yelling at the defective piece of hardware. Not my system itself.

Then i call the manufacturer and yell at them. Then i send it in and it usually takes a long time before i get a replacement. Which really SUCKS because i just got it! I had the piece of hardware in my hands! It was supposed to work out of the box!

The art of waiting is a bitch.

No, I have never yelled, but I have mumbled profanities at it hundreds of times.

I pretty much call it a few names until it decides to work. never really get super mad at it though. I enjoy the challenge in fixing it:)
