XKCD have a cartoon for every life situation

And this is what you* do to haunted laptops:

When I buy a new notebook I intend to show it this picture and thus instill a proper sense of fear in it from the start.
Well, you've got to show them who's boss, don't you?

* "I"

That would make a great desktop background on your next notebook :D

Oh man. You should syndicate that photo. Any number of possible 'motivational poster' captions.

And, I am just so jealous of the opportunity to batter a computer with a hammer. By the time I retire mine the level of vitriol just isn't there; when I have enough vitriol, there's bound to be too many saved games still on the hard drive to unleash it.

Okay, I was lucky in that was my laptop - never used for internet access, and all it had on was interim uncorrected versions of text documents.

But I may never play Tetris again and that is hard to live with!
