We know that people sometimes go too far in their attempt to get a job done. There are moments when they are caught up in their daily activities and they fail to realize they are about to get themselves into a lot of trouble. This happens a lot often than you think, and people are usually not aware of it until it is too late. The mistakes that happen are usually avoidable, but people need to recognize the process of how mistakes are allowed in order to succeed in their effort to avoid them. As the list below suggests, some individuals have been in a lot of trouble at a particular moment in their careers, not to mention that they undoubtedly needed help. Tech support surely had to be called in each of those moments.

1. The HDD

It seems that some people nowadays need to be aware of all the technical bits about the equipment they have at home. This would allow them to be more careful and take good care of their units. In this case, the HDD you see here would not be capable of operating anytime soon, and we could all see why. It is shattered to bits, which is why it must be handled with care next time.

2. The RAM

We understand that people out there do not understand how a computer works, but it is not their job after all. The things they do with a computer are limited to using them, not being able to fix them. When an upgrade is needed, it is most likely related to additional operational capacity. RAM must be added in such cases, but it must be handled with care, otherwise, things might end up like the unfortunate event in the picture.

3. The card

Again, the best thing to do when you want to use your equipment for a long time is to be careful and to handle it with care. There are moments when this is almost impossible, but we still believe an effort must be made. The image here shows a situation that no tech support personnel can help with. It shows a broken memory card that is way beyond repair.

4. The keyboard

We believe that if text support people can recall of the things they were called to fix, they would be able to write countless incredibly funny and even peculiar books. This is one situation that should definitely belong to such a book, if someone happens to write one for real. There are moments when tech support is helpless because users call too late. This keyboard is toast, obviously.

5. The charger

Some people get overly attached to their belongings to the point when they are not willing to give them up, even when they are too far gone. This is the situation with this charging cable. One person was too used to charging her iPhone with it that it literally fell apart, and we guess that been a skilled tech professional would find it hard to repair it.

6. The hard disk

This is yet another situation that people who work in the tech sector have probably seen. The minute you see this hard drive, you will realize that it is way beyond repair. Nobody who is rational about using any means necessary to turn a piece of tech into something usable would even bother fixing this. It appears that something very extreme happened here.

7. The laptop

Well, this is not something that you could argue about. We can all see that this laptop is well beyond repair. There are people who would not believe that a laptop could be mangled to such a state, but it is only a couple of pounds of delicate plastic and metal after all, meaning that it is actually fragile enough to be bent like that.

8. The PC

This is a PC that appears to be smothered with something gooey that appears to look like taffy or wax, but we are not sure what it might be. Regardless of the substance, it appears to have completely taken over the motherboard of this PC. There are tech guys who would probably try to repair this, but it would be extremely hard to fulfill such a task.

9. The disassembly

Here is yet another laptop that is in need of assistance, and we mean it. As you can see, the machine is almost completely gutted, and it needs special care. The bottom part was somehow stuck on the counter, and yet the laptop is obviously working. This is probably a testimony of its quality, and we need to admit is very impressive.

10.

We understand that being careful when handling any piece of tech is essential, but accidents happen all the time, and this is what happened here, apparently. Of course, we have no clue about the details of what happened exactly, but it must have been a severe situation. Nobody in this world would be able to fix this phone, as there is not much left of it.

11. The intercom

This is the result of a call the tech support received about a malfunctioned intercom station. It seems that malfunction is an understatement when it comes to this unit, and we are not exactly sure what was the cause for this mess, but one thing is for sure here – whoever had to fix this was surely in a lot of trouble, and had a tough day, too.

12. The dust

Here is how neglected tech looks like. We believe that people who use their PCs without caring for them, even at a basic level. There are numerous things that even those who have no understanding of how a PC works could do to keep it running for a really long time.

13. The mess

We know that people are sometimes too busy to notice the things that go wrong with their equipment, but we also know that this leads to trouble. It appears that people remain oblivious to a threat even when they see something alarming such as ants entering their machine. This person called for help, at least, and this is what the tech guy saw.

14. The huge mess

You might have seen this picture before, and we believe the person who took it also took some time to sit and stare at the complexity of this setup. We are convinced that it was not designed to look like that, and we are surprised that it works. Sorting this out should be worthy of a medal, at least.

15. The rodent

This rodent somehow got trapped inside a computer, and you can see that it almost looks like it is living there permanently. We guess the tech support specialists are better off calling the exterminators in such cases, and you can see why.

16. The drill

Drilling is not an easy business to get involved with, and you need to know what you are doing. It seems that even the experienced technicians out there are prone to making mistakes, and you can the result of one such mistake here. It is painful to see this.

17. The cables 

Image Source: Reddit

Here is how some situations are way too out of control to be even attended by a tech support person. We know that some of these professionals are brave enough to try to fix this maze, but their efforts would be in vain, we guess.

18. The tree

Image Source: Reddit

Yes, this is obviously a Christmas tree, despite the fact it is not the traditional one you could expect to see in a home or office. It appears to be a very original design, and we can only guess if it works or not. Let’s hope that it lights up, at least.
