    You punched your macbook because you didn't know how to tune your guitar for the guys recording at your place ?
    On a serious note tho, the title made me laugh.

    That is one great thing about CRT monitors... go ahead, punch one. See if it breaks, or your hand does. Either way, you get your anger relieved, and your severe pain fix (isn't that why people punch things?).

    I punch my MacBook a lot when my internet connection disconnects 10 times per minute.. which is every fucking day.
    Luckily it's still working quite well :lol:

    Probably a bad hard drive. Buy new drive & re-install OS. Issue resolved (hopefully)

    please just stop telling him he made a mistake, we know it he knows it.
    Jangoux If you have acces to another mac just check the harddrive with disk warrior: http://www.alsoft.com/diskwarrior/

    I've punched my laptops a few times before out of frustration... Broke an lcd once, a hdd another. It never helps and only makes the anger level rise, but sometimes it's the only thing within reaching distance!

    I gave my old IBM ThinkPad T42 a damn good thrashing a while ago when it decided to take a few minutes just to open up FireFox...

    I punched the screen hard in the face with enough force to send the laptop flying off my lap. My hats off to the people that made the LCD screen, it didn't do the slightest bit of damage to it!

    I wouldn't have punched a decent spec. system though!!
