Hi,

So why am i wanting to do this?

My PC is real bad at playing games and i want to just end it's life without leaving evidence of how it was done.

 

Doing this = New better PC for gaming. My dad wont give me pocket money, birthday money or Christmas money and says "I will get you a better PC when this one is broken" so how i break this with no scratch of evidence left to how it was done by me?

 

Had this PC for a good time but no where near cutting it for me so how can i end it's life?.

Is you dad pretty knowledgeable when it comes tom PC hardware? What I am getting at is you could just open the case and unplug the power connectors from the PSU to the motherboard. It simply won't boot after that but can still be used later. Of course if someone were to look inside it would be pretty obvious what the issue is.

So working for the computer is out of the question? I see you have many posts about wanting a new computer. When I wanted a new computer or something else, I grew a very large garden and sold vegetables at the market to save for that item. I also mowed lawns, shoveled snow, etc. I can't recommend the dishonest route. I started working hard at the age of 6 (grew up on a farm), hard work pays off. There has to be something you can do to earn enough money to buy a computer?

@zingo I can't really do mowing lawns because my dad probably wouldn't let me.

He had some kid knock on his door the other week and wanted to mow the lawn for a couple of pounds but my dad just shouted him off.

I also thought about doing paper rounds so i went to a few local news agents to see if they had any going but there lists where full to the brim with applicants so i put my name down 4 months ago but i still had no reply on those so i can't really do that.

Just a few months ago (I'm also a kid, believe it or not!) I bought a computer with my own money. I feel how you want to take the easy route. But are you really sure you want to do this? If anyone finds out, you can get into quite a bit of trouble.

IMO...this topic is not fit for discussion.

 

This forum does not exist for the purpose of advising children who want something and are unwilling/unable to pay for it...as to possible methods of tricking those who would pay for such.

mate...your dad is waiting for you to mature.

Sit down quietly and think about it....if you were some years older and your son attempted to do this to you.....what would be your reaction ?

 

Go and talk quietly to your dad. Dont try to con him. He is your dad. Show respect for his point of view. Listen to him without interruption.

 

Let him know your point of view.....quietly.

 

Then give him a week or two to think.

 

Find something else to do....study some stuff on BC......help your mum.....show some willingness in an area that you normally dont get involved in....
