Solved Dropped PC on Ground Tags: Desktops Systems Components Last response: March 15, 2014 12:00 PM in Systems Share VanquishGaming March 15, 2014 11:46:46 AM Hey, I'm really worried that I broke something in my PC I dropped my desktop from about 3 feet to hard wood floor. There is a huge dent in the corner of my case but the components seemed fine. I turned it on and everything works. Is there anything else I should do to make sure nothing else happens because of this drop?
