Had an interesting case once...
Had just started as workshop manager in a new company back in late 90's, when this PC came in, bad sectors on hdd. Found out this one came back 3 times previously for the same problem prior to me starting there, and I am tasked with sorting this mistery out once and for all.

So I replaced hdd (4th one since the machine was brought), replaced psu, and sent it back. A week later same machine, same problem. Right, let's investigate...

It turns out the PC was installed and used on a farm, in the dairy. Right next to the generator for the electric fence, it turns out. Instructed client to relocate PC, no more problems, lots of respect earned in workshop. Result!
