I'm sorry if this is innappropriate here, but I am writing a story about a paranormal research group & have been issued a challenge to write about a possessed computer.

 

Despite the far-fetched nature of what is being investigated, I am trying to keep the tools and techniques used as plausible as possible.

 

My question is, what would they use to test if a computer is possessed?  I've watched the shows about ghost hunts and have been researching the issue online.  The best I can come up with is an EMF meter but think the electricity of the computer would throw the readings off.  However, I was thinking I could explain this away by my tech guy knowing the electric signature of a computer & the signature of a spirit, so he can tell if something is effecting the computer.

 

Does that sound right?  Or is there a better tool I could use, or a better way of explaining how it works?

Consider check sum errors....  all bits in a given data field must equal a predetermined value,  anything added or deleted would skew this result, thus possession??  Take it from there....

Not much difference between possessed and virus-infected except maybe the country of origin......

Maybe you can have a virus of sulfuric origin infecting computers world wide and collecting every secret nasty, vicious and degrading thing people do on twiter, tumblr, instagram and facebook and use that to condemn their eternal souls.....

 

That would get rid of most of Hollywood overnight!

 

LOL!

Oh yeah, don't forget the scene where all the minions are doing the Hoo-Doo Voo-Doo dance around the Steve Jobs altar in their Stanford Graduation Robes while sacrificing another section of the Bill of Rights.

But to try to answer your question....

 

Satanic chanting and/or EVPs coming out of the computer speakers.....

 

Abrupt personality changes occurring in users resulting in eventual suicide

 

Anyone trying to open the electronics box being electrocuted

 

Strange rambling emails coming from no known address or the email account of a dead person

 

a riff on your emp idea: showing the electronic signature of a normal computer of the same model beside the weird signature coming out of your Apple.... er.... I mean "possessed" computer.

 

(something like the Portal/Worm Hole detector shown on this show at 12:30. Be advised, it's a pretty terrible show. LOL!)

 

 

 

That's all I can think of at the moment......
