Fail may refer to any of the following:

1. Fail is a term used to describe an issue with the computer that makes it not function properly. For example, when a hard drive fails, it will prevent the computer from being able to boot. See the error definition for a listing of errors and failures.

2. In online gaming and on the Internet, fail is a term used when someone does something stupid, makes a mistake, or is unsuccessful at something. In the picture below, is an example of a fail picture that shows a laptop in a dishwasher. Obviously, doing something like this would destroy the laptop.
