Is this sentence correct:

1-"It happened with a computer."

[There was a computer involved in this story (persumably this mistake)]

If the same thing happened elsewhere, then it would be OK. Say, the same thing had happened to a mobile phone, then this would make sense to me.;-)

Thanks Tdol,

What about if it used in this context:

-They made a lot of mistakes in their calculations.
-And that happened with a computer.
(And, believe it or not, they were using a computer).
