Thsi is pretty vague but all I can remember is a teenage boy in his bedroom on the computer (was either computer or tv) and the wires start embedding themselves in his skin. The movie might be based around electronics but I am not sure. Thank you for any help :)

Unfortunately, I do not remember anything like this scene in "Pulse." 

What is described is very familiar.  Maybe it was one of the "Elm Street" movies?

You're right Andrew. I don't think there was a scene like that in Pulse now that I am starting to remember more of it. It's been years.

Only other computer/electronic movies that I can think of that might have that were early 90's.

Ghost in the Machine

Brainscan

But I don't think either of those have that scene either.

Here are the death scenes for the Nightmare on Elm Street movies.

The motorcycle one is where the bike meshes with the kid.

That could well be the scene I'm thinking of, which unfortunately is not of assistance to Bat Popsicle.  There is a scene something like he describes in "Monster High."  The nerd who always plays computer games becomes a killer computer robot thing:

Thanks guys but it's not any of those. It definitely wasn't an Elm street movie. I am familiar with a lot of horror like a lot of you. This was some cheesy B horror flick, that the 80's is famous for, and I don't think I had ever heard of before but I could be wrong. It was so long ago.

It sounds a little part of Deadly Friend.  Teen boy is experimenting with robotics.  Can't remember if there might have been some nightmare scene about his electronics.
