Negatively, it may mean the abandonment of talents and powers represented by the amputated limb.

A computer represents highly sophisticated levels of mental organization, thought, and memory.
A computer is a symbolic representation of the brain itself. There is an operating system that allows other software programs to run. This is like the network of nerve cells that make up the majority of brain tissue. There is also a hard drive, which stores everything that has ever been inputted into it. This is akin to the neural pathways created by the brain’s recording of sensory data it receives in the form of memory and knowledge. There is RAM, or desktop memory, which is like your conscious mind. This includes your daily production of short-term memory that is processed each night when you dream.
The process that occurs during REM sleep is much like backing up your computer files for protection on a daily basis. When a computer features prominently in your dreams, you are considering how your mind is working.
The state of affairs in your dream computer may very well be mirroring the state of affairs in your current thought patterns.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

A computer is a symbol of the rational unemotional part of your mind, but it can also suggest your personal potential or abilities, your memories and stored information, and even your unexplored potential. The computer and other high- tech gadgetry are such a part of our lives now that their meaning depends very much on the other images in your dream.
If you work a lot with computers, they may simply be a means to an end but they may also be a reminder of your potential or abilities. Keyboards have replaced typewriters and are—along with slots for floppy disks, CD-ROMs and DVDs—Freudian symbols of female sexuality. Computer screens or monitors are associated by Jungians with the search for knowledge in cyberspace, whilst computer hackers are associated with Jung’s trickster archetype in their ability to bring chaos to order. The computer hard drive can represent conscious, physical and material side of you, with the software representing your inner self and the curser and mouse the direction your life needs to take.
If a cursor is frozen or a hard drive crashes in your dream, this could suggest obstacles and blockages that stop you progressing in waking life. See also EVERYDAY THINGS.... The Element Encyclopedia

Because of the ease with which computers can file, son, cross reference and present information, a great deal of work has been done in analysing the content of thousands of dreams (The Content Analysis oj Dreams, Hall and Van De Castle). As computers are an everyday pan of many homes, we can easily use them to gain insight into our own dreams. Two areas of help are as follows.
We can enter many dreams, then with a program such as Seeker or Masterfile, easily scan through them to see the frequency of dream themes. This approach to dreams—self insight through a series of dreams—is explained by Hall in The Meaning of Dreams. Important issues in our life and development occur as frequent dream themes, and are easily seen using a computer.
The program Brainstonn (Brainstorm Software Ltd) makes cross referencing dream symbols and associated comments easy.

Gradually a reference base of your own dreams and comments can be built up and quickly scanned. Such comparisons help to form a personality profile of yourself or others. ...

This dream often occurs when an internal conflict is taking place or when you have to make a difficult emotional decision. As with real-life disputes, reaching a happy medium means the best solution. Nothing is black or white. On the other hand, this dream is trying to express those emotions that you do not normally show.
If you know the person you are arguing with, it may represent aspects of your nature that you do not accept. Its meaning can also be literal and you are truly resentful of that person.
Superstition says that this dream portends unhappy relationships in love
The brain is not a computer, but it has the power to compute.
The word computare is Latin, and comes from putare, to think. Neither is a computer anything like a human brain. But there are parallels. Christopher Evans, a psychologist, computer scientist and world authority on microprocessors, says the brain and computers are both information handling devices, taking impulses which in themselves mean nothing, like sound waves, and processing them.
It is also his theory that both computers and the waking-brain function are taken off-line to re-program. Our behaviour responses and information bases need bringing up to date with any new experience and information that is relevant. In the case of the computer, off-line means having modifications made to programs, in the human it means sleeping and dreaming, the dream being the powerful activity of review, sifting and reprogramming. Thirdly, the brain and computer use programs. In humans, a program means a learnt set of responses, values or activities, such as walking or talking, but including more subtle activities such as judging social or business situations.
If, as Christopher Evans believes, dreaming is partly a period of revising and updating responses, insights and skills, then by working with the process one can make it more efficient.
The background for this statement is that many people have recurring dreams which change very little. Looking at this from the programming’ view, the attempt to revise is thwarted. But individuals can free such ‘stuck’ dreams by using dream processing.
Also, as some dreams are obviously a synthesis of experience and information gathered over a lifetime, the dream process is much more than a computing function which sorts new information and updates.
It is also capable of creative leaps through synthesis and conjecture. J.B. Priestley’s dream of the birds (see religion and dreams) appears to be a massive synthesis of things observed over a lifetime. It also depicts a brain function like computer simulation, which takes information and forms it into an expenmental view of possibilities arising from the thousands of millions of separate bits of gathered data. See ESP in dreams; creative and problem solving dreams. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences
The forehead in a dream represents the honor, standing and dignity of the person. Ifit is seen blemished or fractured in the dream, it means humiliation or loss of authority.
If one sees a growth in his forehead in a dream, it means bearing a son who will attain leadership and glory in his life.
If one sees his forehead made of stone, iron or copper in the dream, it denotes positive effects and particularly for a policeman. Otherwise, for the majority of people, seeing one’s forehead made of any solid element causes them to be despised by others.
A normal broad forehead in a dream represents a good character, while a tight forehead in a dream means the opposite.
If one sees his forehead broader in a dream, it means that he will develop stupidity after being intelligent, or become ignorant after being knowledgeable, or become stingy after being generous.
If one sees his forehead turning black in the dream, it means disdaining from paying one’s due alms tax. However, its brightness represents one’s concern and caring for others.
The forehead in a dream also represents one of the sevenpoints in one’s prostration and in that sense, its growth or transformation may affect one’s devotion and assiduity in his prayers.
