I'm sorry if we aren't quick enough for you but some of us do more than sit on HWA all day. Yes there are posts that go unanswered and while I (and I'm sure others) try to read all of them, this site has gotten so popular that topics of the "Latest Topics" list don't stay there for very long. Also, you may have a question we can't answer or that only one person can answer. If this is the case then the answer will be slow in coming.

If a day or two has gone by without anyone replying to your question give it a "Bump" to get it back into the latest topics. Also if helps to have good names. This is what makes people click the thread. Some examples of bad names would be: "Help me pleeeeeease!!", or "Tell me whats wrong!!". A good name would be: "My floppy isn't recognized on bootup" or "My power LED isn't coming on" or even "I get a runtime error when I launch IE". These are names that tell the other members exactly what your problem is.

I think patience is a virtue. Having good Subject names or topics makes a world of a difference.

OK i see thjis poped up and is realy old original post,
I try to took for 0 or 1/2 replyed posts, some time i look at larger replyed as sometimes people are wrong or the infor is correct but realy hard for thick simpltons to follow by think i mean dont know how and not general.

I was a teacher so its easy for me to tell in simple terms and get exsample so they know whats going on.

IN GENERAL
Most probelms result form a few things, as you will see thoughout the forum.

People who (sometimes) download updates ONLY from MS site which updates windows only and dont UPDATE GRAPHICS and mainboard chips sets and system drivers, as ther WHOLE SYSTEM NEEDS UPDATES.
most miss out on system maintenance such defrag and disk clean up.
and let look at firewalls and anti virus software!

IF people keep upto date anti virus and a firewall updated along with MS updates and mobo updates there should be a 70% reductions in posts.

It also helps if the people asking questions on here, will list
the stuff in their system. If they do I'm sure there are a lot of
people on here running the same stuff they are and they will
have a better chance of getting their question answered.

Abit IC7
P4 2.8 800fsb w/HT
Volcano 7+
pc 4000 512mb
40 Gb 7200 rpm

If it's worth doing, then it's probably illegal.
