I have obtained useful advice from forums regarding computer problems. Usually, they have been computer orientated forums. But there are some basic matters that those asking for assistance should specify, for example:

1)What operating system is being used - Windows XP, Windows 2000, or whatever,

2)Were there any changes made immediately before the problem appeared? - for example, changes in hardware such as printers, scanners etc - or has software been updated?

3) Is the problem there all the time or is it intermittent?

Solutions may, or may not, be forthcoming, but a clear specification of the problem
helps those who are inclined to try to sort it out.
