From Simonsells91: Posting the system configuration helps a lot when it could be a hardware problem. Also, taking a Pit test and posting the link to your Tech Express in the first post will be a big help.


From rjmcc99: Make the topic indicative of your problem. Don't just write "help" or "problem." Many people don't even open a topic so titled.
