Thumbs up DON"T MAKE US GUESS!!

Please
If you need help with something don't make us guess what you are talking about. Be explicit.
Post your specs and Operating System
Tell us what part you are having problem with
Then tell us what the problem is.

don't say having problem with mouse
do say... I am having a problem with my logitec wireless mouse or I am having trouble with my regular optical mouse or any other more detailed item.
By doing this will save you and those that are responding to your post a lot of time trying to wait for you to answer what is needed.

lol much agreed, happens all the time and then we have to end up dragging out the info we need to help the person who is usually writing in all caps and going crazy cuz their comp has a ticker on it and it won't stop dropping.

EDIT: Shouldn't this be a sticky??

I thought of the same thing with a lot of the recent posts. I would read them and find myself soooooo darn lazy to respond or even know how to respond because the questions were toooo vague.
