The trouble is you post the same question on more than ome forum then anyone trying to help you won't see all the responses you may have had and thus waste their time, and yours, repeating the same advice.

I am afraid I agree about the multiple postings along with those who entitle a thread 'Help' and give no other clues as to what the problem is (not you simon)

I have also fallen fowl of the multiple entry rules and I am not convinced that they are necessarily right.

I posted a thread for information about a mail order scam on every forum to make sure everybody was aware because I am sure that not all readers look at every forum. I did not expect any answers from anybody, it was just for info, but you should have seen the vitriolic responses!

If your posts are for information to others then I have no objection to posts in all appropriate forums. You are not looking for responses.

I wasn't being critical of Simon, as he wanted an answer, it's just helpful to those who do respond to be able to see what others have said already and therfore to be aware of postings are on more than one forum. If you post to multiple forums all I personally would ask is that you take the step of providing a link to the other posts, not leave it to other forum members to do it for you and wasting their time.

Simon, hope you have found a good sopurce for the pc you want.
