Feel uncomfortable about doing it.

Automatically check my system.

Thanks,
Hardin

Scan your system for what? System specs? You don't HAVE to use the scanner, but hopefully you're familiar enough with your system to be able to list the specs when asked for them - motherboard, CPU, RAM, video card, power supply, etc? Do you know all those things?

Before we got into this scanning thing, I asked a question. It was then suggested that I Register. I did that. Then I was asked if I wanted to have a scan completed on my OS. At that time, I thought it was mentioned that the information you needed could be obtained automatically. I indicated that I didn't want the scan, and expressed why. Then I GOT WHAT I TOOK TO BE AN EXTREMELY SARCASTIC MESSAGE FROM YOU. You do not know anything about me. You do not know what information I have about my OS. AND IT IS NOT UP TO YOU TO QUESTION MY ABILITY TO FIND THE INFORMATION IF IT IS NEEDED. You are probably an excellent technician, but you should not be communicating directly with people with technical questions.

Content does not fit the definition of a complaint.

I don't understand why your post count is one then. Should be at least two.

Was the question posted under the user name hardin? I would like to see the thread. That doesn't sound like me.

Hardin your post is incoherent. Do you wish to post a question or issue? Or should I just delete this thread and everyone just move on?

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

I apologize to you. The messages were intended for those in "staff" positions. The one regarding sarcasm, was supposed to be a reply to a post I had gotten from "Mickliq".
Yes, I am new at this. Help me get the post to the right person(s).

Again, I'm very sorry.

Wanderer,
Do as you wish. Mickliq got this started with a "Better-than-Thou" attitude. I was courteous and compliant just before, and right after, I registered this AM. I believed then, and still do, that I deserve some common courtesy, and respect.
Please don't think that I am going to ignore a blatant attack on my intelligence.

Respectfully,

Hardin

Geez, the right person?

This is a free forum, the advice given here is given by individuals that volunteer their time, myself included. Any advice rendered should be taken at face value.

That said, I don't see anything wrong with the response made by micliq.

Hardin all it says about your specifications is Windows XP, that is not very helpful, the Sys Scanner is to fill in the correct details, which like yourself, many people refuse to divulge.

Though we volunteer, at the infiniting time of requesting full specs, it was decided to introduce the Sys Scanner, if you have a reason why you should not use the scanner or divulge the Specification, please can you enlighten us !!

Awaiting your reply, thank you..................

X86,
Thanks for your response. Because of how you responded, I feel pretty good again. Whatever I have to do to initiate the scan, let me know.

Respectfully,

Hardin

Reread #1 above again. You don't need to use the scan. You need to provide accurate hardware information. If you can do that without the scan then by all means do so.

So far, I haven't seen a need for any hardware information. Do you have an issue that you want help with?

Read my post to X86 and send me scan info. That's all the help I need right now except for the answer to my original question.

Thanks

What was your original question?

To scan your system go to the words "My Home" in the upper right corner of this screen. That will take you to the screen with the scan option.

I scanned my system, and re-submitted my question since I couldn't remember what it had been after the confusion.

Respectfully,

The posts are not automatically interlinked on this forum (nor many others). The initial post above therefore means nothing to most helpers without either a proper explanation or a link to the post to which it refers. All we can do is search the forum to try to find some other post, which is a bit pointless and time consuming when you presumably have the information to hand.

Ideally you continue with the thread you originally started (assuming you did). If for some good reason you do not consider that appropriate, then when making a new post you need to explain afresh what the problem is about.

Eventually we learned that it was about the system spec scan. In which case there is nothing to stop you giving the information manually each time (in the text), that you think we need. The downside of this is that often the posters are not very good at making that judgement, so posts get littered with requests for more information instead of moving forward. As an example, for this post we had to wait for your #3 before we had half an idea what it was about.

We all live on the same ball.
