Windows 7: Something for Admins to Work On...

Something for Admins to Work On...


My name is Andy and I came to this forum because I was just completely out of luck with a dozen other places where I tried to get help online. I'm sure admins can easily find my other post (it is the only one on this forum). Anyhow, I just wanted to say that someone quickly responded and he sounded extremely knowledgeable. He also followed up once or twice so that was also quite nice but...just one problem.

Your tech people on this forum really sound like they know computers...that's not a problem at all but the fact guys don't understand that most of us who come here are not tech savvy. I kept getting a message about CPU Throttling and something about CPU-Z. I checked other posts and other people seemed to be having the same problem. I read one guy's responses to a tech support specialist and he kept having to simply say, "I'm lost..." because he (just like me) didn't know what on earth the tech specialist was talking about.

That's just a courteous request...take it easy on us. You really don't know how we all appreciate your help but please try to understand that most of us don't know nearly a fraction of what you know about computers. I'm young and fairly descent with computers...I know about the various software applications and hardware in computers (drivers, codecs, video/audio players, graphics cards, sound cards...etc) but I still don't know 90% of what the forum techs know.

That's pretty much guys know A LOT...just try to put things in layman's terms when you can.

I think I won't need tech support for a long time...just needed help with my sound issue.

Thanks for the help while I was here & take care.
