    First search the forums for the answer to a similar problem

    Use the "Search Function" to find similar threads that might have problems similar to yours.

    Post a descriptive title.

    Don't just say "I need help" or "Computer Problems"
    Be specific, say something like "Problem with Monitor" or "My Computer keeps freezing"

    Explain your problem in detail.

    Describe your problem in detail.
    Include what you did before the problem occurred and what methods have you tried to solve the problem.
    Post screenshots/pictures if you can.

    Reply back to comments

    After people posted proposed solutions to your problems, reply back and post your results if they work or not. Post if you solved your problem so your thread can be closed. Also remember to Thank/Rep the person(s) that help you.
