How do I start a new post?


I just signed up for the forum and have spent a lot of time reading posts, and am perplexed by not seeing any way I can ask a question.  I have seen no way for me to ask a question except to add a comment to an existing thread. Am I missing something or am I just supposed to read & not ask?


Forum users may join an existing discussion from within a discussion thread by clicking the reply button, or they may create a new discussion thread by clicking the new message button shown in the example below.


Please note that there are several pre-requisites:


1) You must be logged in (signed in) to the forum 


2) Your account must be validated. After registration, an email is sent to the email address you provided during registration and there is a validation link to click.  Until validated, your new account will not have permission to post or send private messages, so if you are logged in as a new member and don't see the button shown below, likely your account has not been validated.


3) You must be at a board level rather than category or community level in the navigation. See illustration below:




Image below shows the button for creating a brand new message to start off your topic in W series board.

In order for the new message button to be visible, you must:


1) Be logged in


2) Have validated your forum registration - there is a message sent to your email to validate after you register.  If you do not do this, you do not have the required permissions to post or to send private messages.


3) You must be at a board level, not category or community level in the navigation.

RupertS and phshannon,


I've added an image in the article which shows the category and board level for better illustration of the statement. Hope this helps.

I bought a lenovo laptop 440p, with windows 7. I find the monitor smaller than I thought and want to add a monitor, and also likely a keyboard. Can anyone tell me If I can do this, and suggest a monitor and keyboard? If you have or had this set up, did you encounter any difficulties? Many thanks for any information.

I have validated my forum registration by replying to the registration message sent to my email.  I'm signed in, but I can't navigate to the board level. I choose board from the drop down list and  enter a search for How do I start a new post?; but the box reverts to community..

I would like to post a message on my G780 laptop, but cannot find the proper location.  My problem is this:  my unit displays a black screen until I plug in the charger.   But it is fully charged.   What can I do to correct this?  This is a new problem, and it is now out of warranty.

Anyone else having this problem? Started about 6 months ago, and is happening with increasing frequency. As I'm moving it, my mouse blinks off with a chirping sound, making it impossible to click on anything. I have to keep moving it back and forth until it blinks back on (again, with a chirping sound). Eventually, the mouse just freezes (as if it's not even plugged in). When this happens, the keyboard also freezes, and no keystrokes register on the screen. The only way out of this is for me to hard power my desktop PC off and on, after which the rigamarole begins again. Happens whether I'm on the internet or not. (It's particularly frustrating when it happens when I playing a game.) It's like the processor loses contact with these USB ports, until the hard reboot. Anyone have any ideas what's going on?

I have signed in but cannot post a question. It could be that when I first signed in a long time ago I missed the validation email and just didn't return to the forum due to other distractions in my life.  How can I get my registration validated at this point? Thank you.
