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 or Quick 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 Community.

I can't start a new post. I have logged into the forum and validated my account but am unsure how to check whether I'm at board level. I can't see the 'new message' image.

How do you navigate to board level?

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.
