Welcome to PressF1, New Zealand's PC World's help forum. The following tips will help you enjoy your time on this forum.

The PressF1 forum is where you can post questions about your computer.

Our PC World Chat forum is for non-computer related topics. Feel free to join in the numerous community discussions or start one yourself.

If you have a similar problem to one already posted, please create a new thread rather than add onto that thread. This makes it easier for us to help you. To create a new thread, click on the "New Thread" button located at the top left corner of each forum. Don't forget to reply to any questions you may be asked when helping you, and a simple 'thanks' goes a long way.

You can find the forum rules here, they are the same you agreed to when registering on the forum. If you feel someone is breaking the forum rules, you can report that member to the Moderators by clicking on the red/white/black triangle icon located on the far bottom left of that post.

New members do have some restrictions with certain forum functions. Until you have 10 posts the following User CP (user control panel) functions are disabled:
  • Access to the Private Message system
  • Creating a signature
  • Uploading a avatar
  • Editing user your profile including homepage

Once you have 10 posts, these options will open up for you (within one hour of reaching 10 posts).
