I think that there are many posts that begin with something like "My computer does not start up", Fuzzy scree on boot, etc, and that it would be a useful thing to have.
I was thinking that it should be organized something like this.
- BIOS settings
- Generic type problems with diagnosis (bad screen for example)
- Bad RAM causes...
- Bad Video card causes...
- Bad hard drive causes... ect
All of this should be kept as generic as possible of course, but most computers are built in mostly the same way (for the most part they all have hard drives, usb drives, BIOS, power supplies, etc) and so much of the information should be the same (at least on the diagnosis side, if not the solutions).
Thoughts on creating such a thing?
